Education students looking to get a jump start on their post-graduation job searches will be able to meet with potential employers at an Education Career Fair on April 24, 2013, from 4-7 p.m. in University Center rooms 480 and 485.
The career fair, hosted by the College of Education and Georgia State University Career Services, invites current GSU students to meet with representatives from various school systems in Georgia and other states. County school systems currently registered to attend include Butts, Cherokee, Cobb, DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Liberty counties in Georgia; Caroline County Public Schools in Denton, Md.; Federal Way Public Schools in Federal Way, Wash.; Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools in Nashville, Tenn.; Orange County Public Schools in Orlando, Fla.; and School District of Clay County in Green Cove Springs, Fla.
Representatives from specific schools and businesses will also be in attendance, including the Atlanta Speech School; Liberty County Board of Education in Hinesville, Ga.; Life Time Fitness in Chanhassen, Minnesota; and New Life Academy of Excellence, Inc. in Norcross, Ga.
Laurie Forstner, College of Education project coordinator, said the event is designed to help students from various educational disciplines make connections and ask questions of those working in the field.
“This event is a rich opportunity for Georgia State students and recent graduates to bring their resumes and take advantage of the opportunity to meet face-to-face with HR representatives from many schools and systems,” she said. “While it’s not a time to expect a full, personal interview, students shouldn’t miss the chance to learn of anticipated openings or hiring trends, to ask procedural questions and get tips on framing themselves as ideal candidates.”
