Teaching at the Eurocentre

Postby Lobelt » 11 May 2012, 21:36

Hello Everybody,

I was going to apply for a job as a teacher at the Eurocentre Taipei.
Does anyone know what kind of questions they are asking at the interview?

Thank you for your answers.

I've heard that at the Eurocentre interview they ask, "Do you have any experience?"

So be prepared for that one. :neutral:

And get ready for, "Can you tell me a little about yourself?"

Not sure if they'll ask you where the *Center of Europe is, but that's the first question I'd ask if I were doing the interviews.

My second question would be, "Where is the world's largest sculpture that's made of TV sets?"

Third question? What is Purnuškės famous for?

*And if anyone didn't say, "Lithuania", I'd shout, "NEXT!"

The Germans will say Germany.

The French will say France.

And do you honestly think the Brits will even admit to being a part of Europe?

Frankly, as an interviewer, I would ask the number of coloring pens you would need to draw the flag of *ENGLAND*.





FAIL if you didn't answer 2.

EDIT: or 1 if you were drawing it on a white piece of paper.

Eurocenter is owned by a French guy and is Franco-centric. If you interview with them just don't make any jokes about "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" and you'll be right.
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.
