What YOU should do
UPDATE YOUR RESUME!!!
If possible, get a copy of your transcript (many of our divisions now require a certified copy once you formally
apply for a position but will accept a copy the day of the Job Fair)
link to "Universal Job Application"
Download, complete and make multiple copies of the Universal Job Application (click on link);
although not accepted by some divisions as a formal application document, it is accepted by the divisions
that will be in attendance and is a great way to compile the information in one place for referencing
should you decide to complete any of their on-line applications
Prepare to meet and greet HR representatives from multiple school divisions!!!
Glance at the division websites to familiarize yourself with their recruiting methods.
(suggested but not required)
Registration is open -- please use the link below to pre-register.
If you register in advance on-line, you will be required to "check in" once you arrive at the
Job Fair allowing your information to be retained in the database for future use by
HR staff in the attending school divisions.
We do NOT schedule appointment times so allow plenty of time to
visit with as many divisions as possible!
Pre-registration is NOT required and you CAN come to the Job Fair and register on-site.
What happens AFTER the Job Fair
Attendance at the Job Fair is required for your information to remain in our database.
The HR staff will access this database in the future when seeking qualified candidates

It is important to note that Division websites will be updated periodically as job postings become available.
So, please continue to check the division websites you are interested in over the coming months.
