The 32nd annual Minnesota Education Job Fair sponsored by the Minnesota Education Job Fair Association will be held at the MINNEAPOLIS CONVENTION CENTER on Monday, April 23, 2018. Representatives from Minnesota, national and international organizations will attend. The representatives at the Fair will provide candidates with information about job opportunities within their districts/organization. Many of the representatives will establish interview schedules and conduct actual employment interviews on the day of the Job Fair. Representatives will seek to hire in areas of elementary, secondary, special education, school counseling, administration, as well as school social workers.
Colleges/Universities from thirty teacher producing institutions in Minnesota will have candidates participating in this event. Transportation and accommodations to attend the fair are on your own. To be eligible for the Education Job Fair, you must be a student or graduate from a Minnesota college or university and register through your college career (XPD) office. You must also must be certified by December 2018.
CSB/SJU candidates should complete the on-line registration form including credit/debit card payment of $20 and submit a resume with the registration form in a PDF format.
- Current up-to-date resume for office use (will not be submitted to employers), however, RESUME SHOULD BE IN FINAL FORM (NOT A DRAFT) . It is recommended that you have your resume critiqued by a career counselor prior to the registration deadline and before reaching out to participating employers.
Submitting the registratoin form, payment, and resumes by March 26, 2018, will reserve your spot at the Fair. If you are registered and decide not to attend the Education Job Fair, reimbursement of the fee will be available up to one week prior to the fair (April 16th). After the March 26 registration deadline, XPD will send updates and details regarding the fair to the email address provided on your registration form.
All employer participation updates will be available through the http://www.mnedfair.org website. Upon deciding to attend the Fair, you are encouraged to use this website to gain contact/address information to send cover letters/resumes and/or complete on-line applications for the districts of interest. You will be indicating in your correspondence that you will be attending the Fair on Monday, April 23 and wold like to obtain application materials and request an interview for the day of the Fair.
Candidates looking out of state have the most to gain: although you will see Minnesota school districts represented, some of them will participate only to provide information and not to interview. The out-of-state schools will be much more likely to both inform and interview the day of the Fair. Many of the school districts may not know their needs for the coming year by April 23, but will be available at the Fair to provide information and collect resumes for their district. This is a valuable networking and interviewing opportunity!
