Employer Information and Registration

Minnesota public schools can now participate in the 2020 Virtual Recruiting Networks for Educators and Support staff (coming June).    In addition to the benefits of an actively and aggressively promoted job board, the Recruiting Networks deliver a number of benefits available only through the pooling of public resources, technical expertise in common systems, and connection of organizations that have mutually-aligned incentives.

Participating schools get...

Automatic posting of all of your educational vacancies to educatemn.org and distribution to the Educate Minnesota job distribution network until June 30, 2021.   

Hands-free!  Automatic synchronization will open, close, and update from your applicant tracking system.  
All “Apply” actions go directly into your applicant tracking system.  Educate Minnesota does not “collect” your applicants.

The Educate Minnesota Job Distribution network includes:

  • Minnesota Colleges and Universities for Teacher Education (31 IHEs)
  • Handshake, “The #1 way college students find jobs”

Currently supported applicant tracking systems: Frontline Recruit & Hire™ (formerly AppliTrack)
Automatic Posting and Distribution is an add-on to the standard network participation.

Candidates at your recruiting and hiring events.

Events are an impactful way for candidates to connect with your school culture and personality.   Virtual events can give prospective employees the opportunity to ask live questions, see your offices, and interact with employees in the field first-hand (and in real time).   Low-cost examples include hold site/school tours, employee panels, AMAs (Ask Me Anything).

Your physical and virtual events will be promoted to all candidates through the network communications (email, chat, group events), and appear on the Network Events Calendar.

Qualified candidates sent to your inbox. 
Receive all candidate profiles matching your location and areas of interest while participating in the network.  Matching candidate profiles are emailed to a district contact list immediately.


Assistance with marketing, including vacancy notices and your employer brand.  

Finding the candidate that fits with your school will result in greater impact with students and a longer stay in the teaching profession.  With an Enhanced Employer Profile* built for educatemn.org, you show candidates the unique challenges and opportunities that they will encounter as a successful educator with your organization.  Put forward the information that job seekers are looking for to find that “perfect fit”.

Your Enhanced Employer Profile for educatemn.org will be produced by Educate MN designers (example).    Use the results on your own school websites.  Send updates by email as desired.
