"online," "professional development," and "procedures" aren't the only skills we found instructors list on their resumes. In fact, there's a whole list of instructor responsibilities that we found, including:
Before becoming an instructor, 57.9% earned their bachelor's degree. When it comes down to graduating with a master's degree, 17.3% instructors 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 instructors have a college degree. But about one out of every eight instructors didn't attend college at all.
The instructors who went onto college to earn a more in-depth education generally studied business and psychology, while a small population of instructors studied english and nursing.
Once you've obtained the level of education you're comfortable with, you might start applying to companies to become an instructor. We've found that most instructor resumes include experience from Univ Of Colorado-Colorado Spgs, Life Fitness, and Brunswick. Of recent, Univ Of Colorado-Colorado Spgs had 28 positions open for instructors. Meanwhile, there are 23 job openings at Life Fitness and 22 at Brunswick.
But if you're interested in companies where you might earn a high salary, instructors tend to earn the biggest salaries at Lockheed Martin, University School, and Lam Research. Take Lockheed Martin for example. The median instructor salary is $80,026. At University School, instructors earn an average of $78,326, while the average at Lam Research is $75,565. You should take into consideration how difficult it might be to secure a job with one of these companies.
If you earned a degree from the top 100 educational institutions in the United States, you might want to take a look at University of California Press, Indiana University Northwest, and ESL Federal Credit Union. These three companies have hired a significant number of instructors from these institutions.
