Are there restrictions on interview questions?
Each Spark Hire interview question comes with three criteria:
Amplify currently provides applicants with unlimited Think Time and Takes. That means you can spend as much time preparing for a question as you want and rerecord your answers until you are satisfied with your response.
Example: “I believe I am a strong communicator with both students and teachers. In my previous role, I was responsible for communicating the curriculum changes to all of our teachers, which required me to be very clear and concise when explaining new concepts. I also had to communicate frequently with parents and guardians regarding their child’s progress and achievements. I find that I am quite good at breaking down complex ideas into simple language.”
Asking the right questions during an interview is key to getting the job you want. But what if you don’t know what questions to ask?
Example: “I’m hoping to have my own educational technology company within five years. I’ve been working on developing an idea for a while now, and I think that Amplify Education would be a great place to start. The curriculum and assessment tools are top-notch, and I’d love to work here until I can launch my own business.”
Example: “I’ve used several different testing platforms in my career, but I find Amplify Education’s application to be one of the most user-friendly. The interface is easy to navigate, which makes it simple for students to complete assessments on their own. Teachers can also use the system to create customized tests and quizzes, which helps them assess student progress and determine what areas they need to focus on.”
Example: “I think one thing we could improve upon is our communication with parents. I know that Amplify has some great resources for teachers, but I’ve noticed that sometimes parents don’t hear about them as much as they should. I would love to see more opportunities for parent engagement so that everyone feels like they’re part of the education process.”
Should I be worried about the quality of my video?
Like any interview, our Spark Hire interviews are intended to help us learn about your experience and potential fit within the Amplify culture. While we do recommend being conscious of your recording space – such as recording in a messy or dark room – our team will never use your internet connection or webcam quality as a determining factor in your application.
