The career outlook for special education teachers is actually slower than the average predicted for all jobs in the nation, expected to grow only 6% before the year 2022 according the Bureau of Labor Statistics. With these challenges in mind, you should take your on-campus resources seriously before graduation: be sure to schedule appointments with career counselors to learn about local job boards, review your resume, practice interview questions, and polish your social media presence. Your state’s Department of Education site can be an excellent place to start searching for a job, along with career listings provided by special education professional societies, some of which are listed below.
