New Grads and FORUM/Boston
Attending your first FORUM/Boston conference can be intimidating. Hundreds of schools. Even more candidates, many of whom are veteran educators. Back-to-back interviews. Did we mention the interviews?
You can relax, though, because we’ve got you covered! From informational panels that will increase your job-seeker IQ to a dedicated CS&A staff member you can go to for anything related to being an upcoming or recent graduate on the hunt for your first teaching position, you can make the most of your time here at the event.
As you prepare yourself for Friday and Saturday and check out the opportunities below just for job seekers like you, feel free to reach out to your Placement Team or our Director for New Graduate Programs, Sloane Meyer, with any questions. You can also contact us on social media. We’re looking forward to seeing you this week!
