Select Recruits Early Hiring Program

The Bronx is a great place to teach, and you can bring your talents and passion to students in Bronx communities starting in September 2017. The Select Recruits Early Hiring Program offers outstanding candidates the opportunity to visit Bronx schools and connect with principals at various events beginning in February and throughout the winter and spring. Select Recruits can accept job offers from Bronx principals for the 2017-18 school year as early as March 1, more than four months before most hiring occurs in New York City.
