Description

Hunter College School of Education Career, Professional and Partnership Development invites you to attend The Teacher Job Search Bootcamp provided by Selected (a free online matching platform that helps teachers find jobs and schools they love).

Selected's Job Search Bootcamp is a free 2-day intensive to help aspiring and current teachers prepare and succeed during the job search and interview process. These workshops are modular — attend any sessions that are helpful. All teachers are welcome!

Selected works with 800+ school recruitment teams and 15,000+ candidates. We distilled all the insights and feedback from our conversations about who gets hired and who doesn't. We present our findings during the practical workshops below. Join us.


Schedule:

DAY 1 Tuesday, January 15, 2019 (4:00 to 7:00 pm)

Interview Process 101 (4:00 to 5:15 pm)
Understand the schools' perspective — goals, constraints, and when and how they hire. Use these insights to adapt your job search strategy. Review all the major rounds in the interview process so that you can be prepared to succeed at each step.

Sample topics: Teacher Interview Process Overview. Public vs. Private School Hiring Seasons: When To Look For a New Job, phone screen, types of questions to expect and why


Ace the Teacher Demo Lesson (5:30pm - 6:45pm)
The Demo Lesson is arguably the most challenging and important round in the interview process. Learn what hiring managers are looking for, what to expect, and how to excel — especially if you have limited teaching experience. Please bring a sample lesson (preferably standalone) that we can review.

Sample topics: Acing the Demo Lesson, Build Authority through Non-Verbal Commuication, Improve Student Behavior Without Shame or Punishment


Day 2 — Wednesday, January 16, 2019 (4:00 to 7:00 pm)

Revamp Your Resume (4:00 to 5:15 pm)
Learn what recruiters and hiring managers are looking for in top resumes. Get tips to have your resume stand out and avoid common mistakes that will automatically get you disqualified. We will review actual resumes during this session so bring your most recent resume!

Resource: If you can't make this session, you can get your resume reviewed for free here on Selected.


Finding Your School Fit (5:30 to 6:45 pm)
Finding the right environment, including mutual fit on culture, values, and pedagogy, is one of the most important decisions you can make for your long-term career growth. We provide prompts for self-reflection and give you tips on what you should be interviewing the school on — questions to gain insight (before you join, not after) into the school's actual culture, quality of leadership, pedagogical flexibility, and red flags.

Sample topics: Is This School Right For Me?, Find Your Ideal School, Negotiating Your Job Offer
