CASPA has hosted successful job fairs for teachers in the spring of each year. In response to recent changes in the hiring process of school districts, CASPA has adapted new practices to ensure a similar experience for candidates. 
 

The traditional style of job fairs typically starts with a two-hour, line-intensive session where candidates attempt to schedule as many face-to-face interviews with individual school districts as possible, for later in the day. This design works well for many school districts, and candidates should keep this process in mind as they search. Because of these uncertainties, many districts have moved from interviewing to more of a “meet and greet.” These “meet and greets” will be conducted throughout the day by some school districts. Each district will individually determine their format. 

What is a “meet and greet”? The “meet and greet” format is a brief conversation between candidates and districts. It allows recruiters to talk to as many candidates as possible throughout the day.  Don’t underestimate the power of a “meet and greet”!  Some of these first impression conversations may lead to interviews later in the year. 

Not all districts will be seeking candidates across all endorsement areas. Limited information about the district needs will be available prior to the event. Candidates are encouraged to make contacts with as many districts as possible, should openings in their endorsement area become available.

What Applicants Should Expect

The CASPA job fairs have a design that is very similar to many of the university job fairs. To maximize the experience for participants, we offer the following information:

Due to the nature of this job fair, Denver Metro districts will not be interviewing individuals seeking employment under Alternative Licensure or Teacher-In-Residence.
