Dear Job Seeker,

Are you ready to answer the following questions?

– Why do you think you can be a good assistant principal?

– How did you cope with stress at school?

– Did you supervise a school event in the past? What problems did you face, and how did you handle them?

– What actions would you take to monitor staff members’ performance?

– If there was a conflict between a student and a teacher, on which side would you stand?

– What do you consider the main duties of an assistant principal in our institution?

– Why should we hire you, and not someone else?

– What motivates you in your job?

 

It is not easy, is it? And do you know how to make a great impression on the hiring committee, what they expect to hear from you, and how to convince them to give you a job?

 

I address all of that in my eBook. See the sample below.

 

Q. 4. Why should we hire you?

Hint: Most job applicants answer that they have the best qualification, experience, or predispositions for the job. It is not a good answer, however.

First of all, all interviewed applicants have sufficient experience and qualification. They would not be invited for an interview if they didn’t meet the basic criteria.

And secondly, you do not know the other applicants. How could you tell that you have better qualification, or predispositions for the job? It is impossible to say so, for you, or for any other applicant.

Some job seekers opt for one of the following answers:

  • Because I am the best candidate for the job. This is too general.
  • Because I want/need this job badly. Interviewers are not concerned about your wants and personal problems.
  • I meet the requirements for the job. All applicants meet the requirements (we already talked about this one).
  • I have no idea. You rather find one, otherwise we would not hire you.

As you can see, there are many bad answers to this particular question. But what is the right way?

The right way is to talk about something unique, the value you can bring to the educational institution, you and only you, something that differentiates you from the other applicants for the job.

While it is tough to give sample answers suitable for you (each of us is different, and can bring different value to the team), I will list a couple of good answers from other applicants.

 

Sample answers

My job is my mission. I believe that assistant principals can influence the future of the students. I approach my job very responsibly because of that. I try my best to be a good role model for all students and teachers, following a strictly professional and friendly act of conduct. From my personal experience, not many people on leading positions can get as close to students and teachers as I can. That is the reason why you should hire me, at least I believe so.

 I have an ability to see the good and bad in people. I am able to quickly understand how to combine the strengths of different people to achieve the best possible team result. What is more, I work very professionally, and I never allow my emotions to affect my decisions. I believe it is rare, and perhaps I am a good choice for this job.

 

Q. 6. How did you deal with upset parent whose child complained about you?

Hint: One can hardly talk to some parents—they have their point of view, and regardless of what we say, they won’t believe us. For your interview answer, however, you should choose a situation that had a happy ending, meaning a situation when you reconciled the conflict.

Describe what you did, in detail, and show the interviewers that you know what to do when parents complain.

 

Sample answers

This happened to me a few times, although I try to understand each student, considering their family background, intelligence and position in the class, and take action accordingly. Nevertheless, some pupils complained to their parents and they came to school to talk to me. Every time that happened I calmly listened to their opinion and just afterwards I described them a situation from my point of view. I always apologized that their child was upset. After that I tried to explain why the action I had taken was the best possible action, in a process of educating and forming their child. Most times they understood, and the problem was solved. But it also happened that I made a mistake, and in such a case I did not hesitate to admit it.

One time a mom came, super angry, since I kept her daughter after school and she missed dancing classes, and cried at home. At first I apologized for making her child upset. Then I described her position in the class, and said many good things about her. I explained that making her daughter to miss something she liked because of bad behavior was the right way to teach her to stick to the rules, and to respect authorities at school, and her classmates. I tried to stay positive, keeping the atmosphere friendly and open. Finally the mother agreed, and she eventually apologized for being angry.

What the others think:

Antonia Clark, one of the customers who provided references on the bookI have tried to get a job of an assistant principal for the past three summers. They always invited me for an interview, becasue I had the right qualification, but I never received a call back. This year I finally found your eBook, and it opened my eyes. I understood all mistakes I had done in my past interviews. Long story short, I improved my interview presence and finally landed a job at a local high school.

Mathew Pearson, another customer who said some good words about the Assistant Principal Interview Guide. Face pictureI am not really the most outgoing person and I struggle to express myself in front of the others. However, I was able to prepare for my interview with the Assistant Principal Interview Guide from Glen Hughins. I made a good impression in an interview, following the advice from the book. The head of the Department of Education in our city called me one week later, and they told me I got a job of an Assistant Principal. Thank you Glen!

Your eBook helped me to understand why I had failed time and again in the interviews. After completely changing my preparation, I got the job of an assistant principal in the third interview I went to with your book. Sending greetings from Florida!

Dear Job Seeker,

Let me tell you something:

Job interview for a position of an assistant principal belongs to the most difficult job interviews. The applicants need to deal with personal, situational, behavioral and technical questions. What is more, they need to present their own opinion, demonstrate value they can bring to the school, and sometimes even deal with a tricky personality test.

I have seen many people fail in this interview. But,

  • They failed not because they lacked the qualification.
  • They failed not because they were stupid.
  • They failed not because they could not handle the job.

 

They failed simply because they had no idea about how to sell their skills in an interview, what the interviewers wanted to hear from them, and how to make a right impression.

How could they succeed? They were teachers, administrators, graduates and postgraduates, they were people–in all good means. But they were not good in the art of acing a job interview. That wasn’t their field of expertise. Nobody told them what really mattered, what questions they should expect, and what answers they should choose. They failed.

Times have changed, however, for everyone. I do not interview as many job candidates as I had interviewed before. But I am very active in career coaching and interview coaching, and I decided to prepare a specialized eBook that can help people like YOU to ace their interview with ease.

 

Job interview at school, people are sitting in a room and talking together

But after all, who cares about my career, or about the thousands of job seekers who fail in an interview for this job all around the world, every single year? The only thing that matters is if you get this job. I will try to help you.

  • I am going to show you brilliant answers to twenty most common interview questions for assistant principals. It doesn’t matter if you are a fresh graduate, or a seasoned professional with ten years of working experience. There is a good answer for everyone!
  • I am going to demonstrate, with the help of practical examples, how to flourish in personality tests.
  • I will show you how to make a great impression on the Department of Education, Internal HR committee, Principal, or people from specialized recruitment agency who may lead the interview with you.

A few weeks later, I got a position of an assistant principal at the elementary school, just ten miles away from my apartment. This is a great start for my career in education administration. Thank you Glen!
