Why Attend?
Meet with school districts and education-based nonprofits seeking teaching candidates, guidance counselors, principals and other school staff.  Open to all WSU teaching candidates receiving their licensure by Dec. 2016 and all students and alumni interested in non-teaching positions within school districts. (Note: districts are primarily hiring teaching candidates.  If you are not a teaching candidate, please review the list of schools and their open positions within districts.)

  • Interviews
    Districts / organizations will be conducting interviews at the fair.  It is highly recommended that teaching candidates submit a resume to employers prior to the fair to position for a prime interview slot.  District recruiter contact information can be found on the List of Schools webpage.
  • Networking
    No matter what the districts' objectives may be, as an attendee, you can take advantage of speaking with recruiters from a variety of different districts to learn how your teaching goals may / may not fit with their school mission; clarifying your own teaching values, methods and preferred environments.

How do I prepare?

  • Create a one-page resume and print an ample supply (resume help)
  • Review the list of participating employers and research those of interest to you
  • Plan to dress professionally (Career Spot videos Women - Men)
  • If interviewing, use InterviewStream to practice perfecting your interview answers
