Job opportunities for teachers
April 16, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Job opportunities for teachers will be showcased during Western Michigan University's 21st annual Teacher Education Career Fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, April 20, in the East Ballroom of the Bernhard Center.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is designed to recruit teachers for K-12 educational systems for the 2009-10 academic year and to provide information about WMU's graduate-school opportunities.
This year's event will feature recruiters representing more than 85 school districts in Michigan and 17 other states as well as China and Korea. Candidates for teaching positions do not need to preregister for the fair, but should dress in interview attire and bring a sufficient supply of resumes to distribute to prospective employers.
Sponsors for the 2009 Education Career Fair include MEEMIC Insurance Co., Enterprise rent-a-car, and WMU's College of Education and Career and Student Employment Services. Volunteering to help out at the event are members of such WMU organizations as ROTC, Drive Safe Kalamazoo, the Kappa Delta Pi International Honors Society for Educators, and the Science and Mathematics Teacher Association.
