If you have a degree and want to share your background and knowledge with others, you may want to consider becoming an online educator or teacher. Not only will you be able to teach others, but you will also be able to gain online technical skills, not to mention adding to your resume. And, best of all, you will be able to do this from home.
How do you go about becoming an online instructor? Here are a few helpful tips.
Examine your professional and academic background. Create a list of your degrees, work experience, as well as additional professional certifications. Some online institutions may only require a bachelor’s degree while others may require a Master’s or even a PhD. You can check out sites such as curriculumweb.org for more information.
Now that you have your qualifications listed, you can now search for online opportunities that match your education and skills. There are many free job search sites that can help you with this endeavor. You should also consider broad Internet searches for institutions that are hiring.
Once you have identified institutions that may suit your background, forward your resume via email. In addition, many schools have formal, online applications that you will need to complete.
Now that you have applied for open positions, you should be prepared to be patient. It can take several weeks before you receive a reply. It generally takes between three to four weeks to receive a reply. You will most likely receive a call or email requesting more information or to schedule an interview.
