YPSILANTI — Graduating seniors and alumni searching for teaching positions will get a chance to meet with recruiters when Eastern Michigan University hosts the largest teacher job fair in Michigan, Tuesday, April 17, 9 – 4 p.m., at EMU’s Convocation Center, 799 Hewitt, in Ypsilanti. The event is open to the public. The cost is $20 at the door.
More than 425 recruiters from 176 school districts will meet with prospective teachers hoping to land a job. Recruiters are coming from as far away as China, Korea, Japan and British Columbia, and as close as Michigan and Ohio, according to Barbara Jones, corporate relations manager at EMU. Arizona will have representatives from nearly 22 school districts due to its significant growth, said Jones, while urban schools such as New York City and New Orleans will also be in attendance.
“This is an outstanding opportunity for our graduating seniors and alumni to meet with hiring officials and to present their teaching credentials,” said Jones. “We expect more than 1,500 students to participate.”
