K-12 education industry experts to share virtual job search and interviewing tips

Virtual interviewing today can lead Redbirds to career success tomorrow.

After a busy year of learning yesterday and virtual interviewing today, Redbirds find opportunities for tomorrow!

Job searching and interviewing continue during this unusual time, including those who want to work with children in the K-12 education industry.

To assist EdBirds and those who desire to work in school districts, Career Services is hosting ABC’s of Virtual Job Searching and Interviewing for K-12 Careers via Zoom on Tuesday, June 2. Attendees will learn from Executive Director for the American Association for Employment in Education Tim Neubert and Coordinator of Talent Acquisition and Retention for Aurora Public Schools (in Colorado) Robert Maxson.

“I had inquiries from May graduates concerned that school districts may not be hiring. They are! I continue to receive emails from school districts who have positions that need to be filled for the 2020-21 academic school year,” states Renee Carrigan, Career Services career advisor. “Due to COVID-19 candidates just need to lean on more virtual options for the job search and networking. Candidates also need to be aware that the interviewing process is also looking different during this time.”

The session runs from 12 to 1 p.m. Registration for ABC’s of Virtual Job Searching and Interviewing for K-12 Careers is required to attend live or to receive a recording of the presentation.

Prior to his role with AAEE, Neubert served nearly 20 years in human resources roles for PK-12 school districts in Illinois. He then held a leadership role with Frontline Education’s product management team, focusing on applicant tracking and other K-12 HR software solutions. Maxson has over 25 years of human resources experience, including Fulton County Schools (Atlanta, GA), the Georgia Department of Education, Georgia’s Teacher Licensing Authority- the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, and Georgia State University.  In addition, Maxson has published several white papers about educator talent acquisition, including The Principals of Interviewing and Going Guerilla-Job Search Strategies Off the Beaten Path.
