How do you fill job openings for coaches? Where does your school district post the positions? How did you hear about the position you now hold? How does your district treat your position?
I got into my position by receiving an email from a fellow coach. I'm not sure where he saw it.
I did notice recently that one of the area schools advertises it's coaching positions, for all sports and all positions, each year as one big blanket job advertisement per season and coaches who are interested in returning the next season have to apply right along with new applicants. What is your perspective on that strategy? It looks to me like an organization with zero loyalty toward its members or major legal issues and a baby-bathwater solution.
askFRED always seemed like the best place to host a job listing for fencing coaches. I sent the idea using their submission form, but to no avail. There will probably never be an askFRED mobile app either.
