Hello Busy Educator,
Keywords to Include in a Killer Teaching Resume
We all know that a resume should be geared towards its specific industry. While people belonging to management positions have a lot of keywords to add, teachers are usually seen with bland resumes. However, if you sprinkle your CV with the right keywords, you can add the much-needed spice to make it look more attractive. Here are some of the keywords you should use:
Coached the girls’ basketball team and secured the second position in 2015 state championship.
Acted as a mentor to a graduation student and helped him with time management issues
Organized school level debates and quiz competitions throughout my time at National College of Science
Advised students in compiling, publication, and distribution of the school yearbook
Trained the staff to use the latest computerized system
Presented a paper on importance of mathematical theories in real life at Global Mathematics Association Conference 2015
Founded the student-teacher cooperation group in 2014
With these keywords, you will be able to grab the attention of the HR team. If you read some inspiring stories of teachers, you’ll find several other keywords that you can more accurately use on your resume. These words will help you resume stand out and increase your chances of being called.
Whatever keywords you use, make sure they reflect these core skills.
Written and oral communication skills
The keywords we’ve mentioned above show that you know how to use words to convey what you’re offering. A strong vocabulary shows off your skills as a teacher.
During your interview, make sure you demonstrate your problem-solving skills. There is a common myth that teachers don’t have problem-solving talent. You can mention in your resume that you have these skills and can handle unexpected situations.
Deadline oriented skills
Mention in your resume that you have the ability to meet deadlines. This can include the number of lessons to be prepared in a day, submitting lesson plans, completing progress reports, and grading.
That’s it for now Busy Educator.
