A Day to Display: Reverse Career Fair Set for February 4


Career Services will be hosting the Education Fair, a Reverse Career Fair, for December 2014 alumni and Spring 2015 teacher candidates on February 4 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

What is a Reverse Career Fair, you may ask. It is “turned tables” on a Career Fair, where candidates set up display tables and the recruiters are the ones whom walk around, having the opportunity to view displays and talk with presenters.

Teacher candidates will have the opportunity to showcase their skills, experience, creativity, and personality. A list of school systems attending can be found here. Reverse Career Fair set up will take place on Tuesday, February 3 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Those wishing to attend must pre-register for this event.
