Preparing for the Education Career Fair

January 19, 2023
 

On Friday, January 20, 2023 the Teacher Education Office hosts the annual Education Career Fair for UBC Vancouver teacher candidates. This year, we welcome over 90 registered exhibitors from BC and beyond. Exhibitors include BC school districts, independent schools, international schools, community organizations, as well as those from out of province. BEd classes have been cancelled to give teacher candidates time to attend and meet recruiters.

 

3 Tips for Teacher Candidates to Prepare for the Career Fair:

    1. Review the list of exhibitors:
    2. Get your 1-page resume ready:
    • While some recruiters may interview teacher candidates on the spot or one-on-one in private on the day, many will have limited time to get to know you, so have your paper and digital copies ready to share!
    3. Read the TC Q&As:
    • Visit TEO Program Manager Keith McPherson’s Career Fair blog and read the helpful tips from dress code, resume and cover letting writing, questions to ask recruiters, and so – much – more!
