Helpful Tips

  • Dress Professionally, bring plenty of resumes, a letter-sized padfolio with notepad and pen, money for food and phone calls, grooming care items and, most important, a positive and confident attitude!! 
  • Check in at the registration/information table! Pick up a nametag and a list of  School Systems attending.  School Systems register late or do not show. Watch for signs posted at the Fair to alert you to this information.
  • Take a few minutes to review materials and prioritize your list of School Systems. 
  • Review School Websites for postiion openings.  Note that many School Systems do not yet know their staffing needs for the fall.
