    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cobb County School District.

    Interview

    You are contacted by local schools for interviews, if they are interested in your application. This usually will happen in June, even if you apply in April or May. I would suggest e-mailing Principals to let them know who you are. I was called for an interview by a local school. I came in and did a one on one interview with the Assistant Principal. I was called back that day and offered the job. You then have to go to get fingerprinted at the County Office, turn in your certification, and then complete benefits.
