The hiring season will be upon us before you know it and it’s never to early to get started. Often we hear that applicants miss opportunities because they weren’t prepared. It is to your benefit to make sure you have all of our information and documents together BEFORE the hiring season begins.
What should you gather?
- Transcripts–for most districts you will not need Official transcripts for your application but you will need copies of your Unofficial transcripts. Order them now. You can update them later as needed. (Note: you will need ALL transcripts)
- Letters of Reference–most districts request 3 letters of reference for teaching applicants. Give your letter writers plenty of time. They’ll thank you later.
- Resume–you don’t necessarily need a professional resume for all of your applications but it is a good to at the very least have all the information gathered. That way when the time comes to complete your online application you have everything at your fingertips.
- EdZapp Application–UPDATE IT NOW!!! Now is the time to look over what you have previously entered and make edits. If you can’t remember your login click on “Having Trouble Logging In” to retrieve your information. BE COMPLETE!!
The more you have done prior to the hiring season the better. Won’t it be nice to just have to search and apply to jobs rather than rush around trying to meet a deadline?
