Getting a Foot in the Door: Helping Education Students "Kick It" during Interviews
Huss, Robyn; Johnson, Christie; Butler, Judy
SRATE Journal, v25 n2 p49-54 Sum 2016
The college of education involved in this study has programs for preservice teachers and educational leadership candidates. Each spring these groups participate in a hiring simulation, when aspiring leaders interview aspiring teachers through role-play in a mock setting. This endeavor provides a simulated hiring environment designed to better prepare students for real-world job interviews. The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of the experience on degree-seeking preservice teachers and administrators. This paper reviews the preparation for the event, the process, and feedback from participant surveys; results indicate this is a profitable activity for both groups.
