    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Teach for America.

    Interview

    My interview experience with TFA was extremely positive. My interviewer was welcoming and sweet; I was so nervous going into the interview (especially since it was over Zoom), but she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. The TFA website does a great job outlining exactly how you need to prepare for the interview, so I definitely suggest reading through their material beforehand. The interview started out with a 5-minute lesson plan, then some personal interview questions (situational and behavioral), a 10-minute role play conversation, and then you get to listen to your interviewer tell their story about joining TFA. Overall, the interview was a really positive experience and there were so many resources to help me prepare! There were tons of interview prep sessions via Zoom and my recruiting manager was always following-up throughout the application process.
