    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Calgary Board of Education (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was contacted by a recruiter two days later for an interview scheduled the following week. The interview was composed of behavioural based questions and questions about teaching philosophy. I found it very impersonal. The recruiter read questions and typed my answers onto a laptop. I received a decision one week later.
