      Learned experience, worked in the past as a para, and subbed before.


      Less pay if you are certified, but cannot get teaching certificate because you are not hired as a permanent teacher. Therefore, the company only pay you less than certified pay. Also, the pay for a degree or certified sub is less than the pay for a para!

        Business Outlook


        Summer holidays and getting time to spend with kids on the weekend. If you are a parent, you get to spend school holidays with w family even though you might be burnout.


        Micromanaging. You will be required to teach outside your field. For example, you are certified to teach mathematics, you might be asked to teach other courses you are not certified in like history, science, and art. Lots of duties ( watching the kids during breakfast and lunch) Getting to use the restroom is difficult because you are not allowed to leave students unattended and have no other staff to relieve you for you to use the restroom. Class size overload. You do not get a lunch break. You might be required to teach 7 or 8 different class period with a class size of 35 students per class.

      RFP Coordinator

      I have a 5 year gap in my work history due to an illness. How do I explain this? I can't lie, SSD is on my background check as a previous employer. I am on it and looking to re-enter the job market and get off of it, but I understand it is a reason for employers to pause in hiring me.


      Senior Associate

      How do you interview for a position when you are under-qualified based on seniority but not based on skills? I currently serve as a senior associate for a reputable consulting firm, and I have an interview for an associate director position. However, I am just shy of the minimum YOE requirement included on the job application and relatively young (though I meet all of the other requirements). Any advice on convincing the hiring manager I am ready for a mid-level role?



      Had 4 behavioral interviews for a position last week. Last Friday (which was the last of the four interviews), the interviewer spent most of the interview selling me on the job and didn't ask me any questions. She ended the interview by saying she thinks I am confident and would be a great fit for the role. I took this as a good sign but giving it's 2023 you never truly know. Has anyone ever had an interviewer do something similar and not gotten the job?
