So. Burlington, VT (April 28, 2004) -- With graduation approaching, many college seniors are anticipating that giant step into the real world. For graduates who want to teach, SchoolSpring, a leading online employment source for educators, makes that step a little less daunting by providing access to jobs in teaching and education, as well as customized services that help candidates navigate their way through the job search process. SchoolSpring's focus is the K-12 sector in both public and private schools, and offers opportunities for teachers and administrators in all disciplines.
"Finding that first teaching job out of college isn't always easy," says Jim Fitzpatrick, president of SchoolSpring. "The new SchoolSpring website provides a great advantage because it offers graduates an education-focused site with up to the minute information on job openings, access to industry resources, as well as the tools they need to manage an effective job search...all online."
In addition to job listings and credentials management, one of the most compelling services the company offers is something they call SchoolSpring Plus. This innovative approach to job hunting allows job seekers to apply online for any job anywhere in the world. SchoolSpring will take a job seeker's online portfolio complete with all of the requisite information and distribute it to any employer chosen by the candidate, regardless of whether the employer is a member of SchoolSpring. After receiving confirmation of receipt of the application, candidates can track activity on this application through their standard SchoolSpring account.
While most of the services offered through SchoolSpring are free to jobseekers, there is a nominal fee for SchoolSpring Plus.
"I found SchoolSpring to be invaluable," said Mindi Johnson, a music teacher who recently relocated to New England from Wyoming. "SchoolSpring helped me with my job search, including managing all my documents and credentials and distributing them to prospective employers. It's how I found my new job all the way across the country."
Graduates can avail themselves of SchoolSpring's free services, such as credentials management, job search tracking, profile posting and search agent, among others, by registering at www.SchoolSpring.com.
