So just had another failed job interview. Did the lesson which they thought was aimed too high for the class ~ and I admit, it was quite a full lesson, lot of materials, you'll laugh but the photocopying cost me £15 at Staples. Class was nice and responsive in general although some of them not very enthused. I'd also assumed from the literature they'd sent out that there had been some pre-learning, but turned out I was wrong so I spent longer explaining some key ideas than I should have. I tried giving off a relaxed, charming, humorous demeanor, professional etc. The tour of the school was the usual really but I could have worked there. The interview was fine, I thought I answered questions well. The feedback was that they didn't like my response to the question 'Why do you want to work for.... ?' I so wanted to say 'well I have this thing called a mortgage to pay' but I didn't, I fed them some guff about stuff I'd read online and being part of an improving school blah blah... Here's the annoying thing, the really confusing thing... the interview was for a supply teaching post. Not a permanent post. It was a long term, day by day teaching role. They could have got rid me of me at the end of the first week no bother! Also, you'd think the fact that I was willing to consider a job 40 minutes drive from home, you'd think that would demonstrate at least some modicum of commitment. So... is there anything glaring above that stands out as me doing some thing wrong? My lesson was OTT, I accept that, I don't know how to do a 30 min interview lesson, especially on the odd-esoteric topic they gave me. Basically I'm annoyed... and I want to why I can't do this right... what's the trick?
