How We Assess Candidates:
- Our recruiting team reviews all applications and select candidates to undergo the selection process.
- This process requires at least two interviews, one of which will be at our Head Office in Istanbul.
- Interviews include case-based studies; however, our main objectives are to:
o Learn How You Think and Respond to Classroom Issues
o Understand Your Key Strengths & Weaknesses
o Gain an Insight into Your Motivation and Interest in education
o Get to Know You Personally
o Ensure You Learn about Our Firm & the Opportunity it Offers
- At the initial interviews, candidates can expect to meet and interact with other members of our teaching team. Interviews are generally in two parts:
Case Study Interviews:
In the Case Study session candidates have the opportunity to think through a real classroom problem that would be typical of some of the challenges we face in classes. Candidates should try to take us through how they would perceive the problem what they see as the key issues to be considered and then, most importantly, give us a practical solution.
Candidates need to tackle the Case Study as if they were not meeting with us but meeting with our students. By imagine themselves solving the problem with the students they will be able to shine at this part of the interview process.
Experience & Expertise Interviews:
This is a more traditional interview process based on examining a candidate resume, their expertise and past experience. We want to understand how the candidate operates as a teacher or support staff, their level of independence and their ability to work within a team structure.
Overall, we want the interview process to be a comfortable and rewarding experience. We are looking for candidates to join our team. When offered an interview, candidates can assume that we are very interested in meeting them. We hope that these meetings will result in them joining us and having a long, successful and highly profitable career at Ihsan International School.
