Paul Wood Gives Us The Inside Scoop On The Hiring Process In International Schools

Teaching in an international school is one of the best decisions my wife and I ever made. Many of you out there are Version 4already international teachers, but if you are not, I, we, encourage you to take a look.
But, as you know, just looking for a teaching position, internationally or in your home country, is the easy part. Landing a job interview and then having success during that interview is truly the hard part. However, thanks to Paul Wood, my guest today, understanding the interview process will get a whole lot easier.
Paul gives us all the inside track/scoop on what hiring managers look for during job interviews.  His detailed and honest responses are both very interesting and very helpful.
Paul has also written a blog post about the process and frequently gives presentations as well.  You might see him at an upcoming EARCOS conference at some point in the future.

“ An open and honest interview is the best way to find a match for you and your school”
