Get included in the Teacher List for Employers (for grads of this academic year only)

Enter your information online to be included. School administrators refer to this list frequently when looking for people to fill positions at their schools. This is a valuable job searching tool for you! We update it as students report their jobs.

If school administrators contact you regarding job openings at their schools, please reply out of courtesy even if you're not interested in the position.

Credential Files

Credential files are self-managed by students. There are many options for creating a credential file or portfolio. For example, students can send documents as an email attachment, upload them to Google Drive and send a link to share access with administrators, put them in a portfolio on LinkedIn, or create a website using a site such as We encourage students to include the following in a credential file or professional portfolio:

  1. Two or three recommendations:
    • one employer
    • one professor (from any class you have taken—not just education)
    • pastor recommendation or someone who knows your spiritual walk (optional, but encouraged if you'd like to teach in a Christian school)
  2. Your résumé
  3. Your transcript (from Center for Student Success) and your final student teaching internship evaluations (both by your supervisor and mentor teacher, from Education Department)

Requesting Recommendations

Request your recommendations thoughtfully. When requesting recommendations, ask the prospective recommender if they can give you a glowing letter. If they cannot, ask someone else.
