 Tips for Attending

  • Register to attend the fair or networking event.
  • Know before you go that the goal of these events is networking; rarely does instant hiring take place.
  • Take multiple copies of your resume.
  • Carry lunch, snack, water, and copy center money. Carry a briefcase or portfolio with pens, highlighters, and room to store resumes and applications.
  • Take a portfolio, work sample, or sample lesson.
  • Patience really IS a virtue…be prepared to spend time standing in lines for the opportunity for 2-3 minutes of networking time with an administrator.
  • Approach each discussion with a school district representative as you would an interview.
  • Review the list of participating school districts ahead of time. Plan and prepare for conversations with representatives from these districts.
  • Wear comfortable, yet appropriate, attire (“corporate dress” is appropriate).
  • Send thank you notes to the school district representatives with whom you meet.
