My Interview

I can't find the interview city I selected on my application/there are no interview locations near me.

Unfortunately, Teach For America isn't able to offer interviews in every area. We collect preferences on the application to get a sense of where applicants are able to interview, but as a non-profit with limited resources we are not always able to conduct interviews at all these locations.

If your preferred in-person interview location is not available, you can choose an alternate location, or opt to interview virtually, via webcam. Almost half of all Teach For America interviews are conducted virtually and virtual interviews are structured exactly the same as in-person interviews. Additionally, virtual interviews offer the advantage of a variety of times and do not require travel. Resources for both in-person and virtual interviews are available on the Interview Overview page including a detailed virtual interview overview.
