Teacher Career Fair connects CBU students with potential job opportunities
Riverside, Calif. (March 12, 2020) – Students interested in pursuing careers in K-12 education received the opportunity to meet recruiters from more than 55 schools, nonprofit organizations and school districts at the Teacher Career Fair at California Baptist University on March 11.
Schools were looking to fill a variety of positions such as teachers, speech language pathologists, school counselors and coaches.
“This event provides numerous opportunities to meet recruiters from all over Southern and Northern California,” said Lisa Singer, associate director of employer relations. “This is one of the unique fairs where many times candidates are interviewed and offered contracts during the fair.”
Paige Vaughan, an education graduate student, attended the event seeking a position as an elementary teacher.
“Having this event on campus is less nerve-racking and more comfortable,” Vaughan said. “With a wide-range of school districts and employers, I have access to more leads and opportunities.”
Kaden Specht, a liberal studies senior, prepared for the event by visiting the Career Center to revise his resume and LinkedIn profile.
“Through this event, I am able to network and get exposure and when talking to the different schools, I am able to have an idea of what they are looking for and what to expect as a future substitute teacher,” Specht said.
