Getting Hired as a Teacher in Ontario

As you begin your job search, it is very important that you be well prepared. You must clearly understand what you have to offer to an employer, what the employer is looking for to fill this position and how your strengths fit with the employer’s needs.

Some key steps in the job search process have been provided here to help you evaluate your strengths, list your skills and create an effective resume and cover letter. A list of helpful resources has also been included, with a particular focus on those websites with materials related to the Ontario curriculum. Various handbooks written specifically to address the needs of occasional teachers have been suggested as well, since many newly certified teachers begin their careers as occasional teachers.
