You will then be directed to our online application center where you will be prompted to create an online profile and upload a copy of your most recent resume.

    Please note:

    • Excel does NOT accept applications via email or direct mail. The Excel recruitment team reviews all completed applications, and we make every effort to respond in a timely manner.
    • Please do NOT apply for multiple positions; choose one that best fits your background and area of interest. Should you be invited to participate in a phone interview, you will have the opportunity to indicate your interest in additional roles at that time.
  • 2. Phone Interview/Online Video Interview

    Depending on the role for which you’ve applied, selected applicants will be invited to participate in either a phone interview with a member of our talent team or an online video interview, the details for which will be shared with candidates via email.

  • 3. Phone Interview with Hiring Manager

    Applicants who make it to this stage of the interview process will be invited to participate in a second phone interview with the hiring manager for your particular role. 

  • 4. In-Person Interview & Live Model Lesson

    After the second phone interview, selected applicants will be invited to an in-person interview at the campus to which you have applied.  During your visit, you will have the opportunity to observe classroom instruction, speak with members of our staff, and conduct a 25-minute model lesson with our students using an objective we have provided. After the lesson, you will then have the opportunity to reflect with the hiring manager on your lesson as well as your time spent in the building.

  • 5. Reference Check

    On your online application, you will be asked to submit three references with whom you are comfortable having us speak regarding your past professional experience. A member of the recruitment team will notify you before contacting these individuals.
