Southern Teachers: Virtual Interviews

Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Southern Teachers is holding virtual interviews for OSU students who are interested in teaching jobs at great K-12 private/independent schools.

The official application period closed last night, but there are still a couple interview slots available. Any students who are interested should send their resume to Maggie Goodman at Recruiter@SouthernTeachers.com. Alternatively, interested students may sign up to speak with a Southern Teachers rep at their Recruiting Office Hours (Thursdays, 1:00-3:30pm).


Southern Teachers helps college graduates find great jobs in college-preparatory schools around the South.

The teaching environment in these private/independent schools can be wonderful because of their small class sizes, their college-bound students, and their close-knit communities. At independent schools, quality isn’t just about test scores and college acceptances; it’s also the unique way that teachers maximize the potential of their students.

While successful progress through a teacher-education program is essential for some of these jobs (e.g., for elementary teachers), for many positions a teaching certificate is not required. Math majors can be hired to teach math; Spanish majors can teach Spanish, etc. Candidates do, however, need a strong academic record and the personal characteristics that will enable them to manage and motivate K-12 students. To summarize:  Teacher certification is not required for most jobs.

Pfizer R&D Rotational Program

The Pfizer R&D Rotational Program is designed to immerse early career colleagues into the pharmaceutical R&D business through a 2-year program composed of four unique 6-month job rotations in diverse disciplines. Each rotation will involve meaningful assignments and projects, mentorship and coaching, and collaborative interactions to develop business acumen and technical expertise and set participants on the path to success.

This in-depth training and skills development program offers participants the opportunity to gain experience and insight into drug discovery and development from leading scientists, clinicians, statisticians, epidemiologists, and professionals, and to bridge from student to industry professional, or into an advanced-degree program.

R&D Rotational Program associates will be hired as full-time employees for the duration of the two-year program, with salary and benefits commensurate with their level of education and experience.

Pfizer launched this program for promising science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) college graduates, with a focus on underrepresented minorities, African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American, to shape the future of science and healthcare.

Students can apply during the fall semester of their senior year and will be expected to start the program in June, following graduation. To apply for the Spring 2022 program, click here.
