Contribute to the 2020 Job Search Handbook for Educators!

AAEE’s Job Search Handbook for Educators is considered the premier resource "manual" for pre-service educators, recent graduates, and others interested in careers in the PK-12 field. Each edition contains dozens of helpful articles to inspire, encourage, and guide novice educators as they pursue their professional goals. 

You are invited to submit an article for the 2020 edition of the Job Search Handbook for Educators. We are requesting articles that are between 250 and 1,000 words in length.

The deadline for consideration is Friday, February 15, 2019.

Submit an article for the 2020 Job Search Handbook for Educators!

I'm Ready to Help Prospective Teachers!


We are seeking articles related to the following topics:

  • Employment applications, cover letters, resumes, and professional references
  • Networking, professional appearance, and social media
  • Portfolios and interview skills
  • Traditional and non-traditional employment options 
  • Equity, diversity, and cultural competence
  • Skills, salary, and the demand for educators
