This fall, representatives from Georgia State University’s College of Education and several metro-Atlanta school districts will come together to offer education students vital information for transitioning from collegiate life to a career as an educator.
The college’s annual Professional Educators Induction Seminar will take place on Oct. 26, 2012, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Senate Salon, located in Georgia State University’s Student Center (44 Courtland St., Atlanta). This event will feature a number of presentations geared toward working in education, including professional ethics for educators, recommendations for making the most out of career fairs and tips on how teacher candidates can best convey their qualifications to potential employers.
“This is a great opportunity for student teachers to ask questions before they’re sitting in a job interview,” said Laurie Forstner, project coordinator for this event. “We want our teachers to feel prepared when they look for jobs in the field.”
Representatives from the following school districts are expected to attend: Atlanta Public Schools, Clayton County Schools, Cobb County School District, City Schools of Decatur, DeKalb County School System, Fulton County Schools, Gwinnett County Public Schools and Henry County Schools.
Additionally, human resources representatives from some systems may remain about 30 minutes following the seminar to answer questions. Professional dress is recommended. No registration is required to attend.
