Train and Teach With Aspire Public Schools!  Aspire Public Schools, California’s top-performing large, high-poverty school system, changes the odds for low-income students.  Currently, Aspire educates 12,500 students in 34 schools in 6 cities across California and makes a promise to every single Aspire student:  College for Certain.  In 2010-2012, 100% of Aspire’s seniors graduated with admission to a four-year college or university.  Aspire recently announced that the organization will open schools in Memphis, Tennessee in the 2013/14 school year in order to contribute to the focused effort to improve the city’s lowest performing schools.

In collaboration with the University of the Pacific, the Aspire Teacher Residency (ATR) is an intensive teacher training program that recruits and trains talented individuals of all ages and backgrounds to become highly-effective teachers.

ATR is currently recruiting for two programs:

Memphis program – Aspire is looking to further its mission by contributing to the focused effort to improve the lowest performing schools in Memphis, Tennessee and is preparing to open new schools in Memphis.  We are looking for Residents who are interested in spending one year training in our California schools and then pursuing a teaching position in Memphis.  With residency placements available in East Palo Alto, Oakland, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Stockton and Modesto, those who join the ATR-Memphis program will spend the 2013/14 school year with us in California and then teach and open a new school in Memphis in the 2014/15 school year.  In addition to training on best teaching practices and Aspire’s model, Memphis residents will engage in a series of learning experiences and visits to Memphis so that they are prepared for the work they will do in Memphis.

California program – Aspire is looking for residents who are interested in training and teaching in one of our CA schools.  With placements available in East Palo Alto, Oakland, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Stockton and Modesto, those who join the program will spend one year training and then at least 3 years teaching in our CA schools.  Credentials available include: Multiple Subject; Single Subject – English, Math, Science, Social Studies; and Special Education – Mild/Moderate.

10 Questions To Ask A Recruiter (And One To Avoid)

icon_questionsFrom TheLadders.com (1/6/2013)  (By Marc Cenedella)

Every once in awhile, the phone rings, and it’s a recruiter on the other end. While you might not be interested in what he is offering, you have to admit that it’s flattering to get the call. (“Someone thinks I might be right for a job!”) Once you get past the initial compliment, though, you have to get down to the serious business of determining if you are interested.

The recruiter wants to know about you, but before you turn over your resume, there are things you should know about him. Here are 10 questions to ask a recruiter and one question to avoid.  See if you can figure out which is which.  Read the full article from TheLadders.com…

How To Survive A Merger

questionmark3From WSJ.com (1/13/2013) (Wall Street Journal)

When Pittsburgh-based Alcoa, a manufacturer of aluminum, and BHP Billiton, a mining company in Melbourne, Australia, decided to merge their money-losing distribution units, Jack Smith was contracted to help with the human-resources transition. His job involved deciding who would stay on to work at the new company or be offered a severance package. “In many merger situations, the decision on who to keep can be pretty clear,” says Mr. Smith, who is now president of Sanford Rose Associates, an executive search firm in Milwaukee. “But there was one employee who wasn’t the obvious choice to take over as an executive VP. Two other people had better credentials for the job. This guy worked very hard at anticipating the organization that would be needed to pull off this transition. He made a case for the people that he knew and about the roles they might serve. He was smart, did his homework, so we gave him the job.”

Few events are as stressful for employees as news of a merger or acquisition. Regardless of how brightly the “marriage” of two companies is presented, jobs will be lost. But mergers can also open new opportunities for employees who may end up succeeding their laid-off boss. Survival just takes some careful planning. Hopefully, you’ve picked up on some reliable early scuttlebutt about a possible merger. If so, formulate a survival strategy and act quickly.   Read the full article from WSJ.com…

Facilitate Your Way Up!

icon_compassFrom Early Careerist (1/13/2013)

I hate to say it, but the attention span of hiring managers seems to be getting shorter. In fact, I was speaking with an executive-level employer the other day (who regularly reviews resumes), and he commented about how quickly he can scan through a stack of resumes and choose the candidates he plans to call. He admitted that it really is an unfair process—that so many job seekers are judged solely by the quality and presentation of their resumes (documents that too often are afforded a review of only a few seconds).  And if it’s a poor presentation, or boring to the reader, or just doesn’t communicate the right message—they are quickly passed over.

It’s a given that the average employer will invest only a few seconds—literally—in his or her initial resume scan. So it’s critically important to your candidacy to ensure that the part of your resume in which he or she is willing to invest five seconds of attention grabs—and keeps—their attention. So where is the employer’s attention going first … and how can you make the most of that section of your resume?  Read the full article from EarlyCareerist.com…
