Faculty of Education to host first job fair

OSHAWA, Ont. - The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) is preparing to host its first annual Faculty of Education Job Fair, which will include 12 employers from local public and separate school boards, as well as international institutions. Over 90 Education students will be on hand to meet with these recruiters.

"Since the Faculty of Education is a professional program, the approach to recruiting is different because it is very specific and detailed," said Anna DeGrauwe of Career + Employment Services. "Last year, individual information sessions were held for school boards. This year, we're hoping that the one-on-one experience of a fair is the best way for students to gather the information they need."

The Job Fair will be held on Wednesday, January 19 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Room G213 of the Gordon Willey building.

The Faculty of Education at UOIT prepares students to teach sciences, mathematics or computer science in Grades 7 to 12. Professors use their passion for teaching to ensure that teacher candidates develop the specific skills they need as future educators.
