Schools across British Columbia are hiring! With more than 40 employers hiring and over 400 teacher job postings to consider, where do you start? If you're an out-of-province teacher from Alberta teacher for example, which employer, location and opportunity are right for you?
To help you answer those questions, join five public school districts and Western Canada's largest Catholic school employer at the EdTalent Hire Now Virtual Career Fair. On November 6th, you'll have the opportunity to text or video chat with Principals and hiring managers from BC's public and independent schools. You will get 5-10 minutes to chat with employers to learn more about opportunities with these employers.
