Careers in Education

The Center for Career Exploration & Success offers a comprehensive series of programs to assist students in their journey into the field of education.

What Do Teacher Candidates Need To Do?

  • Update/maintain your profile on Handshake for inclusion in the Student Resume Book and access to school districts' job postings.
  • Attend Education workshops and events for Education majors. Please note: any Education major who intends to participate in on-campus interviewing and/or mock interviews must attend either:
    • Making Employer Contacts & Interviewing (specifically for teacher education majors) or
    • Basic Interviewing Skills
    You only need to attend one of these programs during your time at Miami.

Credential Files

A credential file contains letters of recommendations and recommendation forms from cooperating teachers, supervising professors and others who know your abilities and is sent to school districts as part of the application process. Some students either create their own portfolio or you may consider using Interfolio or Chalk & Wire for maintaining this documentation.
