Education majors: Act NOW

Attention education majors: Today is the day—the last day to register for the Educators’ Employment Fair, that is.

More than 30 employers will be available to take eager and upcoming UNK graduates’ resumes and cover letters, or maybe even squeeze in an interview or two, on Tuesday, March 30, at the Nebraskan Student Union.

“This is a great opportunity for UNK education majors to meet employers, network and job search,” said Mary Daake, UNK Office of Academic and Career Services director. “Employers are from all areas of the United States including Alaska, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota and Texas.”

The fair will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration can be made by contacting the UNK Office of Academic and Career Services at 308-865-8501 or going to http://www.unk.edu/edfair.

“The demand for teachers is based on their degree and endorsements,” Daake said. “For example, some endorsements have a higher demand than others and depending on where the candidate wants to position themselves (live) in the United States, the region will impact the surplus/demand of their hiring potential.”

Not graduating anytime soon? No problem. The Educators’ Employment fair is looking for volunteers to greet employers, help them find their booth, set up/tear down, along with other various tasks. Those who volunteer for one hour will have the opportunity to fill out a “volunteer vitals” form to encourage networking. This form includes work experience, volunteer activities and student organizations, all important to employers for references. It never hurts to start early.
