As many of you know I have been looking for better employment for quite a long time.  I have an interview on Thursday evening.  It's just an initial interview over skype but it's for an awesome 3rd/4th Grade teaching job in Boston at what looks like an amazing school.  Any good thoughts and stuff would be apreciated.  Imagine me and Wit living in the same area :rolling:

Thanks for the advice I will check out that website.  As it is an independent school I am going to review their curriculum grids this evening.

I played around with Skype today to get used to talking on it.  I'd much rather talk on the phone or drive there.  Even if it is for a quick interview.  Guess I just have to show I am all modern and shit and can flow with new technology.   :pimp:

And make sure you do it in a quiet place with a good background in view of the camera. Don't put your water glass in front of you (just off screen) or 4' away - you don't want to pull a Rubio ;)

Well I know now that I hate interviewing over skype.  It kept cutting out and hurting my flow.  Finally we had to go to talking on the phone after like the 10th cut out.  And of course I gave the guy my phone number and then realized my phone was off since I was having a job interview.  :rolling:  But overall it seemed to go well.  I was more nervous then I have been on other interviews, which I think actually kept me on my toes a bit more.  He told me I would hear next week if I was moving on in the process.   So we shall see.  Overall I feel good about it but don't feel I knocked it out of the park.  Only time will tell.  I do think this school would be an excellent spot for me.  Oh and apparently I decided my hidden talent was meeting characters from all walks of life while seeing live music.  :rolling:

Thanks:)  Well he said they would be getting back to me next week and would let me know the next steps in the process then.  so we shall see but he didn't say we will be getting back to you if we want you to move on.  I know it's semantics but it makes me feel a little better about it.

Holy shit, that sounds great.  PM me the school.  I have a friend who works in the district.  Who knows, maybe she knows someone who works there and I can have her put in a good word for you.  I know you'd kill it at an in person interview.
