On March 7, UNCW’s Career Center hosted a job fair for Watson College students. The event provided an opportunity for pre-service teachers to meet with representatives from school districts throughout the region and state to discuss teaching opportunities in grades pre-K through 12.

Representatives from 62 school districts participated in the job fair, held in the Burney Center. Nearly 200 Watson College students attended the event.

Prior to the fair, human resources recruiters and principals participated in a panel discussion in Lumina Theater. During the forum, panelists answered questions from student teachers and provided advice for the job search and teaching in the classroom.

Diane Reed, assistant director of UNCW’s Career Center coordinated the job fair and panel discussion.
