Nice one, what was the interview like?
The interview wasn't too bad. A few techie questions and a 'tell us about yourself' and a 'where do you hope to be in 3 years' question. It was so much easier than the interview I had for my current job, probably because I had known the people I work for now for 2 years before and felt I couldn't sell myself as well to them! This one was much better though. Can't wait to start!
Here are just a few of the interview questions I have had over the years:
Where do you find yourself in 3 years time?
What would you say is your main strength and your main weakness?
What is your main day to day role with your current employer?
If a user approached you asking for your recommendations, how would you peruse this?
How would you deal with an abusive student towards yourself or another staff member or student?
Have you any training or experience working with children who have special educational needs (SEN)
Just wondering, would it be worth setting up a wiki or something with potential interview questions which people have experienced in the past?
Just a thought, but the more interviews I have, for experience more than anything else, the more I see the same or similar ones re-occurring.
Just a thought anyway, or does one already exist?
Some of the tests I have had at the end/during an interview have included things such as keys missing off keyboards and identifying which ones are either missing or moved around, fixing minor faults with excel spreadsheets and also making 3 power points into 1 and making all the slides make sense at the end.
Also, preparing a list for a project board regarding what issues to consider when implementing a new system or piece of software. Such as future support costs, weather they would be in-house or a 3rd party company and possible training that may be required for both the users and the technical team.
All the best on the day,
