Interviewing at Avenues
What We Commit to You
An interview process that's intentionally designed to yield a real sense of whether Avenues is a good fit for you, and vice versa. Clear communication about where you are in the process. Eagerness to answer your questions and help you get to know us. Close attention to making interviewing equitable and fair for everyone.
What We Ask of You
Reflect carefully on your own goals, passions and priorities. If that leads you to Avenues, please investigate us in depth, before and during your interviews. Bring your authentic self to each conversation, and be candid about your strengths and weaknesses. Communicate openly about your situation and timeline.
FIRST ROUND - INITIAL INTERVIEW
We invite successful applicants to an initial interview. This may be over Zoom, by phone, or via an asynchronous video interviewing platform.
SECOND ROUND - VIRTUAL TASK
We will send you instructions to share a sample of your past work and/or complete a task relevant to the position. After we receive it, we’ll meet via Zoom to discuss your submission and ask additional questions about your experiences.
The final round varies depending on the position, campus and your location. It typically includes a career history interview about your prior experience, meeting other team members, teaching a sample lesson (for teaching roles) and reference checks.
If you are successful, we will call you to share the details of our offer and answer your questions, and then follow up with an offer letter. All offers are contingent upon successful completion of reference and background checks and any necessary work authorization requirements.
