Teacher Resumes

Teacher Resumes, just like any other types of resumes, get scanned by the recruiter/ employer for around 10 seconds, during which time it's fate is decided.

My team of Professional Resume Writers, have presented below, some important tips that were compiled over a period of 19 years since we've offered our GCC Number 1, Best-Selling Resume and CV Writing Services customized for Dubai and the entire Middle East (Gulf) region.

Hence, the ONE point my team of expert Resume Writers and I always stress upon is to have the strengths and achievements "JUMP OUT" at the Employer.

I mean, all the other information is secondary as compared to the things that you are capable of doing and the ones that you have already done and proved yourself at.

Teacher Resumes - Important Tips

  • A Professional Summary listing your strongest skills and abilities that are targeted towards teaching, managing students, etc. should be written right at the start of your Resume. This immediately gives the HR Manager an idea about you. This will kindle her/ his interest to read further about you.
  • Recruiters want to know about the skills and strategies you used in classroom management, the teaching methods employed by you, your experience with students with special needs, and how you interacted with their parents.

    They also want to know about your achievements in relation to your progress as a teacher, about noticeable differences in the overall improvement in grades of your class due to your inputs.

    Basically, you need to write about some measurable achievements that can be credited due to the hard work put in by you individually or as part of a team.    
  • If you have experience other than that in teaching, try to avoid adding it to your Resume altogether. If your overall experience is less, then add it by all means, but try to downplay it. In the sense that, do not really brag about achievements and responsibilities for jobs unrelated to Teaching.

Some important teaching skills are:

  1. Planning
  2. Classroom Management
  3. Differentiation
  4. Mentoring
  5. Technology, especially, online teaching,
  6. Parent-Teacher Meetings
  7. Observations
  8. ADHD
  9. Curriculum Setting

Teaching Resumes - Important Tips contd...

  • Point out that you will dress modestly. The Middle East region comprising of countries like United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Jordan and Egypt are Islamic countries where women and even men dress quite conservatively.

    In a teaching position, you want to send the correct signals to your Employers and the School Principals and College Deans.

  • The Gulf Countries have attracted highly Talented Teachers from The USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, South Africa and others due to one main reason. There is NO INCOME TAX levied.

    Backed by an unlimited supply of Oil, these countries are virtually Recession-proof. With so many people here, from across the world living and working together, you need to also point out that you are very tolerant with other people's religion and beliefs.

  • Resumes are scanned and stored in electronic databases. Searches for Teacher Resumes are then made on these databases with keywords such as "Elementary English Language Teacher", "Music Teacher" "Sports Teacher" etc.

    Make sure to use the correct "Resume Action Words", Power Keywords that will bring your Resume in front of others for online searches.

  • Use bullet-ed points to make each responsibility and achievement stand out, instead of writing a paragraph.

  • Finally, keep your Resume at most 2-3 pages long. Rarely 4 pages and never more than that.

Teaching CV Formats

Teacher Resumes - What Not To Include:

  • An Objective Statement about what you want to do in your career, life etc. should be removed. The head hunter wants to know what you can do for the educational institution and it's goals rather than your own.

  • Do not include hobbies. "I like playing basketball and making friends". Such statements are best avoided.

I am sure that you found this information helpful in understanding why it is essential to have a professional CV. Writing a CV is much more than just knowing English (even if you are a native English speaker). It's a very competitive world out there, and if you want to get that exclusive job, then you have to take a step right now.
