I’m looking at a credentialed teaching application.
On the page where all of the jobs are listed for the school district (not just teaching jobs, jobs like police officers, principals, are also included) it says “it’s important to include all relevant work experiences.” I point this out because the job description doesn’t say “list credentialed teaching experience,” but I’m thinking it says it’s important to list “relevant work experience” on the main page because they post jobs other than teaching, so maybe that’s why they don’t say “list credentialed teaching jobs only.”
If I don’t have any credentialed teaching experience, should I just include non credentialed teaching experience I have? There are non credentialed teaching jobs I don’t want to post.
I’ve dissected the words relevant, similar and related, and found they are very different. I believe I have non credentialed teaching experience that are similar or related to the job I’m applying for, but they aren’t relevant.
For instance, if I coached a percussion group 6 hours a week after school, I think that’s similar to the music credential job I’m applying for since I am teaching music, but it’s not relevant because the credentialed music job I’m applying for involves job duties I’ve never performed before like, teaching wind and string instruments (I’ve never taught these instruments before) and it involves classroom teaching, grading, conducting a band, etc.
It it safe to say the word “relevant” is subjective, in which one could decide if a work experience is relevant to the job they are applying for?
