EDUCATION CAREER FAIR PROVIDES OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS AND REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS TO CONNECT
MANHATTAN -- Representatives from school districts in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Arizona will be attending Kansas State University's Education Career Fair from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Nov. 2, at the K-State Alumni Center.
Although the fair is designed for soon-to-graduate K-State students, alumni and community members are welcome to attend. Underclassmen studying education also can benefit from attending the fair, as some schools may be looking to fill positions such as bus drivers and lunchroom attendants.
To prepare for the fair, K-State's Career and Employment Services is offering "How to Succeed at the Education Career Fair" at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 29, in 21 Bluemont Hall.
Students can access an up-to-date list of participating employers by logging on to http://www.k-state.edu/ces and then selecting My CES account. After logging in, select the Career Fairs and Events tab, followed by Career Fair. Individuals who do not have a student account can access a list of participating employers by going to http://www.k-state.edu/ces and clicking the Education Career Fair icon at the top of the screen.
"Volunteering for the career fair is a great way for students to network with different districts and get insider advice from professionals," said LaToya Farris, assistant director of K-State Career and Employment Services.
Students interested in volunteering can contact Alison Sotkovski at 785-532-6508 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Farris also encourages students seeking jobs to set up an advising appointment with her prior to the fair by calling 785-532-6506 or to visit on Walk-in Wednesdays from noon to 4 p.m. in Holtz Hall.
