You resume is your advertisement to employers where you are selling them your expertise, knowledge and potential for the advertised position. Here are a few things to consider when creating your professional teacher’s resume.
Before writing any information down, you must consider how your resume will be laid out. The information written must be organised and easy to read by the employer. A good rule of thumb for writing any resume is to have your full name and your contact information at the top, perhaps as a header. This will allow the reader to be able to easily identify your resume and contact you if they want to follow up on your application.
Most resumes present a very generic objective at the beginning. Rather than writing what everyone else writes, consider presenting some special qualities and attributes that stand you aside from the rest of the applicant field. A good objective should state what makes you suited for the job and projects you into the new role.
This is one of the selling points of a resume as your educational experience will be examined thoroughly by the employer. Include the details of your education and training, including relevance to the subject/s you are teaching and how long you have been teaching them. If you worked for a non-educational institution, include any relevant details in your resume, especially indicating skills that are transferable to an educational setting.
College degrees and educational attainment
This is the second factor of your resume which the employer will be focusing on. Include the relevant degrees, diplomas and certificates you have attained as well as any further training you have received. Include a brief explanation as to how the workshop or training experience can be of benefit to your new role.
