What should I include in my job posting? 

The journey to finding the right candidate starts with a well-written job description. The better your description of the role, the better your chance of finding the perfect candidate. 

Here are some tips on what to include.

  • Be sure to fill in all fields. TESOL's Career Center is configured so that job seekers can search according to focus area, location, job type, job role, salary range, and organization type. Job seekers can also set up search agents that notify them when a job that meets their skills and interests is posted. If you do not complete all the fields in the online submission form, your job may not appear in searches by some applicants who are interested in your job. If you omit information, you risk losing a valuable pool of highly focused job seekers.
  • Be as specific as possible about the educational or experience requirements for your job. This will help to ensure that your applicants meet your requirements and do not unknowingly misrepresent their credentials.
  • If you require teachers to hold some type of certification or licensure, be sure to specify exactly what kind. Specific qualifications and requirements, like "ESL endorsement issued by the state of Virginia" or "18 graduate-level credit hours in TESOL or a related field" are much more meaningful and useful to candidates than vague, general, or possibly ambiguous terms.
  • Specify the unit of currency for the salary and how often this amount will be paid. Job seekers from around the world may interpret differently how salary terms are presented, the unit of currency you are using, or even what constitutes a reasonable assumption about the salary for the posted job. Specify whether the salary is the rate per course, per hour, per day, per week, per month, per semester, or per year.
