I surf the Internet a lot for work, am on lots of lists, receive lots of alerts, and also get leads from friends and colleagues. Below are a few sites that I reference a fair amount. You can set up alerts with many of them. I will post additional ones as they come along. PLEASE ADD YOUR SOURCES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!!!!
I also, like many of you, go straight to the publishers’ websites, as well as to organizations that I am drawn to. That’s crazy tedious searching, but it often pays off. This link (which I might have already provided) suggests tools that link you to a site for regular updates.
And, I’ve also been looking at RFP sites…even have landed gigs from those…I will generate a separate list for those in a few days.
Also think about educational media companies, ed tech companies, arts-centric organizations, companies looking for educational content writers…so many possibilities.
There are fee-based, member-only sites, like EFA.org (which also posts job announcements for members…I got into a bit of hot water because I was posting from their list…oh, well…lessons learned).
A few hiring entities have posted jobs directly to the site. I WANT MORE OF THAT IN THE FUTURE!
Of course, nothing beats word of mouth and referrals!!
Sites to Peruse
linkedin.com (you really have to narrow down the search terms here, but I do find a lot…I know it’s tedious to come across stuff…but I do) I also customize searches on Google, Indeed, Simply Hired, and Nexxt (again, it can be a pain, but I find lots of really interesting gigs there)
Chronicle Vitae Jobs (every now and then, something curriculum related emerges)
Get Curriculum Jobs ( I DON’T love this site, but every now and then…)
Craig’s List (yep, another painful site, but there are often interesting gigs, and you can search by state)
Edu Jobs for Flexible Practitioners (almost feels like a sister site…I LOVE THIS ONE!!!!)
Virtual Vocations (not loving this site…BUT…what is good is that you get a sense of the companies out there, and can go directly to their sites to see full job listings)
Flex Jobs (eh…much like Virtual Vocations, but it does not update efficiently…I don’t recommend it but it’s worth a perusal to see what’s out there)
