Interview for the post of music teacher for a private higher secondary schoolThis interview pertains to the post of music teacher in a private higher secondary school which is located in Delhi. Avinash is a music teacher in a higher secondary school in Bareilly and is looking for an opportunity to move to Delhi if some vacancy comes up for music teacher in some school there. He had done his Post graduation in Music from Saraswati Music College, New Delhi and as his parents were settled in Delhi, he was interested for a job in music line there. When he came to know about this position he immediately applied for the same and was called for interview and had reached the school at the scheduled time.
Avinash found that only four candidates were there in the fray and was naturally happy to see the limited competition for it. His name was second in the list and the interview started at 10:30 AM when the first candidate entered the interview cabin. About 20 minutes later the first candidate came out and Avinash was asked to go inside the cabin. As he entered the room he saw four people sitting across the centre table and seeing towards him. Avinash wished them good morning and Principal asked him to take his seat.
Principal: Avinash, you are already having a job in a reputed higher secondary school in Bareilly. How come you have applied for the same here?
Avinash: Sir, my parents are in Delhi and I wanted to move here if some opportunity comes in my way.
Principal: What are your main interests in music?
Avinash: Sir, I have many interests in the field of music but some which are related to the teaching to the students of class XI and XII like Hindustani vocal music, demonstration of Ragas and other such practical things.
Principal: Is there any particular part in the syllabus of higher secondary classes where you find some difficulty in teaching?
Avinash: Absolutely none, Sir. We have a private music teaching academy in Bareilly where I work as part time and we are holding private classes for the students/ people interested in a variety of music courses. I have attained good experience by working there and as such I have no problem in teaching the complete syllabus.
Principal: Ok, Avinash we are happy to interact with you and I have my last question to you that in case you are selected for this post then we would be asking you to join only after 3-4 months from now onwards and have you any reservation about that?
Avinah: No Sir, I do not mind any such proposition.
Principal: Alright Avinash, thanks.
Avinash: Thank you Sir.
Avinash leaves the room and meets the school official outside to tell him that interview is over and he would be leaving.
