Where can my friend search to find teaching jobs in Austin, Texas?

By | August 17, 2015

I have a friend who is looking to move, and he wants to teach. He is certified and has an education degree, and is looking for jobs in Austin, Texas, but doesn’t know where to look. Should he contact schools directly, or is there an online registry? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

    I’d say look up the city’s school board website. There’s usually job postings on the their site.

    Have him check on yahoo jobs. If nothing there look on yahoo yellow pages for schools and have him call there.

    Apart from major job websites like Monster, Hotjobs and Careerbuilder where your friend could apply for jobs and post his resume online,he could also search for jobs on websites like Craigslist, Simply Hired and Indeed. Check this out for more information

    You should look into Austin ISD, then go to Human Resources. Also find out the schools around the neighborhood and go directly to there websites.

    Good Luck

    Yes, there are online registries, but most of them are national. He could also check out local school district web sites and he might find a few job postings.

    BUT the best way to do it is to call the schools directly. Many districts don’t advertise all available positions. If they have many candidates’ paperwork on file, oftentimes they don’t advertise openings at all.

    If he calls the schools directly he can ask if there are any openings. Also, if possible, he should send a letter of interest directly to the principals of schools in addition to human resources.

    There’s a helpful eBook about finding teaching jobs– http://www.iwantateachingjob.com . It has information about applying for teaching jobs, finding jobs, interview tips, etc.

    Good luck.
