What you wear is also very important. I always wear a dress suit or dress pants with a blazer and a bright solid color dress shirt under my jacket. I pick a bright solid color because I want the interviewers to remember me. Also, I always wear comfortable shoes. To me, comfortable shoes are a must. I want to feel comfortable and relaxed during the interview.
* Your passion for counseling can set you apart from others. Talk about the parts of the job that you LOVE. Always answer with your students interests at heart. If you do this, they will see your passion for kids.
* It is important for you to completely explain your knowledge of counseling and what it should look like in a school setting. I would have a few new and innovative ideas to share which them, maybe about programs or lessons you want to implement.
* It is so important to show off your personality. It is important to answer the questions honestly and professionally, but your personality needs to shine through.
When interviewing with a private and/or Christian school, be prepared to talk about what counseling will look like in a setting different from a public school. Be prepared to answer the question: "Why did you want to become a counselor?"
This question will mostly likely be asked. Before I went on my first interview, I googled questions asked in school counseling interviews. I brainstormed answers to those questions. When I went in for my interview, it was like they were reading off the list I had looked at. I would suggest doing that to prepare for the questions they might ask.
