K12JobSpot's Teaching Jobs Help Educators, Employers Find Each Other

Internet-Based Job Board Excels at Finding Matches for Difficult-to-Fill Positions.

SKOKIE, IL--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - K12JobSpot, an online resource that specializes in matching education job seekers and employers, has seen consistent growth -- and success -- over the past year.

K12JobSpot is an online job board that is geared exclusively to the unique needs of school districts and education job seekers. K12JobSpot allows employers and school districts to advertise open positions to a nationwide audience, and makes it easier than ever for educators and job seekers interested in working in school districts to find openings and apply for jobs online. K12 offers employers and job seekers alike a better chance of finding a good match, especially for difficult-to-fill or highly specialized educational positions.

K12JobSpot allows employers to create a profile and post job openings. The school districts have complete control over their postings, and it's easy/convenient to update the postings as information changes. School districts are also able to see how much interest each posting has generated, and they can receive applications from qualified educators online. This reduces the school districts' administrative burden, for a savings of time and money. It also helps narrow applicants down to only the most highly qualified candidates.

Likewise, job seekers can search a broad database of employment opportunities, based on geography, school district, and type of position. Once educators find teaching jobs, or other educational positions for which they wish to apply, they can complete an online application with the school district by simply clicking the Apply Now button.
