Teacher Resumes for Career Changers

Teacher Resumes for Career Changers

Changing careers from the corporate world to teaching or administration can be one of the hardest things that a person does. You are going from what you know to something completely different, but switching careers can be extremely rewarding. Perhaps you have always wanted to be an educator, but continued on in business, receiving promotion after promotion, until you lost sight of your dream. But now you are ready to get back on track and follow through with your desired teaching career path. The first step is creating a teaching resume that highlights your education, relevant experience, and transferable skills. Your resume needs to look and sound like a teaching resume when it lands on someone’s desk or scanned by computer software. Many individuals from the business world enter a teaching position through the Alternate Route Program – they earn an Alternate Route Certification.
