Indeed Joins White House Call to Action to Address Current Shortages in Our Education System

 

 

AUSTIN, TX (August 31, 2022) Indeed, a leading global hiring platform, is joining the White House call to action to address the current shortage of education workers in the United States. Indeed has committed to hosting a series of hiring events to help public schools hire teachers, administrators, counselors, and other school staff.  

Indeed’s mission is to help people find jobs. As of August 2022, job postings on Indeed in the education sector were up 55% compared to February 2020. However, school districts throughout the country are reporting difficulty in filling open roles.

“As a former public school teacher, I know how important education is to prepare kids for their future. I also know that education requires dedicated educators. Indeed is honored to help solve the current shortage of teachers, administrators, and other education workers. We are excited to put our mission of helping people get jobs into action to rebuild the education workforce,” said Chris Hyams, Indeed CEO.

Participating educational institutions will gain access to Indeed’s suite of hiring solutions to efficiently manage the hiring process, from job postings through interviews. Indeed will also commit to at least $10 million of free job advertising to support hiring events for educators and provide free resources and insights through our Career Guide and the Indeed Hiring Lab
