Due to the volume of applications we receive every day, we're unable to provide feedback to every candidate who applies for a job advertised on our website.
We understand it can be discouraging to apply but not hear back from a school. We have some tips on how to improve your chances of landing a job.
Increase your competitiveness by doing the following:

- Make sure the work experience and education you have listed in your profile is as close as possible to what's in your resume because any differences will confuse employers
- Have all your teaching qualifications and certifications added to your profile and resume
- Include 2-3 professional references – Here are 5 things you need to know when submitting your references
