    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Austin ISD (Austin, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    meet the principal, another admin and the department chair of that department. hopefully you've been subbing and have been in that school before. If possible do some subbing and get in touch with the dept. chair - have them on your side, express interest and make yourself visible at the school you want. Interview with other teachers and admins is pretty chill, at least in Austin ISD. Dress professional and go in with some example lessons on paper so you can pass them out along with a few paper copies of your resume.
