What is the interview process like?

Candidates are usually required to participate in an initial pre-screen phone interview with a Placement Coordinator from Teach Away (for non-direct to school jobs) who will help you move forward with the application process. If you pass the pre-screen, you will move on to conduct an interview with a representative from the school that could occur over video or in-person.

For direct-to-school jobs, you will be reached out to by a representative from the school right away for a video, phone or in-person interview.

Our top tips for a phone or video interview:

  1. Set aside a time and place, and eliminate distractions (e.g. don't take the call on a bus!)
  2. Be prepared and take the call as seriously as an in-person interview
  3. Have quick access to key resources (e.g. notes prepared in advance)
  4. Listen and answer questions thoroughly
  5. Speak clearly and positively

For most positions, an in-person interview is not necessary. You can determine if an in-person interview session is required under the "Additional Requirements" section of a job description or during the pre-screen call with a Placement Coordinator.
