MISSOULA – The University of Montana will host school districts from a dozen states during its multistate Educators’ Career Fair on Sunday and Monday, April 17-18. The annual event enables teaching candidates, speech-language pathologists and school psychologists to network with regional, national and international school districts.
UM alumni and teacher candidates, as well as members of the general public, 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 17, in the Phyllis J. Washington Education Center. Teacher candidates may attend resume critique sessions until 4:30 p.m. and Montana school district information sessions and an ice cream social until 5 p.m. The Welcome and Strategy Session beginning at 5 p.m. will provide information regarding what to expect at the career fair, including a mock interview between a school administrator and a teacher candidate.
On Monday, April 18, 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 $25, but registration fees are waived for UM teacher candidates and alumni.
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.
