The Teacher Recruitment Day is a collaboration between the University Career Center and the J. Lounsbury College of Education. All graduating teacher candidates in the B.S. and M.A.T. programs as well as students from any major interested in pursuing teaching careers are invited to meet and network with participating school systems, teacher organizations and accredited graduate schools. GC alumni may attend as well.
The Teacher Recruitment Day will be held at Georgia College Wellness & Recreation Center on February 1. From 10 a.m. until 12 p.m., students will have time to network with all participating employers. Then from 1 - 3 p.m., students who have pre-registered for mock interviews will meet with one of the volunteering recruiters or school administrators to practice their interviewing skills.
You never have a second chance to make a first impression, so business attire is required for this event. Resumes are also highly encouraged so that you can leave information about yourself with the recruiters. Even if you have applied online it helps the recruiter know who you are when you follow up with them at a later date. We recommend that you bring at least 20 copies of your resume but keep in mind up to 50 school systems will be here ready to talk with you.
The University Career Center will also hold several resume review sessions to help education majors prepare for this event. Dates will be announced in late fall and early spring. Non-education majors should make a Career Center appointment through Unify/PAWS for help with resumes and preparation for this event.
