Most educators list "customer service," "professional development," and "product knowledge" as skills on their resumes. We go into more details on the most important educator responsibilities here:
Before becoming an educator, 64.8% earned their bachelor's degree. When it comes down to graduating with a master's degree, 17.3% educators went for the extra education. If you're wanting to pursue this career, it may be possible to be successful with a high school degree. In fact, most educators have a college degree. But about one out of every eight educators didn't attend college at all.
Those educators who do attend college, typically earn either a education degree or a business degree. Less commonly earned degrees for educators include a nursing degree or a psychology degree.
Once you've obtained the level of education you're comfortable with, you might start applying to companies to become an educator. We've found that most educator resumes include experience from Humana, Vivvi, and Cleveland Clinic. Of recent, Humana had 16 positions open for educators. Meanwhile, there are 13 job openings at Vivvi and 7 at Cleveland Clinic.
But if you're interested in companies where you might earn a high salary, educators tend to earn the biggest salaries at Google, Tampa General Hospital, and DaVita. Take Google for example. The median educator salary is $93,659. At Tampa General Hospital, educators earn an average of $88,622, while the average at DaVita is $87,775. You should take into consideration how difficult it might be to secure a job with one of these companies.
We also looked into companies who hire educators from the top 100 educational institutions in the U.S. The top three companies that hire the most from these institutions include SeaWorld, University of California Press, and Baltimore City Public Schools.
