    Prepare for the Fair

    • This fair is designed for you to meet and network with representatives from schools and districts hiring educators. This is an important interaction even if it feels brief and is not what you expected.
    • Hiring officers from schools and districts tell us that a positive and confident first impression is important-- even when the interaction is brief.
    • Representatives come from across the state, country and some from international locations.
    • Candidates who are willing to relocate increase their opportunities for job prospects.
    • Dress and act the part; conservative, well-pressed, tailored business attire is your best choice.
    • Bring plenty of résumés. No photocopiers will be available at the fair.
