Are you looking for your first teaching job? Or are you further along in your career—looking for an administrator job or a position at a university? You’ll want to visit the KDP Career Center often. The KDP Career Center has everything you need; KDP Global’s Job Search Academy will support you through your search with discussions, blogs, and events each month as well as copies of everything you see in the KDP Career Center (click the Library and then Switch to Folder View).
This may be the first time you’ve had to create a résumé or you may be creating one for an entirely different type of position. That section has a variety of samples to view as well as detailed instructions. Letters are not difficult when you design them with the research you did on the school in mind and match them to your individualized personal profile at the top of your résumé. Examples that coordinate with the résumés are provided. If you are applying for an administrator position or college faculty position, you’ll need to compile a curriculum vitae (CV). Learn how; then, view some samples.
If you wonder what to put in your portfolio or if you need an online ePortfolio, that section will be helpful to you. You’ll learn about different types of portfolios, see samples, and get links to create your own ePortfolio. Get the Plus version of ViewYou for only $12 a year too!
