There is a career opportunity for SNHU education students that is happening on March 29 on the second floor of the Dining Center, Teacher Career Day. The Job fair portion of the event will run from 10 – 11:30 a.m. If the student is selected and qualifies for interviewing, the interview portion of the event will take place between 12:45–3 p.m.

This event is open to all students who are in the School of Education. Schools as well as other employers will be participating in this event by having the students talk to certain schools and other employees in need of those with a degree in education. The students will be able to talk to the employers and explore more of their specific areas of interest they want to pursue after they graduate.

There will be a workshop after the job fair portion that is dedicated to helping students through the interview process, so that they know what to expect from the employers.

The interview process will be for those who are selected by the participating schools at the event. They will be able to sit down one on one with employers who are looking to hire, and even if students are not looking for work at the time, they can still participate in a mock interview with an employer so they will know what to expect in the future.

This event will hopefully be able to open students’ eyes about the many opportunities in the education field. Being a teacher in a school isn’t the only path that education students can take as there are many opportunities to explore, from administration to counseling and other roles.

This event is being run by career counselor Tracy Micali. If any student has questions about the event or wants to prepare they can either call The Career & Professional Development Center at 603-645-9793, stop by the office in Gustafson or stop by Tracy’s walk-in hours at Belknap Hall on Mondays and Thursdays from 1:30–3:30 p.m.
