Job Search Assistance

Job Search Assistance for Teachers (JSAT)


Our Job Search Assistance for Teachers program offers job search assistance to our credential candidates as well as support to the employers who seek to hire our candidates. Referred to as JSAT, the program is supported by Teacher Education faculty, staff in Student Services, our partners at the Internship and Career Center, alumni of our program, and administrators from local school districts.

For Teacher Candidates:

Beginning in Winter Quarter, credential candidates are provided a series of events and services to support them as they begin their employment search.  The JSAT process provides guidance and support on a wide variety of issues involved in a job search, such as: 

  • Resume and cover letter preparation through written examples and in-person assistance
  • How to establish a profile and apply for positions via Edjoin (the premier education job website)
  • Interview tips and practice questions
  • Practice interviews with local district employers where verbal and written feedback is provided
  • A hiring Job Fair exclusively for UC Davis trained teachers
  • Weekly employment emails informing candidates of recruitment events and notices of job openings
