A big part of the education job search is providing school districts with a set of reference letters - written by people who can speak positively in support of your candidacy. Making it easy for reference writers to submit their letters, and for you to request your letters be sent to school districts and other organizations is an important aspect of your job search.
Our online reference system, located within "LakerLeads" is accessible 24/7, allows you to choose between confidential and non-confidential letters, lets you know when writers have submitted their letters (allows you to send them reminders), and more. Request to send your letters via email, standard or next day mail, or uploaded to an online job application system, and keep track of your mailing history at the click of a button. You can use this service for your job search, graduate school admissions, volunteer placements, etc. Start your account today!
You may want to check out our handout on "Letters of Reference." We write about the process of obtaining good references, the critical face-to-face meeting with the author, etc.
