Social Studies Teacher Resume

A social studies teacher resume is written by a person equipped with good knowledge of the subject and skills to teach students. The resume contains details of the applicant's previous job history along with the details regarding his skills, names of the schools and institutes where he has taught before, period of time for which he has worked at each of such organizations, and other related achievements. All these details should be written in bullet points.

Also, short sentences should be used rather than the long ones to describe your work in each point. The resume follows a particular format and is divided into different headings - starting with objective statement, professional summary, skills, work experience, educational qualifications, achievements, and reference (if any).

Following is a resume sample for you.

This is how a social studies teacher resume is written and complied in a perfect manner. When done writing, make sure to proofread the document at least twice, so that any mistake or error can be filtered and corrected before it reaches the recruiter's hands. Also, make sure that all the details given by you are relevant to the kind of job at hand. Never make the resume too long, as the recruiter won't entertain lengthy resumes on account of shortage of time and many other resumes to read; it will hamper your chances of getting the job.

No fancy stuff should be tried with the resume such as coloring, changing fonts in between, etc. The resume should be uniform, as in, it should have the same font throughout with the same size too. All the names of the companies and people mentioned in the resume should be checked for their accuracy. The contact details must also be confirmed, as these have to be the latest.

Taking care of all these things will help you in writing a good and professional resume as the one that the recruiter wants to see. All the best!
