2. How do I quickly search for jobs on this site? I don't particularly want to
go into every state/region.
To search for jobs, choose "Job Search" from the top right of every page. The EAN
Job Search is a complete solution to finding a job from the postings we have available.
You can choose the type of job (Teaching / Administrative etc.) and the subject area. You can
then narrow your search further by specifying state and city.
3. How up-to-date are the listings on this site
Our site runs on a database system which removes postings as soon as they are outdated
according to what an employer has specified. As sometimes an employer may forget to
close a position that has been specified as "Open until filled", the process
is not 100% reliable, however, in most cases the jobs you see here are very up-to-date.

10. I can't upload my resume or other documents?
If you are experiencing issues uploading your resume there are typically a couple of reasons.
First, check the size of your documents. There are size restrictions on uploaded documents. No documents should be more than 150k. If you are getting a message that your file is too big try to optimize your document size. For some ideas on optimizing your Word resume click here. Click here to find out how to optimize a PDF document.
A second common problem is that your filename is not compatible with our database structure. If you have a space, too many characters (max of 16) or are using non-alphanumeric characters you will get this type of error. This is easily resolved by simply renaming your file. Keep your filename simple without any non-alphanumeric characters. i.e.
Finally, if you get a message that that a file already exists, simply rename your document and try uploading again. Or, make sure you are not using any non-alphanumeric characters like a ",',-, etc... in the title of your resume. An optimal title for your resume is Resume of Your Name.
