Message to Recruiters
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the annual Canadian Teacher Career Fair sponsored by five Western New York colleges and universities. Sponsoring institutions include Niagara University as well as Medaille, Canisius, D’Youville and Daemen colleges.
This event will provide you with an excellent opportunity to meet a large number of highly-qualified teacher candidates. Given our proximity to the Canadian border in Lewiston, our schools provide teacher certification programs for more than 1,500 registered Canadian students each year. Our teacher candidates have been trained in a wide variety of certification areas, and they are looking for an opportunity to connect with recruiters from Ontario school boards. The Canadian Teacher Career Fair is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011, in the Castellani Art Museum at Niagara University. The agenda will be as follows:
|8:30 – 10 a.m.
||Setup and continental breakfast|
|10 a.m. – Noon||Career Fair. Recruiters will be provided with an assigned table to display materials and/or set up audiovisual equipment describing employment opportunities, benefits, and application requirements specific to their school boards.|
|12:15 – 1:30 p.m.||Lunch - Bisgrove 350 / 351|
We are advising students to prepare for the Canadian Teacher Career Fair by visiting the website for the list of participating school boards and to carefully follow any specific instructions for submitting online applications prior to the fair. It is very important, therefore, that you provide those instructions on the registration form you submit to us. Please note that many candidates attending the fair will have made special arrangements to leave student teaching and other responsibilities expressly to present their resumes in person and begin the hiring conversation. We would thus appreciate your willingness to accept their resumes as you explain professional opportunities within your boards.
Please register for the fair by Dec. 2, 2011, by submitting the online form. There is a non-refundable registration fee of $125 (U.S.), which includes an 8-foot table, continental breakfast and lunch. Payment may be made by credit card or check payable to Niagara University and mailed to the Office of Career Services, PO Box 2041, Niagara University, N.Y. 14109-2041. If you have any further questions about the Canadian Teacher Career Fair, please contact Bob Swanson at Niagara University at 716.286.8500.
