Thank You! 

Here's What To Do Next...

Thank you for requesting the 52 Practice Interview Questions for School Administrators!

Check your email in about 5 minutes for the PDF download link, but in the meantime, read on for important next steps.

Here's how to use the 52 questions to prepare for ed leadership interviews:

  1. Print them out—yes, on paper! 
  2. Write out bullet-point answers to each question
  3. Practice on video—or at least with a timer—and make sure you can speak for 4-5 minutes on each of them. 
  4. Identify 8-10 stories you can use in response to "Tell us about a time when you..." questions, or just to make your answers more compelling.

If you don't have an interview coming up, read on for the biggest possible shortcut...
