WHAT TIME DOES THE EDUCATOR'S JOB FAIR BEGIN?
We will start promptly at 2:00 p.m. for all pre-registered candidates.
On-site registrants will not be admitted until 3:00 p.m. The job fair ends at 6:00 p.m.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE JOB FAIR?
Representatives from schools, districts, and non-profits/for profits will be there to speak with candidates about their anticipated needs and their interests and qualifications. Representatives will be located at tables in a large exhibition hall. Candidates will be able to speak with employers briefly on a first come ¿ first served basis. After these initial conversations, some employers will schedule individual interviews. Other representatives will only be collecting resumes and noting first impressions for their use in selecting candidates for interviewing at a later date. We encourage you to branch out in your search throughout the day.
PROFESSIONALISM & PREPARATION
Candidates must dress business professional (as you would for an interview). It may be that your only contact with a particular employer will be limited to a short discussion at a table, or an unscheduled chance meeting some other time during the day. Remember that your discussions should be equally as professional as they would be during a fully scheduled employment interview. Please seek your career center for resume, cover letter, and interview coaching prior to attending this fair.
WHAT IF I DID NOT REGISTER, WILL I BE TURNED AWAY?
No one is turned away from registering on-site. Non-Temple students/alumni wull need to bring $15 (cash only) and submit one copy of your resume at check in. Bring plenty of other resumes for the recruiters. No ATM machines are available.
Non-Temple Students will park at the Liacouras Garage. A separate email confirmation closer to the date will provide Non-Temple students with a passcode for parking.
Temple students are responsible for the payment for parking on campus, should you choose to drive to campus. Please note that the non-Temple student fee covers parking expenses for those students.
