Panicking over not having a job for September? Stressed out, frazzled already and in need of a helping hand? Well, here are a few ways RealiseMe can help you. Sit back, have a read of this and breathe a big sign of relief, we’ve got your back!
1. Work out what you want
Firstly, it’s worth taking some time to figure out exactly what you want from a job and a career in teaching.
Sit down in a quiet spot and have a real think about what area you want to work in, what kind of teacher you want to be, what age group you want to educate and what would make your perfect job.
Jot down some notes and spend those few minutes really honing in on what you’re looking for, it will save you a lot of time and hassle in the long run.
Taking that extra time to work out what kind of teaching role you really want will help you feel more together, less stressed and more focused on securing that ideal job. It will also ensure that when you’re choosing the jobs to send your CV and details to, that they are all ones you would be interested in rather than just haphazardly applying to every teaching job going, even though you know you wouldn’t thrive or enjoy yourself there.
Planning makes all the difference and will seriously get you in the right mindset to start your job searching.
