Future teachers: Education Career Fair set for March 8

Mark your calendars for the Education Career Fair on Friday, March 8, from 11:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. in the Viking Union Multi-Purpose Room (MPR). This in-person event welcomes attendees from across the entire WWU community, including students, alumni, and campus visitors. It's a fantastic opportunity to meet employers actively recruiting for opportunities in education sectors that include school districts, college/university/state agencies and private/charter schools. 

Plan ahead by viewing the list of participating employers on the Student Preview Page in Handshake. While advanced registration through Handshake is encouraged, it's not mandatory. Register to stay updated on newly registered employers and gain valuable career fair preparation tips.

  2. Register and review the list of employers visiting campus on the Student Preview Page.
