Skip's Edtech Jobs: February 24, 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.

This past week was a database week as we’re getting closer and closer to our new website launch. My major task was to organize the database so that I’m collecting consistent information and determining the best way to connect the metadata with filters for the new website.

It’s a fun challenge to tag data so that it shows the most useful information but also doesn’t overshare. I’m still finding the balance! But once the new website launches, you’ll be able to sort by jobs that meet your minimum salary, required experience and desired job location.

Part of this week’s database work involved reviewing ~2,200 jobs from the 300 companies I regularly scraped. It’s amazing how many companies post a ton of jobs but only some of those jobs are relevant to this audience. I thought you might be interested in some of the data trends.

Out of 2,200 jobs, ~500 were suitable for folks with an education background — this included location-specific roles.

Of the ones that weren’t suitable, here’s a summary of why I didn’t select them:

  • ~300 of these roles were not looking for candidates with an education background. For example, a marketing role that just wanted candidates who had marketing experience or a software role that didn’t ask for candidates who understood education. (That latter example is one reason I recently added a ‘technical’ job category — there are some edtech companies who are looking for a combination of web development and education skills!)

  • ~350 were in-person or hybrid roles. I had a lot of fun distinguishing between a remote role that required specific state residency, a role that wanted someone in the office 2 days a week, and a remote role that require significant in-state travel. We definitely need some standardized language here! My favorite was a role that said it was ‘fully remote’ but then listed the same job title in 2-3 different cities.

  • This one surprised me: ~125 roles did not include a salary (or paid an appalling salary). I only search companies that typically post salaries and, to be honest, $60k is a very low bar with recent inflation. I definitely don’t expect to rule out this many roles because of salary!

  • ~220 were international roles

  • and then there were the jobs that I’ve been seeing since I started this project back in November. Are those companies really hiring? (Summer project: email them and ask!)

If you’re spending a ton of time on company job boards, clicking half a dozen links to find the 1 or 2 that are relevant for you, this is why. Even company job boards are the wild, wild west.

And there’s definitely no reason for us all to be clicking on the same links over and over again — which is why I’m so excited to be expanding the job board with the database and the new website!

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

Last Week’s Poll

The results of the poll definitely made me intrigued about the LinkedIn’s new AI features — a bunch of people who tried them said they’re actually good. I heard that it helps illuminate what LI’s ATS values which is useful for smaller companies who often use ‘easy apply’ as their only ATS. I got a lot more comments about why it’s not working!

Of course, most of you don’t regularly subscribe LinkedIn Premium. A few people commented that there’s a perception that it’s necessary for networking but that it doesn’t really facilitate meaningful connections. Until recently, I would definitely have not recommended subscribing — the features are fairly limited, and it’s expensive. I haven’t explored the new features to know whether I’ll change this recommendation in the future.
