Selected is dedicated to connecting schools with the most relevant, committed, and diverse teachers.

New Features

  • Resume preview (beta): preview a candidate’s resume before deciding to connect with them. In addition, every profile and resume has been tailored and standardized for teachers.
Goal: empower schools to make the most informed decision about an educator's candidacy before sending a message or invite
  • Free text message outreach: candidates receive a text notification when you send your first message or invitation – all done automatically and for free. This is in addition to the standard e-mail a candidate receives when contacted.
Goal: to improve speed and rate of responsiveness from candidates – and thus increase the throughput of our school partners.
  • Clear certification and content specialty data: view content specialty tied specifically with certification. We specifically restructured the way we collect data from candidates to provide greater clarity.
Goal: improve discovery of educators based on certification and subject expertise
  • Expanded search and filtering: more specific single subjects (e.g., Pre-Algebra, U.S. History), grade levels (e.g., search for a single grade level), and instructional skills (e.g, Project-Based Learning, Montessori, Responsive Classrooms)
Goal: improve discovery of educators based on subjects, certification, and instructional skills
  • Message template: no more copy and pasting your outreach message.
Goal: standardize school's outreach process and save time
  • Refreshed UX: we will be rolling out additional refinements both visually and functionally. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have building it.
