  • Absolutely love slide 9, "An extraordinary resume is comprised of extraordinary detail." For teachers to truly stand out, I would highly advise that they provide strong quantitive results in their resumes to truly showcase their effectiveness as a teacher.

  • Dea Elisa-

    Thanks for your comment. Here are my answers to your two questions.

    Updates:
    Since the book is published and even in some bookstores, I consider it a final product. I am in the midst of writing a book on interviews and am in talks with my publishing partner to also release a new edition of the resume book at the same time with some small edits, but those changes would be minor.

    Veteran Teachers
    Great question! I give examples of how you can talk about yourself in your resume that are specific for experienced teachers compared to new teachers.

    Veteran teachers who have positively reviewed the book have said that they liked how I explained how to talk about data and their accomplishments differently than they had been advised in the past. One veteran teacher emailed me this week (review going up on the website soon) that after she made changes suggested in the book, she received 3 interview requests after a steady period of no invites.

    I think whether my book will help a veteran teacher is probably linked to how long ago they updated their resume and conducted a job search, if that makes sense. It can also help if you have A LOT of information about your career that you have to synthesize.

    If you'd like to preview the book before buying, there are two ways. One, you can download my free toolkit on resume bullets off my website that has excerpts. Second, you can also get a free sample of the beginning of the book on Amazon.com via their Look Inside option.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  • How often will this book be updated? How much of the book is dedicated to veteran teachers?
