Since there was such an amazing response to my article on ATS teacher resumes and how it could affect your job search, I made a FREE template for you!
You can download your copy in our Store under FREE STUFF.
Make sure that your resume does not extend longer than 2 pages, use a standard font like Ariel and no more than TWO colours.
With regard to photos - the industry standard has updated recently since the #blacklivesmatter movement has come to the forefront around the world. Many recruiters have pledged to not include photos on resumes due to this being seen to support discriminatory hiring practices against #bipoc teachers within schools. At Staffroom we support equity in hiring practices, though be aware that many schools still expect to see a photo. We prefer to be the change we wish to see in the world and recommend that teachers be hired on their credentials, rather than their skin colour or ethnicity.
I really hope this helps you improve your resume so that you are able to be located inside the ATS and land an interview for your next teaching role!
Of course, if you are overwhelmed with everything that is going on right now, you can book a time with us and we will do it for you!
Stay healthy, stay safe x
