Prior to the Job Fair

All schools participating in the job fair should be sure to post their available positions in the job fair job board and to review the candidate database. Information regarding posting available jobs was included in your confirmation message when you purchased your table. Please refer to this email (sent to the registrant) for your link and password.
Candidate Resumés:
  • Usernames and passwords will be emailed to the school's contact person listed on the registration form. Access to the online pre-registered candidate resumés database will begin in Mid-February.
  • The contact person, designated on the registration form, will receive the access information 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.
  • School representatives receive passwords and database access in mid-February, review resumés online before the Job Fair. Schools are responsible for researching the resumés and printing them if desired.
  • These files will be available online until May 15.
All registered schools received a separate email 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. It has 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 as far in advance as possible. Instructions on how to complete this were included in your confirmation email along with 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 set up 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 another device to search online candidate files and resumés and to post your job openings on the Job Fair electronic job board. 
  • NOTE - there will be a physical, paper bulletin board for posting as well.
6.If my school posts jobs on the NYSAIS Career Opportunities page, will they appear on the Job Fair Board as well?
 No, they are two separate, non-communicating job boards. If you are a NYSAIS member school, please do post your jobs in both locations for maximum visibility. 
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.
