Skip's Weekly Jobs: Edskipper 9/23
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 two additional emails a month with industry insights and advice to help you apply more competitively to the jobs you’re passionate about.
My husband and I celebrated fall with a camping trip and visit to one of Maine’s quirky fairs — the Common Ground fair. On the drive, we kept getting caught following school buses, which was a constant reminder that we were playing hooky.
That’s something I never did as an educator because it felt like it was as much work to take time off as it was to just work through and schedule life around the school year.
But it’s a pretty magical feeling to be in a place where you can say, “it’s time to recharge.”
I’m glad everyone enjoyed the most recent newsletter — a deep dive into Customer Success. I enjoyed coming home to some lovely emails from many of you, so thank you.
~I hope you find some fantastic jobs to apply to this weekend,
Last Week’s Poll Results: How many sources do you use to look for jobs?
Many of your are focusing your attention on only the top job boards.
I’ve been hearing lately that folks are avoiding LinkedIn in their job search — tried of poorly-targeted search results and spam. The comments* to this poll suggest that LinkedIn remains in people’s rotation (but grudgingly!) and that many of you are focusing your attention on the job boards that have given you the best results — Skip’s of course but also target company websites and niche newsletters. The big three continue to be LinkedIn, Indeed, and Edsurge.
I was surprised to not see Idealist mentioned. It’s a wonderful resource for mission-driven jobs, esp as many non-profits are starting to recognize the harms of salary inequity and are incorporating their own pay fairness into their missions.
One that came up that I wasn’t familiar with is CareerShift — many college career centers subscribe which gives alumni membership benefits. It’s worth checking your own alma mater to see if it’s a resource you can add to your toolbox. (Thanks, Brooke, for the h/t!)
*I’m still figuring out comments. I can see them but it appears no one else can…there’s a UX problem here…
This Week’s Poll
This week’s poll is a request to help me by answering 4 quick demographic questions!
New subscribers see these questions when they sign-up but many of you have been long-term readers (a few even are from back when this was called the Edupreneur Insider!).
That means that I don’t know how many of you work in k-12 versus higher ed versus edtech. And, since I’ve recently started sharing state jobs, knowing what state people live in means I could send out email blasts to some of the larger states if I knew who lived where (I’d make this opt-in, don’t worry!). In general, I’ll be able to provide more tailored resources in the future with clearer demographic info.
Even though it’s been a slower week for me curating jobs, these are only some of the jobs currently on the job board. View all the remote jobs and see the great opportunities that are still open!
