Selected helps educators streamline the job search process by interacting with many employers in one place. Our job search and professional development services are free to candidates. There are no fees—ever!

For candidates, the process is:

  1. Create a free account & get approved:  Sign up here and tell us what type of education jobs you're looking for including: location, employer type, role, subjects, and grade levels so we can showcase your profile to relevant employers. You'll also provide details about your background and qualifications. Your progress saves as you go and your profile will be eligible for submission all the required sections are completed.

  2. Get showcased to employers:  Once your profile is approved, we show an anonymized version of it to employers that meet your criteria so they can reach out to you about relevant openings. This is different than your typical job board and one reason it is so important to keep your profile up to date!

  3. Search, favorite, and apply: Search for employers on our Schools and Families pages. Click the "Favorite" button to alert them that you'd like to hear more! Or, check out open Job Posts and share your resume & contact information by using the 1-Click Apply button.

  4. Chat with employers:  Review messages from employers who want to tell you more about their school or position. Respond to their message to display your resume and contact information to discuss opportunities further.

  5. Get hired:  Speak with employers and complete their interview process to find a great fit. If your conversation advances to a job offer, you can continue to get support from Selected through our free resources including our newsletter, blog, and webinars.
