Teacher Recruitment Fair is county’s largest gathering of school district recruiters in one location — April 26
The 14th Annual Kern County Teacher Recruitment Fair is scheduled to take place Saturday, April 26 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Larry E. Reider Education Center, 2000 K Street in Bakersfield. Individuals who are fully credentialed or will be intern-eligible by August of 2014 are invited to attend.
Sponsored by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools Office, the event is the county’s largest gathering of school district recruiters in one location. It is an excellent opportunity for those who are credentialed or intern eligible to see what positions or anticipated future openings may be available in the 2014-2015 school year.
Districts are interested in meeting individuals who hold multiple subject, special education, speech pathologist, school nurse, school psychologist, and single subject credentials.
“The Teacher Recruitment Fair is organized each year to ensure that school districts have the opportunity to recruit fully-qualified teachers for their programs,” said Desiree Von Flue, KCSOS Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services. “Even though a district may not currently have openings, they must be prepared to fill unanticipated teacher vacancies created due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances.”
All eligible individuals are encouraged to pre-register online at: www.kern.org/recruitmentfair
The online pre-registration deadline is April 20 at 5 p.m.
Pre-registered attendees will be allowed into the event at their scheduled time and will be allotted one hour to meet with as many districts as possible. Available time slots are 8:15 a.m., 9:35 a.m., and 10:55 a.m. Non-registered attendees should report to the event no earlier than 10:30 a.m. for onsite registration. Admittance will be determined by occupancy.
Photocopying services will not be available on the day of the event. Resume and credential copies are not required. However, attendees may bring them to distribute at their discretion. During the event, districts may request completion of an on-site or an on-line application.
