The Regional Teacher Recruitment fair held every spring at USI is one of the largest in the area. School districts both locally and from all over the country attend the fair to recruit upperclassmen and recent graduates.
Your $30.00 registration fee includes one 6-foot table, 2 chairs, for up to 2 registered recruiters. Additional recruiters can attend for $5 per person and should be noted during the registration process. Because the fair ends at 12 p.m., lunch will only be provided for you by request on the registration form. *Event maps are printed approximately two weeks prior to the fair. While tables may be available after that time, you are not guaranteed to be included on the event map, so plan to register early.
SCHEDULE for the day of Teacher Recruitment Fair
The fair is held in Carter Hall at the University of Southern Indiana. (Map of Campus)
8:00 - 9:30 a.m. - Employer check-in / set up
When you arrive on campus, turn right at the circle, follow the road around to parking lot N. You will be able to pull up and unload your vehicle, we try to have student volunteers there to help you unload. There is limited parking in that area, so you may need to move your vehicle to one of the larger parking areas. When you come inside the University Center, come up the stairs or elevator to the second floor. You will pass the dining hall and walk toward CARTER HALL. (Look for signs). Employer check-in will be at the end of the hallway past student check-in.
8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. - Employer refreshments
Join us in the courtesy suite for coffee and donuts prior to the fair.
9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. - Speaker Series
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. - Teacher Recruitment Fair
Students will come to the fair throughout the day between classes. We recommend that upperclassmen be professionally dressed, have resumes and be ready to meet with you. Underclassmen may come to visit the fair in their casual clothes to gather information about districts they may be interested in when they finish their education.
12:00 p.m. - 12:30 p.m. - Teardown
*Employers staying for on-campus interviews can request a box lunch at the time of registration.
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. On-Campus Interviews
Employers may wish to talk more closely or interview specific students at the fair. If you wish to do so, you may request one of the private interview rooms we have available. There is no additional charge for this, however, please let us know in advance to ensure availability.
We have a limited number of tables available with access to electricity. If your booth requires access, please make a note during the registration process.
