Educators Invited to Multistate Career Fair at UM

April 09, 2015

MISSOULA – The University of Montana will host the Multistate Educators’ Career Fair – an event enables teaching candidates, speech-language pathologists and school psychologists to network with regional, national and international school districts – on Sunday and Monday, April 19-20. 

Junior-level education students also are invited to attend the fair to network with school administrators for student teaching positions and to learn about school districts.

Teacher candidate registration begins at noon Sunday, April 19, in the Phyllis J. Washington Education Center. Teacher candidates may attend Montana school district information sessions, an ice cream social and resume critique sessions until 5 p.m. The Welcome and Strategy Session will provide information regarding what to expect at the career fair, and will include a mock interview between a school administrator and a teacher candidate.

On Monday, April 20, a record number of school districts will participate in a traditional multistate career fair. Out-of-state school districts will host information sessions from 8 to 10 a.m. in the University Center. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., school districts will greet, network with and interview teacher candidates. The fair costs $10 for UM teacher candidates and UM alumni and $25 for the general public.

School districts and teacher candidates can register, view a list of attending school districts and find a schedule of events online at http://www.umt.edu/career/CareerFairs/EducatorsCF/default.php.
