The Educator Recruitment Expo facilitates a connection between educational agencies and individuals interested in pursuing employment in the field of education. This event is for school districts, education services and agencies recruiting for full-time, part-time, internship, or volunteer positions. Highly qualified credentialed and non-credentialed educators attend the event. Participants include education related majors from all class levels, alumni, and community members. The focus of the Educator Recruitment Expo is on graduating students seeking full-time professional positions. However, we educate students to begin their research early to prepare for the time they will graduate and begin their job searches. Therefore, you will see employee candidates, as well as those seeking information about your businesses and services.
