What is Selected

  • Selected is the teacher outreach and hiring platform trusted by over 1,500 PK-12 public and private schools since 2016. Our mission is to ensure schools have access to diverse, qualified, and relevant teachers for less.

    Our platform was specifically designed to simplify teacher sourcing for PK-12 schools:
  • Pre-vetted, diverse, and relevant candidate pool refreshed daily: you only see active candidates already interested in attributes of your school, including type, grade levels, and location.
  • Targeted outreach that works: message matching candidates directly or post a job* that automatically markets your open roles and school to best fit candidates.
  • * Job posts not included in All Access Week

Why schools choose Selected

KIPP Bay Area

Quality hires, fast

"Selected is a must! We made our first hire within weeks of signing up. Every time I log in, I find a new batch of candidates ready for engagement. Each profile is succinct and clear. One click to get connected, most candidates respond within minutes! The staff at Selected is super responsive."

- Director of Talent, KIPP Bay Area (CA)

Warm, active leads

"I know that candidates are opting into the system and are interested in receiving outreach (which isn't necessarily the case on other platforms, like LinkedIn) and have gone through the system's matching process to be identified as a preliminary fit with our school, so even initial messages I send don't feel like cold or unwanted outreach. Best of all, I am seeing candidates that I wouldn't normally see."

- Director of Talent, Citizens of the World (Los Angeles)

Stressless sourcing

"We found the candidates Selected had available to be qualified, mission aligned, and smart. Further, the smart and easy to use filters on the platform made going through candidates easy for my team and eliminated a lot of the complexity and stress from the process."

- Founding Principal, NYC Charter School of the Arts

Large candidate pool

"In the past, we used Indeed, recruiting firms, teaching fellowship programs, and our online application system to find candidates. But Selected has helped us develop a much bigger pool of pre-screened, experienced, certified teachers than we ever have before.”

- Director of Data, Haven Academy (Bronx, NY)
Learning Community Charter School


"Selected has saved our lives. It really has. 4 of our biggest rockstars came from Selected. We have brought in outstanding people from Selected — and what’s even better, the quality of applicants is improving."

- Head of School, Learning Community Charter (Jersey City, NJ)

Streamlined workflow

"Selected/Greenhouse integration streamlines communication with candidates and cuts down on the back and forth between connecting with them and moving them through the hiring application process. It saves countless hours on the time I have to take to cultivate candidates!”

- Director of Recruitment, Coney Island Prep (Brooklyn, NY)
