New York City Department of Education Office of Teacher Recruitment and Quality

The job application site for 2015-16 New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) job opportunities should be opened in mid-February 2015 or early March of 2015 and it will close in late June. Be sure to check  in mid-February 2015 or early March 2015 for information about the hiring process.  

Please note that if you started or completed an online teacher application previously but have not yet been hired, you will need to complete a new application in order to be considered for teaching opportunities for the 2015 spring term and the 2015-2016 school year. 

You will need to complete your NYCDOE  application  before the application site closes in late June if you have completed your certification requirements by that time or not.  We recommend completing your application as early as possible, ideally in March. 

Every eligible teacher candidate is ultimately responsible for his or her own job placement. However, once you complete an online application and it is successfully processed into the NYCDOE prospective teacher database called the New Teacher Finder you can register and attend job search online workshops through the TeachNYC Academy. In addition, you can always email or call HR Direct at 718-935-4000 with questions or concerns. You can also research NYCDOE schools by grade level, borough, or district via the NYCDOE website at and feel free to reach out to principals directly to ask about teaching opportunities at their school as there is no citywide vacancy listing and your job search with the NYCDOE will require your direct outreach with school principals.
