Tips & Recommendations for Inquiring or Interviewing for DOE Positions:

  1. Be prepared: Learn about the school you are applying to; every HIDOE school should have their own website. Be prepared to share why you want to work at that school and why you are interested in the available position.
  2. Be professional: All communication (phone, email) should use professional language. Use appropriate letter conventions (e.g., greeting, body, closing). For example, do not address administrators by their first name, especially if you have never met.
  3. Be mindful: Inquire for positions you really want. Do not set up interviews broadly, especially if you don't intend on accepting the position if offered.
