All registered schools received a separate email on Monday, February 8th with the link and password to access the candidate database.

Frequently Asked Questions


1. Where do I post jobs for Job Fair candidates?
 Instructions on how to complete this were included in your confirmation email. Please refer there for your link and password.
2.How do I see what jobs my school has already posted? How do I edit or delete a job?
 Click here to view all jobs that have been posted for the job fair. Search your school name in the search box. If you see a job your school has posted that you need to edit or delete, please email maria@nysais.org with the Job Position Title & Grade Range for the job. Please be sure to send the message from your school email address. 
3.Do we need to prepare anything beforehand?

Yes. Schools should post all their available positions on the Job Fair Job Board. Instructions on how to complete this were included in your confirmation email. Please refer there for your link and password.

Schools are also strongly encouraged to research the candidates ahead of the job fair. 

4.Can we contact candidates ahead of time and setup interview times? 
 Yes, please do! Contact candidates at any time via email. 
5.What should we bring?
  • A tablecloth and school literature, photographs, hand-outs, etc.
  • A team of two people who are directly responsible for hiring and retention.
  • Pre-printed résumés which you have downloaded from online files.
  • Laptop, tablet or other device to search online candidate files and resumés and to post your job openings on the designated Job Fair2016 electronic job board. 
  • NOTE - there will be no physical, paper bulletin board for posting, nor will there be a message board for candidates. Posting and messaging will be electronic only
6.If my school posts jobs on the NYSAIS Career Opportunities page, will they appear on the Job Fair Board as well?
 No, this is an entirely separate job board from the NYSAIS member school job board. If you are a NYSAIS member school, please feel free to post your jobs in both locations. 
7.How long will we have access to the Job Fair Candidate Database after the event? 

The candidate database will remain online until May 15th. However, we encourage you to search for candidates early (and often). After the job fair, non-registered schools will be given the opportunity to purchase access to the database.
