Hi there,

What do you know about Mid-Valley High School? I have an interview there this week, and am having a difficult time finding 'real' information about it. ANY knowledge you have would be so much appreciated.

Thanks,
Deb

Thank you.

Now I'm trying to think of something to wear for the interview. I guess my bibs are out.

Don't want to look too casual...don't want to look too dressy. The teachers wear jeans. After a year of jeans, I've lost all perspective here.

I found the CEA office and inquired...seems to be happy teachers equaling happy students. I feel better :-)

Thanks again,
Deb

I would suggest erring on the side of overdressed rather than under. Being overdressed will never cost you a job, it will only reflect that you took the interview process seriously and that you were respectful of those interviewing you. Underdressing on the other hand is one of the top reasons to not get the job. Just because it's Alaska and everyone dresses down for the most part doesn't mean an interviewee should. Once you've signed for the job then by all means go ahead

Yes, thank you for the advice...

I am so old that I would never apply for anything without a lot of thought about the appropriate dress. The 'bibs' were just a joke

However, there is this school (forgive the pun) of thought: I've seen people ALL dolled up apply for a position, and be rejected because the interviewer realized the person was too 'dainty' for the position.

I have given particular thought to this as this is an alternative school...all have been expelled from their home schools.

Watch peace-loving Deb morph into Deb the inforcer

Well, it is tomorrow, and I hope to figure out if I truly want to do this 50-70 week this year or wait till next year. By tomorrow.

Thank you for the well-wishes and advice. Gotta fine tune the outfit. Gotta GO TO THE CONNEX!!!!!

Thanks,
Deb
