    It is very simple. you just apply and they send you an email. If you do not respond to the email they call to follow up on your scheduling of the interview. For the interview you have to take a tb test, ID, and birth certificate or passport. IF you do not have your tb test, it is okay, you just have to get it before you go into the classroom, which will be about a month after the interview.

    The online application is lengthy and requires a lot of detail. Best to have past experience working with children either by some kind of volunteer work or community service. The application is pretty simple and straightforward, just answer honestly and make sure you sound ardent about what you do.

    Interview Questions

    • Straight forward questions about working with children and in a group with other member and what would you do in certain situation. Pretty much questions similar to what was asked in the online application.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Jumpstart (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Half an hour phone interview. The lady who interviewed me was extremely warm and friendly, and the process was not intimidating at all. Felt more like I was chatting with a friend, which was really nice. I had been asked to submit a long application form (that had many questions) before the phone interview, and she asked questions based on what I had written on my form. I was offered the position at the end of the phone call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Jumpstart.

    Interview

    First, I submitted a very detailed application and corresponding 'essay' type questions, which took a few hours to be able to really sit down and properly work through. The interview was one-on-one and very straightforward. The questions were aimed at gleaning information about your skills and strengths. This position is for college students who may not have much professional experience, but who likely might have had a chance to lead a group or volunteer.

    Interview Questions

    • No tough questions - just know your skill set and past experiences well so that you can explain how you would apply what you know to the position. Also, do some research into the position and perhaps the national discourse on education, reform, etc.   Answer Question
