Finding a job is hard work! That statement is no less true for early childhood professionals as it is for other job seekers. In fact, in the field of early childhood, where the intentional development of career plans and goals are not always prioritized, it may even be more challenging.
To address these challenges, the Institute’s Career Development Services Center has developed a series of job search workshops as part of the comprehensive system of resources and supports specifically designed to meet the needs of individuals who are interested in working with young children and their families – both inside and outside of the classroom!
The Career Center’s team supports attendees in developing a better understanding of the importance of building an effective resume and cover letter; which is an essential part of any successful job search. Skills, such as, identifying and prioritizing the most effective job search strategies, while simultaneously developing personal action plans for finding, a job are also be demonstrated.
Whether unemployed, under-employed, career changers, veterans or new to the field these sessions help job seekers learn how to coordinate a productive and effective job search. Attendees leave each session with a new network of fellow early childhood professionals as well as the basic tools necessary to successfully market themselves to a potential employer – increasing their chance of being made a job offer.
The workshops are interactive, motivating, and fun! Individuals who attend the job search workshops and apply what they learn are able to shorten the time they spend looking for work and have increased confidence in their ability to successfully achieve their career goals.
