Who May Attend
The job fair is open to all teacher candidates from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (plan on arriving no later than 1:30 p.m.)

Pre-registration is required.

Sponsoring Institutions:
Bloomsburg, Bucknell, East Stroudsburg,
Lock Haven, Lycoming, Mansfield and Susquehanna


Things to Know
Links to the participating school districts are available below. Review this information and know which district representatives you would like to meet. The consortium will be held in the Kehr Union Building (KUB). No one will be permitted into the employer areas (Ballroom & Multi-A & B) until 9:00 a.m. when the program begins. We'll provide an updated list of participants at registration.

While the Consortium brings many hiring officials to campus, it also attracts HUNDREDS of teacher candidates seeking a limited number of positions. Do NOT use this event as your sole source for securing a job. During previous events, inexperienced job seekers have expressed frustration about the number of candidates competing with them for interviews. Unprepared candidates will feel overwhelmed. Review this very helpful Information Sheet to assist you in preparing for the consortium, what to expect the day of the job fair, information on following up, etc.


Interview Format
School districts will hold walk-in interviews beginning at 9:00 a.m. and will be available throughout the day to speak with candidates on a first-come, first-served basis. However, some recruiters may choose to schedule interviews with candidates. Because of the large number of participants, you may have to wait to speak with a recruiter. Review the floor plans prior to the job fair so you are familiar with the layout and can plan your day. Please be patient and courteous.

Helpful Hints
  • Many PA schools do not attend the event because they have no need to seek candidates. Their files are full of completed applications.
  • Take advantage of the opportunity to speak with as many school officials as possible. Don't limit yourself geographically (you may be surprised!)
  • Bring plenty of quality resumes, pens and pencils to the event.
  • Be prepared to talk about your education, skills and experiences and how they can benefit the school district or organization. Ask questions to help determine if you would enjoy working there.
  • Don't expect a job offer during the consortium. Your interview is an initial screening. This is your opportunity to make a good first impression.
  • Appropriate interview attire is required, i.e., suits, business dress. You will be standing in line, so wear comfortable shoes and don't carry a lot of excess baggage. Dress to impress.
  • Ask for a business card so you can follow up properly. Send a thank you correspondence to the districts you are interested in as soon as possible following this event.
