Taking the Big Leap
Are you considering leaving the classroom? This can be a tough decision for so many reasons! Here are a few of the best resources to help you in that decision!
A job coach can walk you through the entire process of your career change. For educators who have not been through this process in quite some time and may be overwhelmed, these resources may be for you.
Resume and Cover Letters
Resumes may be one of the most important parts in the job search process. This may be something you have not updated in quite some time and these resources are here to help.
Career Clarity is an essential part of your job search process, allowing you to have a CLEAR direction of where you are heading. By having clarity, you will identify your ultimate goal which will streamline and can often shorten your job search time! Check out these resources when starting your career change.
Teacher Pivot Courses
Are you unsure where to even start or how you can even do this? This section may be for you! These are very specific programs and classes for transitioning teachers that will guide you through the process.
LinkedIn A to Z
LinkedIn may be an incredibly foreign place for educators! Many educators have never used it and may not even realize the incredible value it brings to careers out of the class. LinkedIn is where you want to be as 98% of Fortune 500 companies are here to connect! Your profile will build you credibility and allow you to network directly with the decision makers.
Upskilling may be a new term for many coming out of the class, but it is simply adding knowledge, skills and competencies in order to help you advance or change careers. This can be achieved through workshops, webinars, certifications, courses and more. Have a plan in place so your upskilling is focused on your goals.
You have made it to an interview- Congratulations! This means your resume, networking, LinkedIn and job searching is working! Now, you need to nail that interview. Interviews give you the chance to be confident, show a positive attitude, and determine how well your soft and hard skills align to the position. Practice, Practice, Practice and be prepared with these great resources!
Know Your Finances
As educators, do you truly understand your finances? Do you know what to do with your pension or any investments you may currently have? Do you have any investments? What happens when you leave your current job? There are so many questions when it comes to finances. For some of us, this is a whole new area of our lives that needs to be considered and understood better.
Are you ready to find your dream job? Make sure you have clarity, a killer resume, an optimized LinkedIn profile and upskilled in any area that will benefit you. Use these resources to find your Dream Job!
Who to Follow
There are many voices and influences in social media who can help you along your way in your teacher pivot. Many offer advice and tips, so keep a pen, paper or an empty document ready while you are scrolling!
As educators we often put our students first. However, in order to run an effective classroom and avoid teacher burnout, we need to put our wellness first. These resources provide wellness and mental health support to alleviate teacher burnout.
I was someone who only knew that I needed to get out of the classroom but had no idea where to start. Out of the Class was just the thing I needed to energize my career transition. I was able to identify the areas I especially needed help with through their vast collection of resources. Out of the Class is incredibly helpful to work with; they recommended my career coach and it has made a world of difference. I approach transitioning not with fear but with an excitement about what is to come!
