Each spring, the School of Education and Career Services collaborate to offer teachers and counselors personal time with over 40 public and private schools.
The Career Fair for spring 2019 is on March 20th and runs from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Interviews will be held between 2:30-7:00 p.m.
This year, there are two types of interviews: Pre-Select and Room Only. The only interviews you'll actually apply for are the Pre-Select Interviews, as those schools want to pre-screen and pre-schedule their interviews.
The Room Only schedule option was selected by districts that want to schedule students for interviews on-site, so you'll need to attend the Career Fair between 2:00-5:00 p.m. to request an interview with those districts.
Please review the detailed instructions on how to apply for a Pre-Select interview with participating districts. All applications will be submitted using Handshake. The deadline to apply is February 28, 2019.
