Getting a Teaching Job: When All Else Fails by Larry Aronstein

Getting a Teaching Job: When All Else Fails                 “I’ve done everything I can think of; now it’s the summer, and I still don’t have a job. What should I do now?” Well, this calls for extraordinary measures. Basketball coaches motivate their players as the game draws to an end and the score is still close by telling them, “Leave everything you’ve got on the court.” This means exhaust all possibilities. Most school leaders are on vacation during July and the first two weeks of August.…See More

What Questions Should You Ask During an Interview by Larry Aronstein

What Questions Should You Ask During Your Interview? Whether you ask questions and what questions you do ask depend upon where you are in the process. It is important to be sensitive to the time constraints of the people on the interviewing committees. They are busy people who have volunteered their time to serve. Keeping to the time allotted for each interview allows them to stay on schedule. As an interviewer, I have often felt like a captive of a candidate. A screening interview is typically…See More

HOW TO GET INTERVIEWS by Larry Aronstein

 How to Get Interviews You’ve re-written your resume and cover letter several times. You‘ve applied for every supervisory job for which you’re qualified within 40 miles, but still you are not getting interviews. What’s wrong?  As an applicant, your goal is to stand out from the rest of the field and be seen as being more attractive and qualified.

LEAVE REPLACEMENT: SHOULD I TAKE IT by Larry Aronstein

  LEAVE REPLACEMENT: SHOULD I TAKE IT?Should you consider taking a leave replacement position? Like most other complex questions, the answer is, “It depends”. It depends on your specific set of circumstances. It depends on the conditions surrounding the leave.What are your circumstances?Are you starting a new career as a teacher? If you have been unsuccessfully seeking a position in teaching, then a leave replacement makes sense. A leave replacement is a far better alternative than substitute…See More

How Screening Really Works by Larry Aronstein

How Screening Really WorksIf I apply for a job and don’t hear back should I call? How is my resume screened? What is the screener really looking for? How do interviewing committees make decisions? Although each district customizes their process, the variations are usually minor. So, how does it really work?When you apply for a position, be prepared to wait. Don’t be a pest and call the personnel office to inquire about your status. They are busy people who are filling many different positions.…See More

Answering Frequently Asked Questions

Answering Frequently Asked QuestionsThere are strategies in answering the most frequently asked interviewers’ questions. It takes some work, but these strategies can readily be mastered. First, you need to think through your narrative -- the story you want to get across about who you are. You should always assume that the first question is going to be, “Tell us about yourself”. The second piece of advice is to formulate a set of your professional guiding principles. Actually write them down.…See More

When to Begin Preparing for Your Job Search

When to Begin Preparing for Your Job Search It is never too early to begin preparing for a job search. Most candidates don’t get serious about their search until what is generally considered to be the “prime season” for job postings in April and May. Serious job search preparation includes up-dating and revising your resume and cover letter, and prepping for interviews. I can understand the logic that the majority of jobs become available in the spring, however I would argue that the practice…See More

BODY LANGUAGE by Larry Aronstein

BODY LANGUAGE There has been a lot of attention being paid to body language in regard to the Presidential Debates. How important is your body language over the course of your job interview?Some experts say that ninety percent of what we communicate is expressed through body language. Body language is a two-way street between the candidate and the interviewers as well as among the interviewers. An effective candidate must be aware of, and try to control his or her own body language. You must…See More

GUIDE FOR RESUMES

Your resume is your first introduction to your potential employer. As the saying goes, “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression”. As a career coach, I rarely see a resume that can’t be significantly improved upon. If you are a well qualified candidate and are not getting interviews to at least 40% of the jobs to which you are applying, then your problem is your resume. The job of your resume is to get you to the next step, an…
