    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hillsborough County Public Schools.

    Interview

    I met with the Assistant Principal for Curriculum at the school at which I was interested in working. The APC asked about my work history and what qualifications I had to be a teacher. He then discussed the requirements for teachers at my school and what expectations were in place for instructors. He told me they would be in touch by the end of the week. They were not. It took them a month to get back to me; I was ultimately hired.
