The University of Nebraska at Kearney Office of Academic and Career Services will host this year’s Educators Employment Fair on Tuesday, March 26, in the Ponderosa Room of the Nebraskan Student Union.

The fair is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and will follow an “open” format, which means that students and educational institutions are free to mingle and exchange information without having a detailed schedule for presentations, Q-and-A or interviews. The fair, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled to conclude at 12:30 p.m.

Education students who are not yet seeking a position are welcome to volunteer to help with the career fair, said Traci Gunderson, UNK Academic and Career Services adviser. Students may stop by the Academic and Career Services offices in the Memorial Student Affairs Building, Room 140, to sign up for a time slot.

Schools from several states,  including Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Texas, will participate in the fair. Some institutions only have a few positions available, but others, such as  Lincoln Public Schools, have more than 100 different positions available for education students.
