Craft a Recruitment Message

Where would you rather teach?

Your employment ad may be the first impression of your school as a potential employer. Often school job ads are dry lists of requirements with little information about why an applicant might want to work at the school and little that makes a particular job stand out. Print ads and internet listings are often limited in size because of cost or policy of the internet site leaving little room for a full job description.

Promising Strategies for Crafting an Effective Employment Ad:

  • Be sure to include links to your website where you can include a full job description;

  • Use your website to include other information about your school district that helps potential job seekers envision themselves teaching in your district;

  • Include some information in your job ad that indicates what the applicant will gain by working at your school.
