320 recruiters expected at Teacher Job Fair

BOWLING GREEN, O.--A record number of recruiters (320) and school districts (170) will be attending the annual Bowling Green State University Teacher Job Fair on Thursday (April 19).

Begun in 1986, this year's fair has attracted recruiters from 14 states, stretching from California to Maryland. Recruiters are also coming from Nevada and many of the country's southern-border states, including Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Illinois, Kentucky and West Virginia will be represented as well, along with Ohio.

BGSU candidates can schedule up to 12 interviews between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the University's Perry Field House.

The interviewers will be particularly looking for special education, mathematics and science teachers, according to the BGSU Career Center, which sponsors the fair. School psychologists are also in demand, as are speech, language and middle childhood education specialists.

BGSU students—and alumni—seeking teaching positions may sign up for interviews and learn more about the districts recruiting from 8-9:30 a.m. Thursday at the fair.
