Finding Jobs in Texas Tough Economy

Here's my list of places to find Education-related jobs in Texas:

  1. TASAnet.org's Career Center - This is one of the best sites around to find out about new jobs. While it doesn't have ALL jobs available, you will find more here than anywhere else.
  2. Texas Education Agency's (TEA) School District Jobs - This is a collaborative effort by the Texas Education Agency and the Texas WorkForce Commission. Definitely worth checking out. For example, I did a search based on a zip code in my city. Unfortunately, the result just has you going to individual district/charter school job sites. Not strictly providing a list of jobs, but if you're are hoping to relocate to another city, it's worth a look.
  3. Education Service Center Job Pages - includes web sites from regional education service centers that offer district employment networks, enabling one application to work for all the districts they serve, or at least, sharing open positions at school districts. Some of these include the following: 
    1. ASCD Job Ramp
    2. ESC-1 Employment Opportunities
    3. ESC-2 Coastal Bend Application Tracking System
    4. ESC-6
    5. ESC-7 Jobs
    6. ESC-9
    7. ESC-10 Teacher Job Network
    8. ESC-11 DFW Area Application System
    9. ESC-12 
    10. ESC-13 
    11. ESC-14 
    12. ESC-16
    13. ESC-17
  4. TCEA Jobs - Find technology and education related jobs online.
  5. SchoolSpring.com - You'll find jobs on this listing.
  6. Indeed.com Search Engine - Easy to use search engine that enables you to type in your city and type of job you want. For example, here's a search for Educational Technology as well as different one for education.
  7. Texas Cares Online 
  8. Teachers.Net
  9. Education America
  10. Texas NonProfits Job Search
  11. JobNab.com

I have recently taken a job in Juarez just outside of El Paso. I've been reading up on a lot of job sites with tips and other suggestions but decided to just use a technical recruiter instead of directly applying myself. Being in IT also helped locate one easier, perhaps it could help others as well.
