    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Shanghai High School International Division.

    Interview

    There wasn't an interview for applicants to the Marshall Program. For external applicants, some had to submit and present a lesson plan over Skype. As long as you demonstrate some sort of potential and enthusiasm, you should be fine!

    Negotiation

    No negotiations (set salary and bonus for years of employment, possession of certification and/or master's degree, etc.)

    Interview

    First, I went through a teaching placement program which then gave me the chance of teaching at two schools in Shanghai and I requested SHSID. After that, a Foreign Affairs manager Skype interviewed me and it was short and casual. She mostly did all the talking and asked me maybe two questions about why I wanted to teach in China and what is most important when teaching young kids. Overall, very easy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Shanghai High School International Division (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had to film myself teaching a class here in America and send them the video along with the lesson plan. I had multiple interviews with the staff both Chinese and American. They asked great questions and it was very similar to other interviews in the past but it was harder and more strict. This makes me more confident in the school because the interview process was so professional.

    Third Grade Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Shanghai, Shanghai (China)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Shanghai High School International Division (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Because the school is located in China, most of the interview process happens through the internet. Skype was used for face-to-face interactions, a group interview, skills testing, etc. Other information was sent via email. The drug testing took place through a health screening in the US and then another health screening in China upon arrival.

    Interview Questions

    • If you work here, will you be sensitive to the Chinese point of view on history and not teach contrary views?   1 Answer
    • How old are you?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiating is difficult because usually the interviewers do not have the power to fully commit to anything. As with any negotiation, you should rate the importance of your needs and have some that you are willing to give up on. This will show you are willing to work with the company, but stay firm in those points you can't live without. They will respect you more for it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shanghai High School International Division in August 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straightforward. It was a phone conversation with the head of foreign affairs. She gave me a "what if" scenarios. For example, what would you do if a parent insisted that you individually email them all of a students homework assignments. Then she just asked about my general experience prior to the interview.
