During the phone interview, you will speak one-on-one with an interviewer who is a current New York City public school teacher. The interview will last for approximately 30 minutes. All phone interviews take place on weekday evenings. 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.
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 Skype, WhatsApp, etc. 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.
