    I took this webinar back in September and October 2020. I didn’t have any sort of teaching job and wanted to get my foot in the door. With their 3 webinars I felt more prepared for interviews in terms of how to prepare for them and what to expect. I now have a OT position with a board, and was a lot more prepared for LTO interviews as well. They spent the time to explain information, and the Q&A sessions lasted more than an hour. The two were also reachable in email as well if you didn’t get a chance to ask your question. Great webinar series!

    I would highly recommend these webinars as a must for any teachers serious about finding work. You will learn how ” the system” works in the school boards and which interview strategies and type of preparation will help you succeed. I was particularly impressed by Jen and Dan’s generosity with their time and answering questions long after the webinar was due to finish – our enthusiasm was matched by theirs. Jen and Dan have a wealth of experience between them, Jen having an HR background and Dan an impressive Education CV including superintendent roles. The Get Hired series really does what it says on the tin and gives you the confidence and tools to obtain that coveted interview in the first place, and gain employment rather than ‘spin your wheels’ indefinitely. Well worth the reasonable fee charged for this excellent course.

    As a new teacher, I can genuinely say that this webinar series provided a lot of insight that you just can’t find online. Prior to my first interview, I thought I was prepared after finding a few interview questions that other teachers had posted in the past. But, boy was I wrong. This webinar series will provide you with the tips and tricks to TRULY be prepared for an interview. Also, the e-books are filled with valuable information that help you stay refreshed and confident for future interviews as well. I had several “aha!” moments throughout this series as to why my first interview was unsuccessful. This webinar definitely opened my eyes to new strategies and perspectives on how to respond to interview questions accurately. Furthermore, Jen and Dan are both so wonderful. They are very personable and create such a warm environment for the sessions. The sessions often went longer than scheduled (but that just goes to show how thorough and in-depth the sessions are). The Q&A time period went well over an hour sometimes! Jen and Dan took the time to carefully answer each question. I absolutely recommend this webinar series to new teachers trying to get their foot in the door, to experienced teachers that are trying to land a permanent position, and to teachers that are coming back from a break from teaching. This webinar series is relevant for all! 🙂

    The Get Hired Series is an excellent way to prepare yourself professionally for the interview process, especially if this is your first time going through it and unsure about the hiring process. Every board and experience can be different, and being able to speak with other going through the process and those who have experienced it already is a great way to get first hand experience and feel you have a support team to back you up! Through live feedback, question and answer, and the practical advice and tips Jen and Dan provide, the Get Hired Series will help you prepare to be your best self in the interview. I highly recommend this series.

  5. Heather

    I want to thank you for providing teachers with the information and tools for a successful interview.

    Thanks to your advice and conversations with others, I was confident and prepared for my interview and can tell you that it was my most successful interview ever! I am looking forward to my new role as a supply teacher closer to home.

  6. Tim

    I really appreciate the individual attention and insight that is being shared. There is a genuine concern for attendees and to facilitate an amelioration of their situation limited only by what is available.

  7. Laura

    I just wanted to thank you again, Jen and Dan, for putting on this webinar series! It was very informative and helpful. I feel that it helped boost my confidence back up after some hard times with not getting positions in the fall/winter. I am so glad I signed up for the series and felt it was extremely useful for the interview process.
