Interview at the same school

    I have been working at my current school for 5 years and I have applied for a new position within the school. This position is one that I will have to interview for. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice about interviewing at the same school you currently work in - how should I treat the interview, is anything different in terms of questioning, will I be under extra scrutiny because I am already at the school?

    Any help is greatly appreciated as I am very unsure of the interview process in this situation.

    Thanks :)

    Basin advice is Pretend they dont know you.

    Dont think, Oh I dont need to tell them that, they know what I do.

    That's how you under sell yourself!

    And download via the free kindle app onto phone, tablet or PC this
    which colleagues find very helpful.

    As well as general interview preparation and advice, it has a section on internal interviews.

    Best wishes
