Designed for every senior in an education program, as well as those who seek to change careers into education, this book is truly the one-stop guide to getting a teaching job. The book takes the reader through the process of reviewing certification requirements and the job market, how to conduct a job search using local and Internet resources, and creating a dynamic cover letter and resume. Worksheets, sample cover letters, and resumes are included. Since one of the newest trends in teacher interviews is the use of behavior-based interviewing (BBI), readers are given sample questions and will learn how to answer questions that require them to share their past knowledge and skills. The materials presented in this book have been researched and hundreds of teacher candidates have used these techniques taught by the author in her classes and seminars.

This book is structured as a "beginner's guide" and is not for individuals that are already in the workforce. Even if you are fresh out of college and have never had a job, this book is rather juvenile. Don't waste your money...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
