UK Career Center to Host Kentucky Teachers Network Career Fair
LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 13, 2014) — Education majors, recent graduates and teachers from Kentucky and surrounding states will have the opportunity to network with representatives from close to 40 school districts at the Kentucky Teachers Network Career Fair at the University of Kentucky.
The James W. Stuckert Career Center will host the event in collaboration with Eastern Kentucky University and other Kentucky colleges and universities from 3:30-6 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, in the UK Student Center Grand Ballroom. The career fair is free to participants.
This one day recruiting event expects to attract representatives from school districts mainly from Kentucky, but also from Cincinnati, Ohio; Charleston, S.C.; Indiana; and as far away as Alaska, who seek to hire upcoming graduates and alumni.
Bill Hogan, assistant superintendent of Carroll County School District said, "I really look forward to meeting the future educators of Kentucky public schools that attend this joint teacher fair. The candidates I meet are well prepared for the classroom, and I am excited to return this year."
Participants are encouraged to dress professionally and to bring at least 20 copies of their resume.
According to Lenroy Jones, associate director of the Stuckert Career Center, all upcoming graduates interested in education are welcome at the fair. "Although school districts are targeting education majors who are completing their certification, I would encourage students who are graduating and interested in education to attend."
