    Interview

    It was a pretty easy interview process because of how friendly the interviewer was but some of the questions were challenging. Be prepared to answer not only about teaching methods, but about your expectations for life in Vietnam. If you're passionate and interested in learning to teach children the interview shouldn't be too difficult.

    I applied online. I interviewed at ILA Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Nice girl but did't seem to know anything about the company. I got the feeling it was her first week on the job. She followed a very laborious script and none of the questions followed on from the previous ones. I already knew I would be offered the job within the first 2 minutes.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ILA Vietnam (Wellington (New Zealand)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Skype interview lasted around 25 minutes. During the interview, asked about my motivations for teaching English (given it would be a career shift) and for moving to Vietnam. They focussed on my CELTA qualification - why did I choose CELTA, what specific skills did I learn through CELTA. They also mentioned improvements the school are making in coordinating between HR and teachers, and in securing work permits for teachers.
    I found the interviewer very easy to talk to. He was very friendly and professional. The whole application process was smooth and very informative.

    Interview Questions

    • What are my motivations for teaching English? Why did I choose Vietnam specifically? If employed, where in Vietnam do I want to teach? Why did I choose to study CELTA? What specific skills did I learn through CELTA. What are my weaknesses as a teacher? What do I need from the school?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    My partner had accepted an offer in another country, and for our objectives, this offer was preferable to us living in Vietnam.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ILA Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam)).

    Very friendly but with some tough questions. There was a lot of discussion about life here in Vietnam to make sure I was prepared for the move.
