Those interested in learning more about the many teaching opportunities and benefits offered by Rutherford County Schools will not want to miss the district’s Virtual Teacher Recruitment Fair on Feb. 26, said Dr. Andrea Anthony, assistant superintendent for Human Resources.

“It gives (candidates) a chance to connect directly with the administrators and leaders,” Anthony explained. “You get to be a little bit more competitive because you’re getting to meet the actual administrators.”

Mentioning that you have applied online is a good idea, Anthony says. Being able to attend the Virtual Teacher Recruitment Fair can help you stand out — but it can also be a wonderful opportunity for applicants who are passionate about Title I schools, or who have a strong connection to their local schools.

“It’s an opportunity to interact and gain insight into the culture of the school,” said Anthony. “You get to establish a relationship with that administrative team so they can put a name with an application — or a face if they can see (you) virtually.”

As with in-person interviews, applicants may feel nervous about jumping on Zoom for a face-to-face meeting. Preparing for the recruitment fair comes with advice similar to any professional interview:

“Be prompt. Dress professionally,” Anthony advises. “Have any materials ready to share and be willing to follow up and send the administrator a copy of your resume. Do your research – make sure you know something about the school before you go to the interview.”
