This message is intended to help identify candidates earlier in the process that are a mission/culture fit, ultimately cutting down on the number of unnecessary phone screens. By using probing questions directly from your Phone Screen template, it's easier to isolate the teaching prospects who are capable of moving forward in your interview process, many times to an In-person Interview or Sample Lesson.


Hi <enter candidate’s name>!

I hope this message finds you well. I’m reaching out because <enter organization or school> has an opening for <enter job> and I think you’d be a really great fit! Before moving you forward in the interview process though, I’d love if you could answer the following questions, so I can best identify next steps for your candidacy:

1. Why are you interested in working for <enter organization or school>?

2. Why are you interested in working in <enter region/city of organization or school>?

3. In 2 -4 sentences, can you tell me about a time you had to receive a piece of critical feedback? What was the feedback you received and how did you deal with it?


<Enter your name>
<Enter your role>
