If someone is interested in a job in education, the University of Houston-Victoria can help.
About 25 school districts are expected at the Education Career Fair hosted by UHV from 10 to noon on Wednesday in the Multi-Purpose Room of the University Center, 3007 N. Ben Wilson.
“We’ll have representatives from school districts like Katy, Fort Bend, Victoria and the surrounding areas,” UHV Career Services coordinator Eunice Mesa said.
The event is free to the public. Attendees are asked to dress professionally and bring plenty of copies of their resumes, she said.
“If any school districts are looking for new employees, we still have some space available,” she said.
In the past, similar events have drawn more than 60 quality applicants.
The UHV School of Education & Human Development also will have representatives available to answer any questions about becoming a certified teacher or earning an advanced degree in education.
“Education is a very good field to be in during a recession,” said Dennis Riedesel, director of field-based experiences in the UHV School of Education & Human Development. “We will always have to send our children to school.”
