FAQs

May I apply to more than one position?

For instructional positions, you only need to complete one application. You will be considered for all instructional positions with that application and will have the chance to denote your grade level, subject, and location preferences on the application. For all other roles, please apply to all positions for which you wish to be considered.

Can I email/fax/mail/bring my resume to you?

We do not accept resumes via email, fax, or mail. Please apply online and upload your resume here.

Do you sponsor H1B and other work visas?

The decision to sponsor a work visa is made on a case-by-case basis.

I am receiving an error message when trying to submit my online application. What’s wrong?

The error message is most likely associated with one of the following issues:

  • Your resume and attachments exceed 4MB. Please ensure all attachments combined are no larger than 4MB.
  • The server may have timed out while you were working. To prevent this, complete the application in one sitting and ensure your internet connection does not disconnect.
  • Your web browser may not be supported by the online system. Try switching to a different browser and/or updating your current one.
  • Your email address is already in the system. If you have created an application for the 2017-18 school year, you cannot create a new one. To update your current application or apply for additional jobs, use the "I already have an account" button on the application.
If I see a new position posted that interests me, do I have to reapply?

You do not need to submit a new application for each position; however, you should add the new school or subject to your application in order to be considered. To do this, login to your account (use your same username and password) and update your preferences.

How do I know if you received my application?

You should have received an automatic e-mail (sent from noreply@salesforce.com) letting you know we received your application. Check your spam folder for this e-mail if it does not appear in your inbox. If you did not receive this e-mail, we do not have your application.

If I was not invited to continue the selection process, may I apply again or for other positions?

You can only apply for instructional positions once each school year. All applications remain on file to be considered later in the year as other instructional positions become available. You can apply to as many support staff and regional positions as you would like.

I saw a position listed on another website, but don’t see it here. Is this position still open?

Any positions listed on www.kipphouston.org are still open. We update this site daily. If a position is no longer listed on our site, then it is no longer available. Please refer to our site when applying or checking our current vacancies.

Can you tell me why I was not chosen to continue the selection process?

Due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to provide feedback on applications, resumes, phone interviews, or in-person interviews.

I have already submitted my application online. What else can I do?

We ask that you not contact our schools directly and allow us to first review your application. The recruiting team completes an initial application and phone screen. If you would like the chance to meet with recruiters and leaders, check out our events calendar to see where you can meet up with us!
