Carolyn Birsky ‘10.5 offers students a different way of approaching the job search process and avoid the trap of taking any job they can get their hands on. Students leave this event with a framework to self-inventory their strengths, values, along with a set of clear, actionable ways to conduct a purposeful job search. Ultimately, they will set themselves up to land a job that best suits them post-graduation, one that positions them for growth instead of frustration.

Don’t Want to be in the Classroom? Try One of These Careers in Education Instead
Often during my advising appointments with students here at Middlebury, I speak with students about how much they enjoy the direct experiences they’ve had working with youth during summer camp counseling jobs or through their volunteer mentoring, but have the distinct knowledge that they don’t want to be teaching in a classroom. What advice could I give them? So when I came across this article by Deborah Swerdlow on the Idealist.org Careers job search blog, I thought it fitting for students to help explore the many different ways one can go about staying in an education-related job without having to be in front of the classroom. Check out the article and its many links to cool opportunities here.

Teacher Residency for Rural Education (TRRE) is a grant-funded program from the U.S. Department of Education which prepares teachers to work in rural, high-need NH schools. TRRE offers an opportunity for individuals to earn a master’s degree in education from UNH and an initial NH teacher certification in elementary or secondary, math or science. Accepted residents participate in a summer institute, a community internship, and a year-long residency at a partnership school in rural NH.
Teaching residents are provided with a $28,000 living stipend, new laptop computer, and 50% tuition discount during the 15-month program. In return, residents commit to working in a rural, high- needs NH school for three years upon graduation, during which time they benefit from two years of mentoring and induction support.
