The California Center on Teaching Careers (The Center) invites you to explore a career in teaching in California through a VIRTUAL career fair. Teacher candidates can join the event from a laptop, tablet, or mobile device and connect with teacher preparation representatives and/or school district administrators to chat or simply browse. No traveling required!
The Virtual Fair will take place on November 27-30, 2018, and will run all 4 days from 3:00pm – 7:00pm, PST.
To attend this event, you must register online. Registration instructions and information is attached or simply click here. The Center recommends that all candidates upload a current resume. Registration information should reflect your teaching interest, the California regions you are interested in teaching, or region interest for participation in a teacher preparation program.

A question I’ve been getting a lot lately is when do I know when to share my professional documents (i.e., resume, cover letter, references, portfolio) with potential employers? Frustratingly, the best answer is…it depends! Here are some highlights to help you navigate.
More virtual fairs to think about – especially for those thinking about teaching out-of-state. Check the CareerEco site for even more fair options.
Many school districts offer their own Teacher Fairs throughout the year to recruit future teachers. It’s never a bad idea to get face-to-face with these employers to express your interest (even if it’s a few years from now)! Keep your eyes and ears open for others this winter, spring, and early summer.
Not all school districts attend university-run teacher fairs. Some choose to host their own job fairs to attract teachers to their schools. It is best to consider both networking options as a job seeker so you don’t miss any opportunity to teach at the school of your dreams.
