What people have to say about Confessions of a Teacher Recruiter
“I put this book on my iPad and spent an afternoon reading the first few chapters… I am a recent college grad and I went to school to become a teacher. I thought finding a teaching position would be easy after I graduated. Not the case. I had applied for over 75 jobs in my area and never even got the interview. I read the first few chapters of this book, tweaked my resume the next day, and got hired within a week after sending out my resume to a new batch of districts…” -A. Ross
“This is an awesome book if you are job hunting!” -Tasha G.
