Job Hunting Hints & Tips

I'm in a certification program, what now?

Once you have passed your content exams, and are enrolled in a Texas certification program, you are considered "highly qualified" and can begin the process of applying for teaching jobs.

I'm highly qualified under NCLB, what now?

  1. Once you are highly qualified under NCLB, you are eligible for employment and can start looking for a job. Hiring is done through the district human resources office. Districts usually select candidates for a vacancy from applications already on file.
  2. Since each district may have a different process for applying for a teaching position in their district, check the district's web site where you'd be interested in working (Click here for a list of school district web sites and information).
  3. Apply, using the process prescribed by the school district; online application, mail in resume and cover letter, and any additional credentials that may be required at the time of the application.
  4. Check back often, and keep your resume updated.


In the case where there are no openings in your desired district, there are other avenues that you may take to build a network for future employment:

  1. Apply to become a substitute teacher
  2. Offer help with homework/tutoring students
  3. Volunteer for school mentoring programs
  4. Design & distribute business cards that introduce you as an educator; ie. contact information, certification areas of interest, etc. Carry them everywhere, at all times!
  5. Network, network, network!
