Find a Job

Start your career

You have the experience, but now you need to invest time and energy into marketing yourself as an asset to future employers. You need more than just a resume and experience—you must be able to sell yourself. Know your audience, tell your story, and underscore your accomplishments.

Schedule a career coaching appointment with us in Handshake to review your application materials, job search strategies, and even do a mock interview to practice your pitch. Here are additional suggestions:

  • Review our Career Connections Job Search Guide.
  • Enroll in M202 Job Search Strategies to receive college credit for preparing for the job search, as well as a copy of the American Association for Employment in Education Job Search Handbook.
  • If you are a CASS major, counseling graduate student, or just interested in work outside the classroom, attend our fall Counseling Fair.
  • All students are welcome to attend our fall Student Teaching Fair to network with our key P-12 partner school districts.
  • If you plan to teach, attend our spring Interview Day.
  • Create a LinkedIn account to help network with others professionally. Connect with professionals you already know and join groups such as the IU School of Education Alumni Network.

Applying for jobs and not hearing back was tough. I applied for over 50 positions and only got three interviews. Most places did not even send an automated email saying they went with another candidate. You just have to keep trying.
