The Wayne State University College of Education will host a virtual job fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5. The event is free and open to anyone interested in pursuing jobs in education as well as current education professionals seeking new opportunities. “We are committed not only to supporting our students and alumni and members of the community in their job search but also to serving as partners to school districts and other educational organizations that are seeking qualified candidates for open positions,” says Paul Johnson, assistant dean of the WSU Division of Academic Services. “We are grateful for the support of the participating employers.” Recruiters from throughout the Midwest, including out-of-state school districts, will interview candidates for a variety of positions in teaching, administration, counseling, librarianship, psychology, social work, special education and more. More than 30 employers are expected to attend. “Because the job fair is virtual, it is open to anyone who wants to pursue a career in education,” says Mary Waker, academic services advisor and coordinator of the event. “We hope job seekers throughout the U.S. will explore available opportunities with recruiting organizations and join us for this event.”
