Focused on Solving Critical Teacher Shortages
Texas Teachers Teacher Certification announced their first Virtual Job Fair, hosted through Brazen.com, to match qualified teaching candidates with open school district positions. Texas Teachers has held highly successful in-person job fairs each summer, but this first virtual job fair will allow hundreds of school district recruiters and teacher candidates to network much earlier in the hiring season than ever before. Last year alone, Texas Teachers helped over 7,000 new teachers begin rewarding careers with school districts across the state. The use of technology and innovation to help ensure every classroom has a well-prepared educator is a direct part of the Texas Teachers mission.
The Virtual Job Fair has an online, cloud-based platform that makes it convenient for teacher candidates and recruiters to participate from anywhere. Texas Teachers’ candidates will participate in 1-on-1 text-based chats with district HR representatives from around the state using their desktop, phone, or tablet.Advantages of the virtual job fair include:
