To bring lasting systemic change to the education sector by revolutionizing the way education organizations and professionals connect for meaningful non-teaching jobs.
All children deserve access to an excellent and equitable education that prepares them for a successful life of their choosing. But our system is failing to achieve this vision. Certain students, especially students of color, are disproportionately underserved. To reach this vision, we need the right talent in the right roles within our education organizations that are performing this mission-critical work every day.
What We Believe In
Matching the Right Talent with the Right Organization and Role
Motivated and talented people are essential for an organization to achieve its goals and maximize its impact. By matching the right talent with the right organizations and roles, we help drive education reform forward.
Equity in Education
Every child should have access to an excellent and equitable education that is worthy of their promise and that equips them to unlock the potential within. Children deserve the opportunity to succeed, regardless of circumstances.
Harnessing the Power of Technology and Data
By centralizing jobseekers on a common platform and gathering detailed information, we make the hiring process faster, easier, less expensive, and more effective through the power of our algorithms combined with our deep sector expertise.
Work can, and should, be purposeful, fulfilling, and rewarding
Too many people settle for a mediocre job. We believe that people should believe in the purpose behind their work, find it meaningful and enjoyable, and be fairly compensated.
Every individual is uniquely gifted
Every individual, without exception, is uniquely gifted and able to contribute value to society.
A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Research shows that strong teams are diverse, equitable and inclusive; this is especially important in the education sector given the diversity of the students, families, and communities that we serve.
The WorkMonger Story
Matching the right opportunity with the right person in the education sector can be challenging. Similarly, finding a meaningful job in education can be difficult. While technology has made it easier for JobSeekers and Employers to connect, information overload presents a new problem. Too many options, too many resumes, and too much information can make the process overwhelming.
By harnessing the power of data and technology, we created WorkMonger to break down the barriers that separate great organizations and great people. WorkMonger makes it easier, faster, and less expensive to find that perfect match.
We know how to spot talent and we know education. Every one of our team members has first-hand experience in education. This positions us to most effectively understand and meet your needs.
