Want to Get Hired?

Over the years, I have seen many resumes and many phone calls from people looking for teaching jobs. Some are more innovative than others. This one, got my attention...

No, it was not one sent to me. You can view this one, view some similar ones, and read about the project on Presentation Zen.

The video is entertaining, but it's also food for thought. Whether it's finding that first teaching job or trying to break into administration, I ask those who come to me for advice one question, "What makes you different from all the rest?" Maybe we can't showcase our uniqueness in a video such as this, but identifying our own special qualities and communicating them is essential, regardless of the job we want.
