Nationwide Job Search Strategy for Teachers

  • Be sure to contact the Department of Education in the state you plan to teach in early to find out license/certification requirements for that state.
  • Schedule an appointment in Career Services for guidance with your job search plan, resume and to practice interviewing skills.
  • Complete your profile and career interest section in Handshake and upload your resume.
  • Attend UD's Education Interview Day held in the Spring semester.
  • Research and visit the location where you would like to teach.
  • Meet or reconnect with those you know who may be able to assist you with your future job search.
  • Look at LinkedIn and join University of Dayton groups.
  • Review the education job search listings.
  • Update your resume and always be ready to talk about your education background and teaching interest.
  • Buy a suit for interviews.
  • Establish references early to help with possible letters of recommendation or references.
  • Understand the teaching hiring process (May - beginning of a new school year). Do not panic when your non-education friends start getting job offers in the first semester.
  • Complete the Flyer First Destination Survey after accepting a position.
