Congrats, you received: Working Outside of Education
Congratulations! You received Work Outside of Education!
There are many different jobs that you are qualified for in this category because you already have experience training learners, organizing material, and managing projects. You may start looking for a job that allows you to teach adults and break down complex information for various learning types as a Corporate Trainer or Learning and Development Specialist. Your experience in leading committees, planning events, and keeping your class on a learning schedule has prepared you for Project Manager and Office Manager roles.
Focus on roles that are in-person (and not remote) so you don’t have to learn a lot of new technology skills. Companies will love your ability to multitask and stay organized in the face of adversity. The options are endless in how you can add value to corporate companies with the skills you gained as a teacher!
Example careers in your bucket:
- Corporate Trainer
- Project Manager
- Learning and Development Specialist
- Office Manager
Looking for more resources?
This is just the TIP of the iceberg of new possibilities for you, my friend! There are tons of other options for you.
This is just the TIP of the iceberg of new possibilities for you, my friend! There are tons of other options for you. I have all of the potential careers organized into what I call “career buckets” for teachers, the product of hours of vigorous research, and careful consideration.
With the support of a certified career coach and HR expert, I’ve created six categories to help teachers narrow their search more strategically.
Focus on jobs in the bucket that interests you the most (or all of them if you’re planning to get out ASAP and need to cast a wide net!)
I’ve included all six categories into an eBook called the Career Transition Guide for Teachers. The best part? I’ve lowered the price to only $7 for you if you act now!
Get the Career Transition Guide for Teachers for only $7!
One of the reasons you may be struggling with your career hunt is you don't have a step-by-step plan or a structure to go from. But you don't HAVE to do this alone. Learn the strategies that other former teachers have used to help them get started with a career transition and ultimately land careers outside of the classrooms.
After years of working in educational consultant and instructional design, I vowed to create resources to support teachers facing the same questions I had when leaving the classroom. The teacher in me chunks everything into perfect bite-size pieces so you aren't overwhelmed with the process. I create a learning path for you so your tasks are manageable and you make progress towards your career goals!
Right now you are probably on the fence if leaving is the right choice for you, so I can help walk you through the factors to consider to answer this question. The Career Transition Guide for Teachers is only $7 (usually $19) and includes all of this great information:
- The main career buckets that hire teachers without requiring additional degrees.
- A compiled list of over 40 careers that teachers can transition into.
- A list of careers for those who are tech-savvy (and a list for those who aren't!)
- An overview of how to read job descriptions (explained by an HR Expert with 10+ years in the industry!)
- How to evaluate the risk of leaving a full-time teaching job for the unknown.
- Example translations from classroom-to-corporate resumes (written by our HR Expert Resume Writer!)
- Motivational prompts to help you gain the confidence you need to get started.
- A checklist of everything you'll need to do for your career transition (so you know you aren't missing anything)!
Until next time,
Teacher Career Coach
