    So I've been trying to work on a brochure and I've even PM'd some posters that have said they are willing to share, but I haven't had any responses! I am now in DIRE need of help....I just found out today that I will be having surgery on May 23rd, which moves my whole job search "plan of attack" ahead one month. My goal is to have the brochure complete and printed this weekend and then I will spend a day next week hand delivering my resume and brochure....so ANYONE...please help, I am not good with designing things so I need help, I just want to see an good example.

    Thanks for all of your help!!! I know this is last minute! :help:

    Vistaprint.com! Seriously, I had no clue either, am not really artistic, but I used one of their templates and it came out gorgeous! I included a blurb from my ed. philosophy, a little bit about me, my classroom management, and some areas I'm certified in. I also included pictures from various lessons I've taught. Hope that helps!

    If you PM me your email I will send you my brochure I created last year through Vistaprint. It's very easy to do. I paid like $30 for 25 full color brochures with pictures. (You can get them for free too if you don't add the extras).

    Is this a thing? I'd never heard of it before reading these posts...should I have a brochure? What do you do with it?

    I had not heard of doing a brochure before this year either, peach, but I have found a lot of success with mine. I used Vistaprint because of the good reviews it's gotten from posters on this board, and I really think having a brochure has helped me stand out more. I just include one with my packet that I send out to schools after I've applied, and I also include it with the packet I give to people at interviews. Mine is very colorful (but still professional), and I think it's a nice way for schools to see who I am and let my personality shine through a little more than my cream colored cover letter does. :)

    I first heard of it when we had to do it for a college assignment...in 2005! At the time they said you should leave it after you interview, I have had much more success when I mail it WITH my resume/cover letter...I believe it gives me an edge and helps me get into that interview slot.

    I don't know if you still want to see one, but I just made one tonight to bring with me for a second interview. If you wanna see it, just send me your email and I will send it to you!
