FAQ

Why am I not having any luck finding a teacher?

In a word: COVID. These are tough times to be recruiting teachers. Montessori teachers are a rare breed to begin with, and those who are looking for new jobs may not be willing to come back into the classroom quite yet due to health and safety concerns. Make your job posting as attractive as possible and be honest about how tough these times are. Let job seekers know that you’re taking COVID seriously and add to your post information about the safety precautions that you’re taking. If you offer an attractive salary, say so; this will help bring in more candidates. If you’re in a less populated area and expect that you’ll need someone to likely relocate, consider offering relocation assistance. Consider multiple ways that can help you attract the person you’re looking for during these difficult times.

Who can post a job on this site?

The MontessoriJobs.com website is intended to be used by Montessori schools, Montessori organizations (such as membership organizations, teacher organizations, training centers, etc.), and those search for jobs with these entities. This site is not intended for head-hunters, staffing companies, or recruiters and ads posted from these types of organizations will be deleted without notice or refund.

Why do you charge for job postings now?

For many years, MontessoriJobs offered a completely free service. There are two main reasons that we have shifted to a pay model. First, spammers and hackers were destroying our website. Because the site was free, spammers were filling up the job board with everything from pharmaceutical sales to car auctions to inappropriate and offensive content. By shifting to a paid model, the spammers will go away and the quality of the content will drastically improve.

Second, the site grew bigger than we expected. This is a great problem to have, but with growth meant a new design, new software, new features, bigger servers, more bandwidth, and improved staff management. Just like you, we need to pay the bills too. We hope you find our prices to be fair and reasonable, and far less than other job boards or your local newspaper.

How much does it cost?

Please view pricing here.

What payment methods do you accept?

At this time, our site is integrated with secure payment processor PayPal.  At time of payment, you will be redirected to Paypal and can either pay using your PayPal account, or with a valid credit card.  Read about PayPal security here.

Do you offer refunds?

Not typically. Please understand that there are no guarantees that you will find a candidate for your open position. There are too many factors at play in the complicated world of recruiting. Supply and demand, timing, location, salary, varying requirements for education, training and experience, and the list goes on. We hope that you are successful, but can’t provide a refund if you aren’t.

How do I post a job?

Job posters must first create a free account. Once your account is created, you will be able to begin the process of posting a job. Once your job is ready and you have a chance to preview, you will be asked to choose a payment option for your posting. When payment is made, your job will be posted to the website.

Where can I see who has applied for my job posting?

Please keep in mind that the majority of job seekers will read your job post and then go find your website. They will often email you directly with their interest and resume through your website or email address listed on your website. The feature that allows you to view applicants on the MontessoriJobs website won’t always be reflective of the interest in your posting.

You can view your active jobs posted on this page: https://www.montessorijobs.com/employer-panel/jobs-active/ (only when you are logged in).  Located the small “gear” icon on the right of the page with a blue arrow embedded in the icon (see screenshot below).  Clicking on this will open a drop down menu with one of the choices being “applicants”.  You will be able to see applicants and their resumes from there.

What happened to my job/resume posting, it’s not there anymore?
