Obtaining a Teaching Job

During the full-time student teaching seminar, all Education students receive instruction and practice with regard to job applications, resumes, cover letters, interviewing, job fairs, and accessing local, national, and international job listings. Guest speakers—including the Director of the Office for Career Development, school administrators, and practicing teachers—enhance students’ job-seeking skills. Assignments include: writing a resume and cover letter, completing Oregon’s job application (SchoolSpring), writing and critiquing answers for interview questions, and participating in mock interviews with local school administrators.
