Hey y’all. Happy February! How do you feel about the first month of your year? Did you make some movement on your teacher job hunt or your general goal of becoming a teacher? If you’re an experienced teacher, how do you feel about your progression on your career goals?
I was busy in January, planning behind the scenes to get ready for a big 2014. Here are my updates on the work I’ve been doing to help you achieve your career goals.
1. Download a NEW resume building toolkit… for FREE. Being able to download a free excerpt was great and all, but you can do that on Amazon already. I decided that it was time to offer something new and that led to developing my new free toolkit, 5 Steps for Constructing Amazing Resume Bullets.
This toolkit contains advice that will help you write a great resume, including how to
- capture the important moments from your work history and performance record
- demonstrate skills wanted by principals, recruiters, and other hiring managers
- quantify your accomplishments
- refine your resume bullets and make them as specific to your experience; and
- make the process as fun and stress-free as possible.
It also contains excerpts from some of the sample teacher resume templates included in the book.
Download it for free today and don’t forget to let me know what you think!
2. Get Confessions of a Teacher Recruiter at every major book retailer. I’m happy to announce that you can now buy Confessions of a Teacher Recruiter: How to Create an Extraordinary Resume and Hook Your Dream Job at 6 major retailers… and directly from me!
Here is where you can now purchase your copy of the book.
Wherever you buy it, don’t forget to leave a review!
3. New book plans! I don’t have firm details yet… but it looks like I’ll be releasing an expanded version of our current book this spring, and also coming out with our second book in the series on interview tips! Stay tuned for more information.
4. Ask me to sponsor your teacher event. I had the amazing opportunity to be a sponsor of EdCampSavannah, an unconference for teachers looking to integrate technology into their practice. I participated in the conference by giving a small talk on the ins and outs of publishing your content.
And this was probably the best compliment I’ve ever received after presenting at an education event.
