The phone interview lasts approximately 40 minutes. During the interview, be prepared to answer questions about classroom scenarios and share how you will apply your own professional skills in education-related settings. You are not expected to have any prior teaching experience or knowledge of the educational system in New York City.
All phone interviews take place on weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. If you are invited to the phone interview stage, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a time slot that works for you and your interviewer will call you at the number that you provide. If you are living internationally, be sure to provide your country code when submitting your application.
No specific preparation is required for our phone interview, other than to ensure that you have a quiet location and the time needed to receive and take the call. Our phone interview slots fill up quickly, so we encourage you to sign up for a slot as soon as you are invited.
If you are living abroad, please be sure to provide your country code when submitting your application. We are not currently able to call candidates via a web-services like Zoom or WhatsApp so you must provide us with an actual phone number.
Please note that some candidates may skip the phone interview and move directly to Selection Day if sufficient evidence has been collected through the review of their online application.
