What is it?

The Friday Evening Star is an email blast sent every Friday at 5:00 pm ET that consists of a simple digest of that week’s new administrative opportunities.  It’s sent to over 35,000 educators across the country, and the remarkable bit is that over 30% of the recipients open it each week!


For Schools

We select the listings that appear in the Star from the administrative jobs that schools have posted with Southern Teachers.  It’s a free service for schools and one of the most powerful advertising venues available for independent schools in the South that are seeking administrative talent.  Even candidates not actively seeking new positions enjoy reading the Star every Friday afternoon.


For Candidates

It’s been a long week, but you know the weekend has arrived when the Star hits your inbox.  You’re probably not looking for a new job, but you may know the perfect person for one of the listed positions.  Shooting the Star to your acquaintances may help a school find the new leader they badly need.  And your friends can subscribe to the Star, as well.  It’s free!
