Why should YOU attend? Read Employer Feedback:

“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.” 
  - 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 retunr to our resumes from career fairs.” 
  - Assistant Director of HR, Columbia County School District

To register for the UGA VIRTUAL Mary Frances Early College of Education Career Fair:

  • Log in to your Handshake account, click on Events, and select the “virtual” and “career fairs” filters.
  • Register for the fair. Your registration is required to sign up for group sessions (30 minutes) and 1:1 sessions (10 minutes) with employers.
  • Set your Handshake account privacy settings to “COMMUNITY” to sign up for group and 1:1 sessions with employers. You can do this by clicking on your photo or initials in the top right corner of Handshake and selecting “Settings & Privacy”.

Create your schedule to connect with employers:

  • Once registered, check out “Available sessions” for employers attending the fair.
  • Should you notice a large number of "Employer has no sessions available.", please check back to review available sessions since employers may still be in the process of posting their group and 1:1 sessions to Handshake.
  • To narrow your search, click on “All filters”.

Strategy: Consider finding those employers of most interest to you first to schedule 1:1 sessions (1:1 sessions last 10 minutes).

FYI: You may sign up for group sessions or 1:1 sessions with employers up to one minute before the session on the day of the fair, but we encourage you to plan ahead to ensure that there are open slots
