School Information

This year’s Job Fair will be in person. Each registered school will receive a table to inform candidates about their school, list vacancies, and chat with candidates.

Please read all School Information before attending the fair!

Registration is now open


When can we access candidate resumes?

Access to the online pre-registered candidate résumés database will begin in mid-February.

The contact person, designated as the attendee during registration, will receive the information about registering for an account to access the candidate database and is responsible for distributing that information to the members of their school who share in the hiring responsibilities.

Resumés are cross-referenced by discipline/ administrative interest, grade level, and geographic preference.

Schools are responsible for researching the resumés and printing them if desired.

These files will be available online until May 15.
