Edskipper: Jobs for Educators (9/29/23)
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.
After a very long summer of sluggish job postings, the last two days have been a whirlwind of jobs.
I’ve been seeing both news of layoffs and a lot of sales jobs. Sales jobs are a fantastic leading indicator of company confidence and expansion but layoffs also highlight how the industry is starting to consolidate around a new post-Esser-funding normal.
Some companies are going to go bust, either slowly or all at once. Other companies will thrive in the vacuum that’s created.
Look this week for a longer newsletter sharing industry insights into the current health of the edtech market and advice on how to weather the coming challenges.
~I hope you find some fantastic jobs to apply to this weekend,

Are You Worried about Potential Edtech Layoffs?
Imagine Learning became the most recent company to announce edtech layoffs, and Esser money expires at the the end of the (school) year. Are you worried about potential layoffs as you transition to edtech?
