12:31 p.m., April 5, 2011--Want help finding a job in the field of education? Teach in Delaware Day and Project Search give University of Delaware seniors and alumni two days to discover the occupational possibilities for next school year. Held on April 12 and 13, the event brings recruiters to campus to meet and interview prospective teachers, counselors, administrators, and specialists for fall 2011 vacancies.
"This event is great because you have the opportunity to meet with school districts from all over the region and make a strong first impression," said Maria Paredes, a graduate student who plans to teach English as a Second Language. "You walk away understanding what positions they're hoping to fill and it's also a great chance for networking."
