Educator Vacancy List Makes Job Search Easier

Looking for a teaching job in Illinois? Want a job search option that is effective and efficient? Now there is one place to go for teaching jobs -- the Illinois Education Job Bank at www.illinoiseducationjobbank.org/JobSearch/JobSearch.aspx.

The Illinois Education Job Bank is an interactive job vacancy list for teachers, administrators, school service personnel and non-certified school service personnel. By visiting the Job Bank, applicants can use this free resource to search by region, grade level and position for job opportunities in urban, suburban and rural districts throughout the state.

Of Illinois’ 894 pubic school districts, 97 percent are using the Job Bank to post openings. Each month more than 500,000 individuals and district personnel use this resource, which currently lists more than 900 positions in school districts statewide.

Applicants can submit resumes on-line for various locations and positions throughout the state. Once a resume is submitted, it is sent to districts that have matching vacancies. An e-mail message notifies individuals when a job matching their requirements is posted.

Once a resume is submitted, it will be sent to districts posting vacancies matching the particular criteria collaboration of the Illinois Association of School Administrators and the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois Education Job Bank benefits job seekers and school districts.

“With another school year approaching, districts face the task of finding intelligent, motivated and enthusiastic teachers to mold the futures of two million school children across the state,” said State Superintendent of Education Respicio Vazquez. “This is a one-stop shopping place for job seekers and school districts.”

“By subscribing to this on-line service, districts can post job listings that will be seen by potential applicants from across the country and view the resumes of prospective candidates,” said Illinois Association of School Administrators Executive Director Walt Warfield. “We are happy to be able to provide this valuable service.”

Districts control the information posted, as well as determine when and how long the information is available on the site. Subscription fees for both public and private schools are based on student enrollment.
