Talent Recruitment System

The Louisiana Department of Education’s Talent Recruitment System is a free, web-based service that pairs job-seeking educators with Louisiana districts/schools seeking to hire them. To join the Talent Recruitment System you must first create an employment profile. After creating your employment profile you are able to notify specific districts of your interest in working there. Additionally, as your profile preferences match to specific job vacancies posted to the Teach LA website you will receive automated email notifications informing you of these job opportunities. When you notify a district in your interest in working there, as well as when your profile matches to a job vacancy, your employment profile will become viewable to that particular hiring authority.
