The resume should be designed so that the most important information can be obtained with only a cursory scan. This is usually all the effort that your resume will initially receive. Only the most important information should be presented in your resume and it should be devoid of excessive verbiage. This makes it easier for the reader to obtain and remember the pertinent information. Work experience that is not related to the educational field should be summarized. This shows depth and breadth in your subject area. However, it should not be the main thrust. Your teaching and training experience should be the focus of your resume. You should also be sure to indicate your educational achievements including all honors and awards you have received. A teaching resume should be designed to reflect that you are well-established in your field and that you have the background and teaching experience that they may require. The purpose of the resume is to get your foot in the academic door. Thus, it is important that the resume be properly designed.
Now take a good look at the lists you have made. These are your qualifications. At least as far as what you can offer to an employer. You should take a little more time to go over the steps one or two more times and write down more accomplishments, skills and experience to improve this qualifications profile. Often, on the second time, and even third time, going through the exercise you will think of other things. Write them down as they come to you! Most people never take the time to look as closely at themselves from this angle as you just have. They think they are not good at anything. They think they are only average. I guarantee you have skills and accomplishments that I do not. You must get them out of your head, out of your history, and write them down. Only then will you really be able to see yourself. Only then will you truly understand your qualifications. Now, the next step is to use this qualifications profile to create a full-fledged resume. However, you have already taken that first and most important step. Now, it is a simple matter of taking the information you have listed and placing it into a proper resume format. That is the easy part.
Starting with the typical blank resume, a new teacher should focus on what they know best. That might be implementing new technology into the classroom. Since most jobs today require the use of a computer, this is something that looks great on every resume. Employees with this type of experience are typically passed to the front of the line since most likely the new graduate has the latest and greatest in computer training. They should feature this prominently in the first part of their resume. Another potential winner is training in mathematics or the sciences. This is one area of need that many school districts can't get enough of at this point in time. New teachers can use their co-op segment and any skills or courses learned in school to show experience in this area. It can prove useful for almost any specific area they wish to get into.
