Let's Talk, Readers!
A new year, for many of us, signifies renewal or new projects. For me personally, I'll tackle organizing the garage and shedding some unwanted holiday pounds. AAEE bloggers would like to begin this bright new year with an invitation to you.
The American Association for Education in Employment has been partnering with Education Week Top School Jobs for over four years now, sharing thoughts about education careers and employment in the field. But rather than just writing about what we think interests you, we are hoping to engage in a meaningful exchange with Career Corner blog readers. We know that teachers, like the other many unemployed professionals, are facing tremendous challenges in their job searches. AAEE's most recent Educator Supply and Demand Report shows us that opportunities vary widely among teaching fields and regions, and even states within regions. Many are also encountering 'underemployment' or career stagnation. With Top School Jobs and AAEE as resources, you have access to seasoned school district human resource and university career center members from all over the U.S., ready to respond to your questions and share tips.
So -- what's on your mind?
