Getting The Job - Interview Questions and Preparationby Coach Matt Dennis
Whether you are interviewing for a coaching position or you are the one interviewing someone to be on your staff you need to be prepared. Coach Dennis has put together questions for high school level coaches and lower-level coaches to make sure you're prepared no matter what side of the table you are sitting on.
You're being interviewed:
Don't go in thinking you'll just wing it, you're guaranteed not to get the job doing it that way. Show the head coach and the hiring committee that you're the real deal and will do a great job once you're hired.
You're the interviewer:
You want the best candidate. The only way to know who you should hire is by knowing what questions to ask. You don't want to be left searching for a new coach next year or worse, searching for a new coach mid-season.
