Job Search Assistance for Teachers - School of Education
(K-12) Teacher Credentialed Program Students and Alumni
The UC Davis School of Education (SOE), and Internship and Career Center (ICC) have partnered to help meet the career service needs of the UC Davis credentialed and master's degree students, and alumni.
To support credential candidates, a Career Resource Manual for single and multiple subject teachers was developed with tips on writing resumes and cover letters, preparing for an interview, and successfully using Edjoin.com. The manual also includes samples of resumes, cover letter, and NCLB and ELL/CLAD work-around documents. The Career Resource Manual can be accessed via the SOE's Intranet. Simply login, select SOE Guides, Student Services Guides, Credential/MA Program, and then Edjoin.
The Career Resource Manual can also be accessed via the ICC's MPP SmartSite with a UC Davis login and Kerberos passphrase. ERROR? You must first join the UC Davis ICC's MPP SmartSite folder to access these resources. Click here for instructions. If you do not follow the instructions, you will see an error message such as "ERROR: HTTP Status 403 ". If after following these instructions you are still having problems, please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The most popular job search site for finding teaching positions (K-12) is Edjoin.com.
For in-depth questions, you can make an appointment. Use the directory to find an adviser who serves your career interests.
To make an appointment, you must have an Aggie Job Link account. Current UC Davis students can login to Aggie Job Link using their UC Davis login and kerberos passphrase.
Alumni and postdocs must create and use their email and AJL password.
You can make a confidential, one-to-one advising appointment, get help in preparing your application materials (resume and cover letter) or practice for an interview. ICC makes advising appointments online via Aggie Job Link. All School of Education students have an account. Simply log in, complete your profile indicating your degree level as "Teaching Credential" and year in school as "Teacher Credential Program", and make an appointment that fits your schedule.
