Overview

Most school districts do not have a full time human resources administrator to conduct interviews and this important task most often becomes the responsibility of the building principal or a department head. Here is a guide designed for hiring employees, both professional staff as well as non-professional, in public, parochial, or private schools. It offers more than 1,000 interview questions in 48 employment categories ranging from superintendent and business manager to security officer and parent volunteer. It includes discussion about the hiring process and the different types of interviews that will be particularly useful to educators trying to develop guidelines and procedures for hiring personnel. Jobseekers, too, can use the questions to help them prepare for career-making interviews.

    Educational Leadership Intern

    As a graduate student completing my studies in Educational Leadership, I found this book extremely helpful. This book was one of the texts required for my internship and it helped me successfully prepare for my mock interview with my professor. It will also be helpful to retain for one's professional library once becoming a school administrator.
