Our Job Search Assistance for Teachers program offers job search assistance to our 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 their Winter Quarter, teacher 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
A series of practice interviews with our alumni and local district employers where verbal and written feedback is provided
A hiring Job Fair exclusively for UC Davis trained teachers
Beginning at the end of Winter Quarter, weekly employment emails are sent to students making them aware of recruitment events and notices of job openings we receive from alumni/employers.
If you would like to hire a UCD trained teacher, we offer the following services to assist you:
Send us your notice of job fairs so that we may share them with our credential candidates. Send to: email@example.com
Beginning in mid-March, send us your job openings so that we may share them with our credential candidates. It is helpful for you to provide information on your community, why they should consider your district, and next steps in the process if they are interested. Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Participation in the Job Fair is limited and invitations are offered to our partner districts, districts from a variety of geographical locations, and districts who hire our students. Consideration is given to other districts based on space availability.
If you would like to be considered for the 2019 Job Fair, please watch this website for updates. Each year we review student feedback after the fair and evaluate our attendee list for future events.
Each year the School of Education teaching credential students participate in mock interviews, a unique career preparation opportunity. We host two mock interview days in which experienced alumni and district representatives conduct practice interviews of our teaching credential students. Students learn to present themselves as effectively as possible in job interviews—and sometimes even receive district job offers.
