A relatively simple, but highly effective way to close an interview is to ask for the teaching job. In the business world, the most significant factor that contributes to substandard performance in sales is not closing the sale, or in other words, not asking for the sale. The same principle applies to interviewing. In essence, you are selling yourself, your skills, and experience. Towards the end of the interview, briefly restate your desire to teach in the target school and outline 2-3 reasons why you are a qualified candidate. Finally, don’t forget to thank the interviewers for their time. Good luck!
