    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education.

    Interview

    I had a group interview, very easy basic questions and pretty quick. After that I had to go to another interview which was in a bigger location and there was about 100 other people there. We had very fast interviews, literally like 2 minutes, asking why I want to work in this job and to describe myself. Once they have interviewed everyone we were all asked to submit a writing sample from a random question they ask us. Very easy and quick interviews. Nothing to be worried about.

    Interview

    Asked a few questions and then asked to provide a writing sample. The longest part is the requirements you need before you get the interview. You can go to any college and ask if they are offering the workshops. Best advice is to go in calm and relaxed.
