Eastern Michigan University will host annual Teacher Job Fair on April 20

YPSILANTI – More than 125 schools and school districts will scout future teachers at Eastern Michigan University’s annual Teacher Job Fair on Friday, April 20, 2018.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bowen Field House, which is located off Oakwood Street on the main EMU campus.

In order to attend, candidates must have completed one student teaching assignment and be eligible to teach by August, 2018.

The event is free to attend and open to alumni and the public. Doors open at 8 a.m. for check-in and registration, and EMU students should register online through Handshake before April 20.

Candidates are expected to:

  • Dress professionally
  • Bring a pen and notebook
  • Bring several copies of their resume

“Our teacher job fair is the largest in Michigan,” said Michael Sayler, Dean of the College of Education. “The live interviews at the fair often result in job offers on the spot for EMU teacher graduates. Many of the jobs available are in Michigan schools.”

Michigan school districts registered to participate include Ann Arbor, Novi, Wayne-Westland, Dearborn, Battle Creek, Allen Park and Monroe.

As the date of the fair approaches, candidates should download the Fairs App to see participating employers, what positions they are trying to fill, view their booth locations, and create a list of favorite employers.

You can also view registered employers’ information, including their anticipated vacancies, on Handshake.
