We’ve all seen resume templates; we’ve even heard of them, but most of us have no idea what they are or how to create one ourselves. This article will be your crash course in creating a resume.
Job seekers are often confused about how to put together a resume for a person wanting to be a teacher. The simple fact is that the requirements for being a teacher aren’t the same as for a job opening as a waitress or a bus driver. One of the biggest differences is that teachers must get a license before becoming one.
When applying for a job, you’re required to disclose certain terms such as your address, occupation, and area of specialization. In most cases, this can be included on your resume. However, there are other details that are often omitted or not covered at all.
Most employers aren’t going to ask about your experience on certain job application forms, such as the LSAT or college application. They want a description of what you do as opposed to what you studied. You will also be asked what level of education you have completed. You should list this on your resume along with the necessary contact information.
If you have any teaching experience, this should be listed somewhere on your resume. You might not have a reason to put it on your cover letter, but it would be difficult to explain a teaching experience during the interview if you don’t include it.
When you submit your resume, it’s customary to attach a cover letter to the end. If you haven’t done so already, you should consider creating one.
When it comes to writing a cover letter for an individual who is applying for a position as a “beginning teacher”, you should take a different approach. In this type of job, the employer will likely be interested in learning more about you before hiring you. As such, your resume should focus on the information listed on your experience page.
You want to focus on what you would be able to bring to the table as a “beginning teacher”. You should be prepared to discuss both your history as a student, and your background in the subject matter you’ll be teaching.
