Understanding Consortium Sites
In the state of Michigan (and others as well), many school districts use consortium sites to share their job openings. These consortiums are divided by county or region within the state. Although the application systems for each consortium site look the same, you will need to complete a profile for each one you’re interested in (for example, if you’re looking in SE Michigan, you might want to join both the Oakland and Wayne county consortium sites). These sites tend to make it difficult to tailor your documents and application for a particular position – don’t stress about that. Just do your best.
Many of these forms are outdated and use “old” language. If you’re unsure of what they’re asking, you are always welcome to connect with your career consultant (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the certification specialist (email@example.com) in the college to help you navigate.
