Application and Interview Tidbits Recently, I had the opportunity to ask a member of the Headquarters recruiting team what one of the most common application mistakes or errors they see in application packets. 17 December 2012 – Weekly CYP Update| 3
  4. 4. Oddly, it is probably not the one you are thinking of right now. Typically, you think – TYPOS right. Has to bein the top three (3)? Which it probably is, but we didn’t get that far.Surprisingly, the first thing that popped up – wait for it…“did not reference the job announcement number”.Unfortunately, it is something relatively simple and it gets lost in translation, but it is huge and makes a colossaldifference in whether or not a potentially qualified candidate could make it on a cert list and whether aprospective hiring manager ever sees his or her resume.If Human Resource Staff are unable to match resumes and applications to specific job announcementsunfortunately the application packet goes no further than the inbox even if it was acknowledged that it wasreceived. Because, technically it was received – unfortunately, it has no where specifically to go beyond thatpoint and with multiple openings and sometimes up to a hundred application packets received daily it is notlikely that an individual candidate would ever know that his/her application was never attached to a specific jobannouncement.So, as you are working with prospective internal and external candidates please encourage them to referenceappropriately and follow-up when in doubt to ensure that their materials were received and attached to theappropriate position for which they applied. Sure would be awful to miss out on a great opportunity for atechnicality or simple error. Wow wouldn’t be crazy to accidentally put your name in for the wrongannouncement number and interview for something you never heard of before? Stranger things have happened!Let’s talk interviews. Those things can be killers right? Especially the 30 minute phone ones where you can’tsee the people on the other side and they round robin the questions, the phone cuts out and you hear every thirdword, and they want you to describe something. Well, yes. You are right. They are tough. They are tough toparticipate in and they are tough to facilitate, but they don’t really have to be as hard as you make them. Coupleof things to think about when conducting and participating in the interviews: 1. BREATH. Take a moment to gather your thoughts. It is okay to clarify the question that is asked of you or to reframe the question if you need a bit more information. It is okay to acknowledge you are a little bit nervous and to take a moment to gather your thoughts; not every answer ties back to every job. Take a moment to choose the best fit experience for the question presented. It’s not one size fits all. 2. LISTEN. Make sure you listen to the question and the answers and ask follow-up and clarifying questions where applicable. Don’t give the text book check list or a do-it-yourself 5 step response. Tell the interview what you did, what your outcomes were, and use specifics where appropriate (specifics = $, total participants, inventory, outcomes, lessons learned). Trust me on this…chances are the interviewer(s) already know the “how to” and they “REALLY” want to know about your accomplishments and achievements, lessons learned, level of leadership responsibility, etc.!See, that’s not so hard. Honestly, you want to highlight real work examples of what you have achieved in yourpersonal work experience. Some things are going to be in your current positions and others you may pull fromvolunteer or community activism, student teaching or practicum experiences, other professional work history, ormay not have had the opportunity to perform and those are all ok. Just relax. Ask clarifying questions and don’ttalk in circles you’ll do fine. Everyone gets nervous. It all works out!

  5. 5. CHILD & YOUTH EDUCATION SERVICES (CYES) NRMA School Recognize Military Kids! AlantonHallway of Stars- this year at Alanton each studenthonored a member of our military forces by writing thename of the member on a yellow star and then decoratingthe star. The military member could be a family memberor a friend of the family. Of course every classroom in ourbuilding has military families along with lots of our facultymembers- each child realized that everyone in our buildinghas this connection! This activity allowed our school tosee the strong connection of military members (both pastand present) to every individual at Alanton! It wasamazing to hear the student and teacher comments as theymoved through the hallway- it made an amazing impact oneach of us in the building! Navy families are fortunate tohave professional educators like Mary Knutter supporting our kids!IMPACT Aid Brochure: The attached Impact Aid that was produced by the US Department of Education. EDwas gracious enough to make a few changes to make it applicable for general distribution and send it to me.This brochure is great for command briefs, parent information and LEA distribution.

They are the major pillars of the education of present and future members ofthe Sea Services. The Navy League is a major force behind this effort, known as STEM.What began as a technology-based training initiative has evolved into a major effort for our Navy Leaguemembers and supporters. STEM programs are underway across the country; many of our local Navy Leaguemembers have volunteered for these programs and put their expertise to work in the service of developing thenext generation of leaders.One such STEM initiative, SeaPerch, is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers andstudents with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-schoolor out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts,following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme.The Navy League Sea Perch program, along with other STEM projects led by Navy League volunteers, supportscreativity, assembly, execution and teamwork - skills that ultimately find their way into the careeraccomplishments of members of the Sea Services. But these critical skills cannot thrive without the financialsupport from thousands who believe in the continued strengthening of our military and the importance of thefreedom of the seas. SLO’s should contact their local Navy League chapter to see how they can help! 17 December 2012 – Weekly CYP Update| 5
  6. 6. American Federation of Teachers (AFT) announcing a report, “Raising the Bar—Aligning and ElevatingTeacher Preparation and the Teaching Profession,” issued by the AFT Teacher Preparation Task Force. Thereport calls for teachers to meet a universal and rigorous bar that gauges mastery of subject-matter knowledge,much like the bar exam lawyers must take before they can enter the legal profession, and demonstratescompetency in how to teach. Further, the report urges a systemic approach to preparing teachers and a morerigorous threshold to ensure that every teacher is ready to teach. The report now goes to the AFT executivecouncil for approval at its February meeting. View the report at:http://www.aft.org/pdfs/highered/raisingthebar2012.pdf.
