How to Apply

APPLICATION PROCESS:

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and positions are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. We have three application deadlines throughout the year that indicate the likelihood that a candidate will be able to secure a position in Match Corps. The earlier candidates apply, the more likely they are to secure a position at Match in their ideal grade range. We will contact successful applicants for a phone screen and an on-site interview.

You may only apply to Match Corps or Match Teacher Residency one time per program year.

Please upload a resume on the Jobvite link. In lieu of a cover letter, we ask that you thoughtfully answer the short answer questions.
