Representatives from school districts come to this central location for a day of focused interaction with candidates.
We are sorry you have missed the pre-registration deadline for this Saturday's (March 19th) Santa Clara County Teacher Recruitment Fair, however, you still may have an opportunity to attend.
Since all pre-registration steps were not completed by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 15th, you will
NOT be admitted into the fair at 9:00 a.m., however, you will be able to attend the fair after 11:00 a.m. provided you qualify and verify you are appropriately credentialed. You will also be asked to provide a copy of your resume to our registration staff.
This registration process tends to take some time because of paperwork and the large crowd, therefore, it is recommended that you come early (around 9:00 a.m.) to register.
This recruitment fair is designated for credentialed candidates, including those with a California preliminary, clear, or professional clear teaching credential; candidates with at least one year experience in a teaching intern program; those who will have a credential by fall 2016; and candidates who have a credential from outside of California.

Multiple application packets: including your EDJOIN application, letter of introduction, resume, letters of recommendation and copies of credentials. Do some research beforehand so you have an idea of how many packets to bring and what districts you will want to meet.
This fair is designed for fully credentialed candidates. School districts first consider fully credentialed candidates for their anticipated staffing needs for the next school year. Please visit the following
