Corps Member Interview Portland, OR

"What would cause you to drop out of the corps?"


Interview Answer

1 Answer


Don't answer anything in the area of "it being too difficult", etc. Safer answers stick to the neighborhood of being committed to the communities TFA serves/partners with and being resilient in the face of challenges. Be honest though- if you have some non-negotiables, express them. If an offer is not made then it likely would not have been a good match anyway. The questions are designed to "weed out" those who would either quit the corps, be miserable in the commitment or be poor teacher-leaders.
