Skip's Edtech Jobs: February 17, 2024

Thank you for reading the EdSkipper, Skip’s newsletter about skipping from education to education-aligned careers. Every Saturday, I send out a list of curated remote jobs. Premium subscribers receive access to additional jobs in the Edskipper database and two additional emails a month with advice to help you apply more competitively.

Every February, I see a strong uptick in visitors to the website and followers on LinkedIn. On the company side, I’m seeing more and more companies post a job and pull it within the week (sometimes in just a few days — I posted an HMH job that showed up Tuesday and they anticipated closing it … yesterday).

It’s definitely educator hiring season.

I’ve seen a few recruiters discuss on LinkedIn when to pull a job listing down recently.

Long time ago, companies would leave them an application open for 30 days, look through the applications, and interview some folks. Now they’re often getting 1,000+ resumes in a few days. (And this isn’t just in edtech — remote jobs in general are impacted.)

That leaves recruiters with a conundrum: do they leave the job open so that they capture more candidates and get the best candidate pool or do they close it because the early bird gets the worm?

There’s no consensus which makes it challenging for you as job seekers to figure out how long you have to apply to a role. And it doesn’t help when listings on google and other job aggregators are stale by the time the alert gets to you.

I’ve also noticed that many companies leave the job description on the website (so the link is active) but take it down from their company page. So it appears open but actually isn’t.

That’s why I source directly from company’s career pages — if it’s listed there, I share it; otherwise, it goes into the archive.

~I hope you find some fantastic jobs to apply to this weekend,

This Week’s Poll

I don’t have a current LinkedIn Premium subscription right now but I’ve been noticing an increase in AI prompts on LinkedIn right now — personalized takeaways to a post, drafting messages, and even tailoring resumes to particular jobs. In addition, LinkedIn just rolled out AI messaging functions to recruiters to cut down on some of their rote or lower-value tasks. Once I get this website revamp finished, I’ll play around with LinkedIn Premium but until then, what do y’all think?!

Are you using LinkedIn's New AI Upgrades?
