Conducting an education job search is different for someone who is not a teacher. It can be frustrating! However, there are plenty of non-teaching temporary and career jobs in the education field.
A great place to start is to look for a higher education job, as universities often have hundreds or even thousands of employees. Make a list of all the public, private and community colleges in your area, and go directly to each of their websites.
Some of the larger universities will have job titles that you never even knew existed! For example, have you considered becoming a Big Ten Conference Diversity Trainer for the University of Michigan?
If you’d rather work with K-12 schools, you should also go directly to the websites. Make a list of private K-12 schools and public districts in your target area. Most of the jobs in K-12 schools will be teachers, substitute teachers, teacher assistants, bus drivers or food service workers. There are also usually administrative positions in each district.
Below is a list of websites for finding jobs in education other than teaching.
