UD’s Project Search education job fair

Project Search

April 20, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Bob Carpenter Sports Center/Convention Center

UD’s Project Search: Careers for Teachers, one of the largest education career fairs on the East Coast, offers opportunities for students, teacher-candidates, and alumni to submit resumes and conduct on-the-spot interviews with school districts for positions as teachers, specialists, and administrators. This year, representatives from over 100 schools and districts are registered to attend. Most of these schools are located in the Mid-Atlantic region, but representatives from schools in Boston, Houston, Las Vegas, and Myrtle Beach also plan to attend.

Students and alumni should register for the fair as soon as possible. Since many employers will conduct on-site interviews at the fair, students and alumni should dress professionally and bring multiple copies of their resume.

For more information about this event, you may visit CEHD’s Student Blog or read last year’s UDaily article on Project Search.
