I am looking for non-teaching work. How do I sell the skills and qualities that made me an excellent teacher in the business world?

Use your current skills:

  • Managing a team (kids/staff)
  • Preparation (lessons)
  • Target driven (results)
  • Public Speaking (assembly, in front of class)
  • Teaching/Training (will be needed in business)

And then where you feel you lack. Get some new knowledge!

Read:

  • The Personal MBA
  • From Good to Great
  • Anything by Richard Branson
  • Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook story

(This will already put you ahead of most)

Get some experience

  • Free Internship/Voluntary work
  • Shadow a friend at work
  • Speak to any friends that are small business owners

And you’ll be fine :slight_smile:
