Traditionally, the candidate pool reflects the hiring demands of schools – ebbing and flowing in tandem. When COVID hit in 2020, we anticipated a major change in supply and demand as we'd historically known it.

To prepare, we surveyed our partner schools across the country to find out more about their current and upcoming hiring needs, and the factors most impacting their demand for teachers.

We also took a closer look at Selected's candidate pool growth, which has been rapidly increasing. Download the Mid-Year Report for Spring 2021 to find out more about this season's candidate pool.
