Things to Know

  • Links to the participating school districts are available at: https://psu-csm.symplicity.com/events/students.php?cf=ftf2013.   Review this information and know which district representatives you would like to meet.
  • While the Job Fair brings many hiring officials to campus, it also attracts HUNDREDS of teacher candidates seeking a limited number of positions. Do NOT use this event as your sole source for securing a job. During previous events, inexperienced job seekers have expressed frustration about the number of candidates competing with them for interviews. Unprepared candidates will feel overwhelmed.  Because of the large number of participants, you may have to wait to speak with a recruiter. Please be patient and courteous.

Helpful Hints

  • Many districts will be scheduling interviews during the first hour.  Early arrival is recommended.
  • Take advantage of the opportunity to speak with as many school officials as possible. Don't limit yourself geographically - you may be surprised!
  • Do not expect a job offer during the Job Fair. This is part of the screening process. However, it is your opportunity to make a good first impression.
  • Dress professionally. You will be standing in line, so wear comfortable shoes and don't carry a lot of excess baggage.
  • Bring plenty of quality resumes, pens and pencils to the event.
  • Follow up with the districts in which you are interested.

This event is co-sponsored by Lock Haven University and The Pennsylvania State University
