The 2019 spring job fairs have concluded. If you missed the job fairs, check here for job listings.
What to Expect
When you visit our job fair, come prepared with your resume and a smile. This will be an opportunity to tell administrators about your credentials and let them know why you want to teach in our schools. Flyers and other publications that contain detailed information about the district will also be available for pickup.
What Happens After the Job Fair
After the job fair, principals will review the resumes of prospective new teachers. They will check their notes from the job fair and discuss each prospective teacher’s strengths.
Check for Openings
Check the EPS website each day for new job openings. As soon as you see a position for which you qualify, submit your application. It will then become available not only to the principal at that school but to principals at other schools.
