I’m really excited to say that we’re trying a new technique to help the Canadian teachers get hired by schools in London with video interview software. We’re the first ones to try this & I think it’s going to help our teachers get hired into long term jobs while they are still in Canada – which I know a lot of teachers would love!
All you have to do is take an interview while sitting in front of your webcam (ipad, PC, Mac...) as if you were in front of the Principal.
You can do it in your own time between now and June 15th. We will be trying this same interview technique with all applicants so if you have already been selected to teach with us don’t stress at all! It’s just one extra tool to help get your foot in the door of our schools in London.
Here are the interview links:
I recommend that you give yourself an hour, dress as you would for an in person interview, and make sure your webcam & microphone are working well. I have to use my headset as my PC has pretty awful sound on its own, so do test your sound out first. The software should walk you through the process.
You have until June 15th to do the interview for jobs that start in September 2012, so be sure to set aside one hour and really go for it! You will upload your resume and we'll be in touch within 7 days of watching your interview. We'll check your references in that time too.
If you are selected to teach with us, then we'll start contacting schools right away to give them the link to watch your interview in their own time.
Let me know if you have any questions at all. I'm also curious what your thoughts are about this new approach to interviewing. Does it make you feel more comfortable or less at ease? Are you excited or scared? Please do let me know your thoughts. Thanks & good luck!
PS) The sooner you get your interview done the sooner I can send it out to schools. Right now, they know what vacancies they have for September so it’s a prime time to get your interview in front of their faces. No pressure of course, but the sooner the better! J
