I am certified in both P-3 and Special Ed. What are good websites to look for teaching jobs in NJ?
GOOGLE IT or check out the Jersey State School districts' websites. I'm pretty sure they will hook you up with the needed info.

you have to pay for njhire now to apply for jobs trough them. i mostly just check individual school websites and the newspaper.
Paying for NJHire?
That is ridiculous!

apparently they lost their funding. this isnt surprising with the current state of aducation in nj!

No, it's not ridiculous. It's outrageous, corrupt and scandolous!
If you look at their "fee schedule", you could easily end up paying hundreds, even thousands of dollars, before you even get an interview, and that doesn't guarantee a job. Obviously, I'm not talking about the Employers paying a dime, I'm talking about the Job Seeker paying. Obviously, in a State with easily 20%-30% underemployment and unemployment, it ends up being the unemployed job seeker paying what are truely outragous amounts of money PER RESUMES SENT! Yes... per resumes sent!
Under our new Republican Governor, NJ has officially become:
"The Mafia State".
Why don't they just break my legs, like they used to, and get it over with? I might even end up paying less, if mending my legs was the cost of getting a teaching job.
This is truly unreal. Obviously, NJHIRE is not the only site in town, and I've found other sources. However, NJHIRE has been the biggest player in this State, and School Districts and Schools, despite having their own Web Sites, do not host their own Web Pages to accept resumes. (Other sites do that. And as far as the
District is concerned, why would they even be aware of NJHIRE having just become a pay per resumes sent site, not free to Job Seekers! Obviously, the Schools will continue to use NJHIRE, leaving the Job Seeker to their own resources to find a job without going broke!)
Perhaps it would be more appropriate to call NJ "The Stupid State".
After all, we elected the guy that cut the funding to NJHIRE.

It isn't the same, but you might want to try this:
That at least lists SOME school districts, but you'd have to go to each site and check for a job on their applitrack
I never paid. I just look up the jobs that are opened and if you click on it, there is usually contact info and I walked my resume packet into the principal's office. You can still look up jobs for free, just don't apply through them.
That's crazy that you have to pay now!!!!
I also like www.njschooljobs.com. I've also used www.nj.com in the classifieds, but you don't to read through a lot to find some that apply to you at times.
Also look at individual websites for districts.
Also check the 'Star Ledger' newspaper...they may have their employment opportunity listings online. Many many school districts place openings in this paper.
My FI was job hunting this year and 75% of the jobs he saw on NJHIRE could not even be viewed without paying. I think it's a crime to charge people to view a job posting.

That really is terrible.
I am glad I was searching for a job before this because NJHire is actually how I found my current job and I didn't have to pay to find it there.
