Secure your dream job with OSBA’s new mock interview service


Ready to move up the administrative ladder to an executive position? OSBA can help you reach your goal with our new mock interview service.

Research indicates that lasting impressions are created during the first 10 seconds of meeting a person. We can help you form that strong first impression, then build on it by improving your interview skills to maximize your chances of getting the post you desire.

OSBA staff will conduct a customized mock interview, then share tips on how to improve your approach. The interviews, which can be conducted in person or through cloud videoconferencing, include the following:

-- Phone consultation with a lead executive search consultant
-- Sample questions
-- 30-minute mock session with trained interviewers, including previous superintendents and experienced administrators
-- 30-minute feedback, highlighting strengths and areas needing improvement
-- Video recording of mock interview

“If you are committed to improving your ability to prepare and interview for an executive position in educational administration, the OSBA Mock Interview Service is a professional development opportunity that is honestly transformational. It was the best sixty minute investment I have made in myself in my professional career.”
