As we are still in the early stages of growing Wired Minds, we are constantly on the look-out for new employees who can help take us to the next level as a tutoring company. This extends to applicants of all abilities and experience levels. However, employment with us is a competitive process—and we never hire someone just to fill a need.
The Hiring Process
The hiring process is composed of three stages: (1) a written application; (2) a teaching audition; and (3) a final interview. The written application asks for the typical HR necessities as well as a few questions that help us get a feel for you as a person and as a teacher (e.g., “Discuss the most significant leadership role that you have held to date (whether at work, in school, or through an extra-curricular activity). How has holding this position shaped the person that you are today?”) Completion of the written application in no way guarantees advancement to the teaching audition.
At the audition, you will be asked to deliver two (2) prepared presentations: In the first, you will have a maximum of seven (7) minutes to teach us about something non-academic. We encourage creativity—you could talk about anything from how to do the dishes to how to fall in love. Immediately, following this talk you will deliver another presentation. In this phase, you will teach us an academic topic, as if you were hired at Wired Minds and as if your interviewers were your students. We expect you to choose a topic you are expert on—one that you hope to teach regularly at Wired Minds. The level (i.e., elementary, middle, high school, or college) should again be the same as the position for which you are applying. Plan to teach for up to 20 minutes. We typically cut off this phase after about 15 minutes.
If you make it to the final interview, congratulate yourself: We think an awful lot of you. You appear to have what it takes to teach at Wired Minds. However, as with the audition, admittance to the interview is no guarantee of employment. Nevertheless, we respect your time and do not routinely invite all applicants to this stage. The format of the interview is typically a panel discussion. Please bring your resume and any other supporting documents with you.
All the best,
The Management at Wired Minds
