    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at New York City Department of Education in August 2014.

    The whole hiring process was very streamlined. Emailed a resume and a cover letter on a Thursday afternoon, and received a response to come in for an initial interview the following Monday. The initial interview took about 20 minutes, and they invited me to do a demo lesson the following Wednesday. Many applicants came in on Wednesday, making the whole interview process get behind schedule. The demo lesson itself went great, and most observant enjoyed the lesson.
