Careers for Business Professionals in the Education Sector

A career in education is rewarding and fulfilling on a professional and personal level. As a teacher, educational assistant or principal, you can see the impact that your work has on the lives of students and their families.

But it's not just the educators and staff that work directly with students that can make a difference. Business professionals can have a significant impact on the school community and on the lives of staff that work directly with students and their families.

We often forget that behind the scenes, there are teams of professionals in human resources, communications and community relations, accounting and finance, and information technology whose work affects student outcomes indirectly.

In most literature, you'll hear that teachers have the most significant impact on student learning and their self-esteem. To get that teacher into the classroom, there are human resources professionals that travel to career fairs, interview teachers and review hundreds of resumes to find the best candidate. Without their work, that special teacher does not find their way into the classroom. This is example is just one of many ways through which the work of non-teaching business professionals can impact student learning and the school community.

If you're looking to make a difference in the education sector, impact the community you live in, work for an organization you can stand behind while receiving a competitive salary, comprehensive benefits, and an excellent pension plan, consider a career in education.
