Skype Interviews For the Win
Posted on Friday, April 22nd, 2016 by Kelsey Rausch
The job hunt is in full swing and I am sending out applications left and right! It’s really exciting to see all of the different places that have open English positions because each time I apply, I picture my future working there! Many people feel disheartened during the job hunt phase of their career, but that’s not how I feel! I truly feel like Concordia has prepared me to be an exceptional teacher and I am excited about sharing my ideas and passion with my future students. I have been fortunate to have been offered interviews for a couple great school districts and have enjoyed talking with administrators and teachers from the districts about how I would be a great fit for their school! At the Education Fair in Minneapolis on Monday, I was offered a job interview for Mounds View school district for today! When I informed them that I went to school in Moorhead, they suggested a skype interview. Even though I really believe face to face interactions are the best way to connect with people in an interview, I jumped at the opportunity to interview for a potential job without having to drive all the way down to the cities! I was nervous that the interview wasn’t going to go as well because I wasn’t going to be able to make eye contact and whatnot, but I finished the interview feeling very confident about my answers and the relationships I built with my interviewers! Hooray for skype interviews!!
