The Star Tea Process

Blue Star Virtual Learning (BSVL) has a unique way of scouting talent for our professional team. We call it "The Star Tea Process". We highly recommended you do not skim this page, but read and contemplate on all that is shared before proceeding. 

 

First we choose to primarily "head hunt" from members actively engaged in our community going forward. This is because we are seeking individuals who sincerely align to our mission and understand the benefits of being in our community as either a family utilizing our services or an educator choosing to serve and offer their expertise. Upon completion of the process, we determine if we can work well together as colleagues or if it is best for you to offer your services as a volunteer.

 

Current Opportunity

 

Academic ManagerThis is a career gateway position which means we are seeking candidates who want to focus on growing Blue Star Virtual Learning as an international brand and develop professionally long term with our team. This position is not ideal for those only looking for side streams of revenue or find it necessary to work multiple jobs. Our Executive Team has made a conscious decision to no longer bring on or retain team members with overextended schedules. Therefore, only pursue a relationship with us if you have a stable schedule that can devote a minimum of 10 hours a week (to start) Monday-Saturday anytime between 7am-8pm. Colleagues create their own schedules. If team members choose to increase their caseloads they are responsible for increasing their weekly hours.

 

Role Description: Academic Managers are responsible for directly supporting our students (PreK to Adults) by providing weekly outreach communications, progress reports, and academic guidance in the four major core subject areas of Math, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. Colleagues at this position must be tech savvy, comfortable using platforms like Zoom and Google Classroom (or can learn quickly independently). They are detailed orientated and able to provide deliverables in a timely and consistent manner. They have a professional home office free from distractions and working computer hardware and high speed Internet. Starting pay for Academic Managers is an established monthly base rate (to be discussed over tea) to manage a caseload of up to 30 learners. Team members can expand that monthly pay as more accounts are accrued by the company at 15% residual on each account.

Basic Professional Requirements for Academic Managers:

1) Minimum Post Secondary Certification, Bachelor Degree, or professional experience equivalent (example fours years of homeschool teaching experience).

2) Two years of professional experience

3) Three Professional References

4) Legally eligible to serve as an independent contractor in the United States

5) Able to pass a criminal background check and drug screening

Next Steps

 

After completing this "Tea Screener" (please click the highlighted hyperlink to view) our team will review your credentials in hopes you would be interested in exploring working together. Candidates are invited to two virtual teas with members of our leadership team designed to allow selected applicants to learn how we vibe within our unique company culture. This is a relaxed and informal conversation among prospective colleagues, so if selected let your personality shine through. We tend to attract education visionaries and exceptional professionals seeking a platform to be of positive service, so in time we will all discern if we are in alignment.

 

Please note that all positions at BSVL are contractor positions that require team members to file a 1099 tax form and work from home in a professional office space.

Interested candidates please submit all the following items: Tea Screener, Cover Letter (with your current address and stating why you wish to pursue the position of interest) and updated Resume to melissa@bluestarvl.com.
