Join Our Team

Big Picture schools have a selective recruitment process because we expect advisors and staff to make dramatic, measurable gains not just in student achievement, but in students lives. The challenges that today’s young adults face are enormous and very personal -- so while we educate all students, we focus on one student at time. And that’s why we seek candidates whose abilities, mindsets, and experiences match our Nine Hiring Principles, which include:
  • Abilities
    • Strong instructional leadership and/or team management skills
    • The ability to build deep relationships with students and colleagues
    • The ability to lead, influence, and motivate others
  • Mindsets
    • A belief that students should be at the center of their own learning
    • The expectation that all students will be prepared for post-secondary mobility, including living wage employment and/or continuing education
    • Strong personal and professional convictions 
  • Experiences
    • The pursuit of a variety of interests beyond education
    • A track record of resourcefulness and being solution-oriented
    • Demonstrated ambition and longevity in personal and professional pursuits
