As we begin harnessing our collective energy for this recruiting season I wanted to reach out to you and share the timeline for the Campus Recruiter Application Process and the overall Teacher Recruitment Schedule across the Collaborative. Please apply to recruit with us! We need your voice inspiring next summer’s teacher cohort.
By recruiting with Breakthrough you will be able to:
- Share your inspiring Breakthrough experience with others on your campus
- Connect with college recruiters from across the country
- Build professional campaigning and networking skills
- Support Breakthrough programming by increasing the quality of Breakthrough Teachers one at a time
- Take on a leadership role at your campus in advocating for educational access and reform
- Earn a $tipend and other awesome Breakthrough swag…Mmm, sweatshirts…
By following this link to the 2009-2010 Campus Recruiter Application you will be able to view, download and complete the Campus Recruiter Application. (If for some reason the link does not work, please email me immediately). The application is short but concise. You will be able to complete it quickly but make sure it is quality. The Campus Recruiter selection process is equally competitive to the teacher selection process. Applications are due October 26th 2009 5:00 PST. I know it’s fast approaching; I also know that anyone who taught at a Breakthrough site this summer thrives under deadline.
Campus Recuiter Training will happen during the first week of November and the first week of December. The application will launch in the first week of December. While the bulk of our recruitment efforts take place in January and Feburary (with a Teacher Application deadline of March 1, 2010), it is necessary to prepare for that time with fall trainings and groundwork setting.
As you will see in the 2009-2010 Campus Recruiter Application, we have chosen 28 colleges and universities at which to pay and support Campus Recruiters. This is due to a limited amount of human and financial resources; there’s also more information/explanation inside the Campus Recruiter Application. However, we would like nothing more than to provide entreprenurial Breakthrough Ambassadors to run recruiting campaigns at your schools to deepen the Breakthrough Teacher community at your school. To that end, we will gladly provide you with recruiting resources and Breakthorugh swag. Who knows!? Perhaps, your successes will move your school into a paid recruiting school. If you are interested in this opportunity and your school is not listed on the application, please, please, PLEASE reach out to me ASAP.
All of the information you need to apply should be in the Application. Please don’t hesitate to email or call me with any questions. I sincerely look forward to your application and working with you to recruit incredible candidates to inspire and lead our students next year.
