Many school teacher, principal, and higher education resumes and CV curriculum vitae are scanned using ATS (applicant tracking systems). This means your job search documents will need to include the right academic focused keywords in order to pass the system. The precise writing of accomplishments and showcasing the correct academic leadership and teaching skills in a resume is what makes resume writing an art.

You will notice the teacher resumes we display here are not heavy infographic resumes. These types of ducuments look nice, but you must also be concerned about applicant tracking system software. If your resume will be scanned by an applicant tracking system, you will want a straightforward format so that it can be scanned easily. This style of document can interfere with the scanning system, so if you want one, you may need a second resume version to use for the scanning systems.
