After completing the online profiles, I was contacted by two Teachaway recruiters and a Footprints recruiter within a couple of days. The two Teachaway recruiters greenlighted me for phone interviews. The Footprints recruiter also greenlighted me, but never contacted me again.
I immersed myself in all things Teachaway to prepare for my phone interview.
My first phone interview was on December 10, 2015. All went well, and I was recommended for the in-person interviews. I was asked which city I wanted to interview in, and decided on Houston, which was only four hours away from me.
A few weeks later, the second Teachaway recruiter contacted me for a phone interview. That interview also went well, and I was recommended for a second interview. Conversely, this interview would be via Skype, as the position was for a private school in Abu Dhabi.
So, what started out as runs of a mill completed applications, had turned into potential job prospects.
