Approximately 90 positions are listed with the fair, according to MSU Career Services director Carina Beck. Montana school districts are filling positions in agricultural education, elementary education, mathematics, music, science, social studies, special education, English, physical education, family and consumer science as well as other areas, Beck said.
The fair was created four years ago to help MSU teaching graduates find openings within the state, but the free event is open to any educator looking for a job in Montana. Last year, 74 percent of graduates from the MSU College of Education, Health and Human Development stayed in Montana, Beck said.
A current list of attendees includes representatives from schools in Bozeman, Browning, Cottonwood School District No. 57, Fairfield, Gardiner, Grass Range, Great Falls, Hardin, Helena, Hobson, Lame Deer, Libby, Lodge Grass, Moore, Red Lodge, Ronan/Pablo, Roy, Shelby, Shields Valley, Valier and Winnett. More schools are expected to register.
The event is co-hosted by MSU Career Services and the College of Education, Health and Human Development. For more information, contact Career Services at 406-994-4353 or go to www.montana.edu/careers/career_fair_events.html.
