Advice for Your Sports Teacher Job Interview

If you really want to nail an interview, devote time, energy, and some resources in preparing for it. Get the best first impression that you can get. Make it one of the most memorable interview sessions ever of the interviewer so that when he picks his choice, you would be on the top of the board. Here are some ways designed to help you make way for that big job interview.

A Well Thought Out Resume Can Get You Far

You must realize that even before the interview, you can show how great you are as a person by ensuring you have a well-written, well thought out sports resume.

Dress (And Look) To Impress

Make sure you are at your best. Invest in some decent clothes if you do not have anything professional to wear. Ensure though that you are comfortable with it. Also, take extra precaution that you do not come to the interview with some ailment like a cough or cold. Remember that you are supposed to be the role model for physical fitness not only to students but to teachers and other members of the school staff.

Be Punctual

Punctuality shows that you care deeply about getting the job. It also shows your personality, that you certainly value the time and effort of the interviewer. Anticipate all possible hurdles that you may encounter in your way to the interview and set the necessary time allowance.

Do Not Go Without Knowing Basic Info About The School 

You must already know a great deal of things about the school you want to join prior to the interview. If you can identify its key challenges when it comes to physical fitness or sports activities, you can effectively show how you would fit perfectly to the teaching roster. If you think that students’ current profile needs an aggressive physical fitness program, then do not hesitate to show how you can be of great use to the school to address this need. Be confident but stay polite and sensitive all throughout.

Anticipate Questions and Memorize Your Answer 

Be prepared to address the interviewer’s questions by thinking of the possible questions they may throw at you. Here are some examples of these.

  • Why did you choose a teaching profession?
  • What has been the biggest challenge that you have encountered so far?
  • What do you think is the biggest problem that young people are facing now? If you think that sports can help address this, in what way?
  • How do you ensure that different children are given equal chances of excelling in sports?
  • What are your key strategies and principles in coaching and mentoring?
  • What is it about your work that you are most proud of?
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • What are you plans in the medium term and in the long term? 

After they ask you questions, you will also get a chance to ask them questions.  Here are some questions you can ask:

  • Do I have a lot of freedom in designing my own plans?
  • What else does the school do to promote health and fitness?
  • Do parents support physical education at this school?
