Sample Virtual Interview

Thanks to Chick Beckley - the webmaster of our Alaska affiliate - we have included here a sample Virtual Interview.

Although Virtual Interviews can include both audio & video clips, our sample page contains only audio. A description of our Virtual Interview process is found at the bottom of the page.

You will need the
free QuickTime plug-in to play these clips. QuickTime offers high quality streaming audio and video in small file size.

Internet Explorer 5.5 & above users for Windows also requires ActiveX to play these files, but there is an excellent testing & installation link which lets you know if you have what you need.

If you have trouble viewing files, see our help page
on this topic.

Our non-example sample interview: Tommy Teacher

Name: Thomas Teacher
Certification: Questionable
Currently: Clueless

Our fictional, politically incorrect candidate has provided some tongue-in-cheek examples of answers to thirteen of our sample questions.

Wherever you see the icon, you can click to hear Tommy Teacher's rather lame answers.

13. Why should our district hire you?

As you can easily imagine after listening to Tommy's rather unappealing responses, he has yet to secure a position for the current year.

Give him a chance, eh?

Note: despite repeated requests,
Tommy Teacher t-shirts are still not available.
