    Paraprofessional Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edina Public Schools (Edina, MN) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for a paraprofessional position on Tuesday after taking a few weeks to do the online application; its long but I made it longer by applying for multiple positions. The position is temporary, helping Autistic/ LD students as well as being a bus aide occasionaly. I heard back from the principal of one of the Elementary schools by Thursday, wanting an interview Friday. We played phone tag a little bit since I currently work at a school and am rarely at my phone. We settled on Monday morning for an interview. The interview was prompt, to the point, and began at the scheduled time. There were three interviewers reading questions from a pre prepared sheet. I was only expecting one interviewer so that caught me off guard a little but nevertheless it wasn't intimidating. The interview questions were more behavioral rather than traditional, which I prefer more. They didn't ask about my educational background which I'm thankful for since I have a BA in political science and am in education, so the "why aren't you doing something more in your field?" question is always sort of awkward if it gets asked. I haven't received an offer yet-- I should hear back the end of next week
