How does the event work?
We recommend you create a “game plan” prior to attending the event, which will enable you to know which school districts you would like to target first. We will provide a list of school districts attending the event, which you can access here when it is available. A layout map of the school districts will become available closer to the event date.
Ensure you have printed your receipt prior to the event and bring your receipt to present as admission to the event.
On Tuesday, October 27th, free parking is available in designated parking areas. Parking lots A, B, & C.
Even though the event is advertised to begin at 10 AM, we recommend candidates arrive between 9:00-10:00 AM in order to lineup for entrance to the event. Admittance to the event is first-come, first-served.
The doors to Teacher Employment Days will open at 10 AM. Once the doors are open, candidates will approach school districts of their choice to either schedule job interviews and/or participate in “meet-and-greets.” Meet-and-greet interactions may lead to interviews.
Candidates should expect to interview for jobs onsite; as such, candidates should be prepared to interview with potential noise and foot-traffic distractions. Please also note candidates are responsible for keeping their own schedule of interviews, each of which should last 30 minutes. We strongly encourage candidates to never “no-show” for an interview.
Each school district will display a list of positions for which they are interviewing. If you do not see your preferred position displayed, we recommend you move on to your next choice of school district. Once you have scheduled your interviews, you may go back and follow up with the districts you are interested in which may not have listed your preferred position. If the school district is not doing interviews, do not be discouraged: Most districts are willing to talk to all candidates.
Tips for Impressing School District Representatives:
- Research the school district ahead of time—including its location and populations served—and be able to articulate why you are interested in that school district.
- List of School Districts Attending Fall TED 2015 (this list is updated frequestly, make sure to check back often for new districts)
- Map of School Districts at Fall TED (will be available approximately one week prior to TED)
- Prior to meeting with school district representatives at Teacher Employment Days, submit your online application for the jobs and school districts of your choice; some districts will be unable to interview you at Teacher Employment Days unless you have already applied for their positions online prior to the event.
- Show up for your interview. It is considered unprofessional to not show up for a scheduled interview, which may make it challenging for you to gain employment.
- Follow through on all instructions from the school district following your interview.
- Follow-up with a Thank You note
How should I dress? What should I bring?
We highly recommend candidates dress professionally. You can use our Pinterest page to see our recommendations for dress.
Bring numerous copies of your resume (a copy machine will not be available), a copy of your transcripts and copies of 3 letters of recommendation.
Secondary teacher candidates should bring a copy of their unofficial transcripts to show districts any additional areas of education you may be eligible to teach if needed. UNC students can find unofficial transcripts on Ursa under the "Student" tab.
Inclement Weather Policy:
Should inclement weather occur, please call (970) 351-4100. If the University is operating on a regular academic/work schedule, or if employees are granted a grace period to arrive, the event will be held as scheduled. Therefore, NO request for the release of obligation or refund will be granted.
In the rare circumstance that the University is closed (i.e. classes are cancelled), the event will be cancelled and every attempt will be made to reschedule.
