1.  Selecting an appropriate format

Select a format that is most common in the teaching industry. The main reason why it is best to use a commonly accepted format is that employers are well versed with the template and can easily find the information they need without any frustration.

Also, make it a point to include all the main sections in the resume. The main sections include heading, aim, education details, work experience, accolades, and affiliations.

2.  Using action keywords

Use keywords that are industry-specific, typical of teaching like ‘age-appropriate teaching’ and ‘informal and formal assessments’. With such keywords, display your ability to assist children in understanding concepts, solving problems, and building critical thinking capabilities and your enthusiasm for meeting the expectations of the school.

This way you are able to direct your Curriculum Vitae toward a particular target. Being vocal about your enthusiasm and passion for teaching will give you an edge over the others.

3. Highlighting your accomplishments

Your accomplishments are the creditable achievements that distinguish you from others, competing with you for the same position. Other things being equal, your CV that highlights appropriately your accomplishments would impress greatly the appointing authority to consider you favorably for the position of early childhood education teacher.

4.  Proofreading your resume

A resume that has several errors is generally considered evidence of shabby work of a shabby candidature. Probably you never even get a call letter for a one-on-one interview. It would be a great pity to be out of the competition even before entering the contest.

Never put your own self at a disadvantage relative to others because of silly mistakes you commit in your resume. Proofread your CV several times and make sure someone else to does it for you with great care.

If you are looking for a job as a kindergarten teacher, the first thing you have to do, therefore, is to create a CV that will impress on your potential employer. A CV can either help you grab a great opportunity or shut the doors for you; if the latter happens, it will be of your own making.

Nothing can be more rewarding than the happy position that you can choose from several job openings. Nothing can be more satisfying than the realization that it is due to your well-written CV.
