Job opportunities for teachers showcased Wednesday, April 18.

KALAMAZOO--Job opportunities for teachers will be showcased during Western Michigan University's 24th annual Teacher Education Career Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, in the East Ballroom of the Bernhard Center.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is designed to recruit teachers for K-12 educational systems for the 2012-13 academic year and to provide information about WMU's graduate-school opportunities.

This year's event will feature recruiters representing more than 50 school districts in Michigan, 15 other states and Korea. Candidates for teaching positions do not need to preregister for the fair, but should dress in interview attire and bring a sufficient supply of resumes to distribute to prospective employers.

Printed versions of helpful hints to prepare for the fair may be picked up in WMU's Career and Student Employment Services office on the first floor of Ellsworth Hall, which is located next to the Bernhard Center.
