It is true that there is always a need for a teacher in some parts of the country. However, keeping abreast with such vacancies is not easy. Just like any other occupation, finding a proper teaching job vacancy requires tact and patience. Here are three sure tips that will undoubtedly ensure you are always the first to know about available teaching jobs.
1. Build a network
Friends, relatives, and acquaintances are always the best source of knowledge about vacancies. Let them know you are searching for a teaching position. Provide your areas of specialisation and contact numbers. In case they hear of any vacancy, you will be the first in their minds. You can also share in your social media timeline. The more the people who know what you are offering, the more the ears you have out there.
2. Accept alternative teaching options
In many cases, people become discouraged when a less paying teaching option is offered such as part-time. Accept the offer if you desire to teach in that school full-time in the future. When a vacancy arises in your line of interest you will be the first to learn about it. And like in many schools, you will receive first consideration.
3. Network with HRs
Visiting human resource offices to ask if there are vacancies can be discouraging and so very few take that path. Personally visiting these offices sets you apart as a serious person. Request to leave your resume in case a vacancy comes up. If possible, obtain the office numbers and call once in a while to ask if there are new vacancies.
For quick results, employ all these three tips in your search. They will ensure you remain up to date with all available teaching jobs in your area of specialisation. All that remains is working on your resume, personality, and quality.
