Preparing For Your teachNOLA Certified Recorded Interview

We conduct interviews using a unique new process called recorded video interviews. The easy-to-use online system gives you the opportunity to record your responses to interview questions that help further showcase your skills and passion for teaching. Through our flexible interview process you can submit your interview at any time, day or night, when it is most convenient for you. No scheduling is required!


1. What to Expect

Check out the below 5-minute video which shows exactly what to expect when you log onto the online video system. This is a fun and easy interview process, we know you'll do great!


2. Choose a Quiet Location

Choose a quiet location, free of distractions to record your interview. Have a pen and paper available to take notes and make sure you have reliable internet access.

3. Practice

In the online interview system, before you begin the interview, you will have the opportunity to record a response to a practice question. You can review your practice question response and re-record several times. Take all the time you need here so you feel confident using the system!

4. Take the Interview

Once you're comfortable with the recording function, you are ready to complete your interview! We recommend setting aside about 30 minutes to answer the 5 interview questions. After each question is asked, you will have 30 seconds to think about your response, then 2 minutes to record your response. To simulate a live interview, you will have one chance to respond to each question. 

If you encounter any technical issues with your recordings, don’t worry! We have a 24/7 tech support team ready to assist you, and you will be able to re-record your response if needed. Contact tech support by clicking “Send us a message” at the bottom of your interview screen. 

We enroll on a rolling basis, so the sooner you submit the greater your chances. We recommend submitting your interview within seven days, but we can make accommodations, simply email us at

After you submit your interview, our expert selection team will review it and we will email you within 2-3 weeks with a status update.  

Good luck and have fun!
