I pride myself on my customer service skills and my ability to resolve potentially difficult situations. With five years of experience as a customer service associate, I have learned to effectively understand and resolve customer issues. On a related note, I also have strong communication skills, which help me work well with customers, team members, and executives. I am known for being an effective team member with a talent for giving presentations.
During an interview, you could try to skirt around the question with a broad answer, such as, “My salary expectations are in line with my experience and qualifications.” Or, “If this is the right job for me, I am sure we can come to an agreement on salary.” But the recruiter or interviewer will likely be looking for a number, so come prepared with a target salary figure, or at least a range, in mind.
I am interested in this job as a special education teacher because I value your school’s mission, which is to focus on the unique needs of the individual child. As a special education teacher for the past six years, I have developed strategies for achieving academic and personal success for children, and I look forward to bringing these strategies to your school. For example, I developed a system for staying in regular contact with the parents of my students so that I could problem-solve issues with them. I would like to bring this kind of communication tool to your school.
