Why should YOU attend? Read Employer Feedback:

“There is nothing better than a face to face interview and taking advantage of making a lasting impression. You might hit it off with the interviewer and when a position opens up, they remember the ones they liked during the short time they visited with you. I have hired 4 -5 people from the UGA Teacher Job Fair and most of them were after the day, but I remembered how much I enjoyed talking to them during the short visit to the table. Nothing like face to face time.” 
  - Principal, St. Pius X Catholic High School 

“Recruitment days are always a good idea ...it is an opportunity to meet recruiters/school districts and when looking for a specific area we always return to our resumes from career fairs.” 

 - Assistant Director of HR, Columbia County School District
