Recruitment and Career Expert Announces Author Signing Event in Savannah, GA
Tracy Brisson's book Confessions of a Teacher Recruiter: How to Create an Extraordinary Resume and Hook Your Dream Job features critical advice that can help educators land a position in today’s competitive market.
Higher standards and a greater focus on results has made the teacher job search more difficult than ever. A September 2013 survey administered by Monster Worldwide, Inc., found that only 31% of educators noted confidence in finding future work within their profession, placing them 10th out of the 11 professions surveyed.
"Today's changing economy requires teachers to articulate their competitive advantage effectively if they want to be successful in their careers," says Brisson, a former Director of Teacher Recruitment for the New York City public schools. "Having a fantastic resume is the first key document that communicates that story."
Confessions of a Teacher Recruiter: How to Create an Extraordinary Resume and Hook Your Dream Job will be for sale at the author signing event and is also available for the Kindle and in paperback, as well as bulk purchasing, via the book’s website at http://confessionsofateacherrecruiter.com. Since its spring 2013 release, the book has cracked the top 25 in Amazon.com’s resume category and has been praised by teachers who found jobs after following Brisson’s advice.
