If you are a local college student majoring in education — either at MBU or another area university — bring your resume today and find that dream job.


With graduation quickly approaching, the question that often arises is, “What are you going to do after you graduate?”

If you’re an education major, a key part of your plan should be attending the Education Job Fair today on the campus of Missouri Baptist University.

MBU’s Career Services Department is hosting its annual Education Job Fair today (Tuesday, Feb. 11), beginning at 10 a.m. in the Carl and Deloris Petty Sports and Recreation Complex on MBU’s main campus. Admission is free.

“It is important for students to attend the Education Job Fair because it gives them the opportunity to get face-to-face time with a school district,” said Lindsey Werges, Career Services employment services coordinator at MBU.

There will be 23 school districts from Missouri represented at today’s fair, including Wentzville School District, Webster Groves and Sikeston School District.

“Some of these districts will be conducting formal interviews at the fair and some will be screening candidates,” Werges said, “so bring several copies of your professionally written resume, cover letter, and dress appropriately for a possible interview.”

Sign-in for the Education Job Fair is open to seniors and alumni of Missouri Baptist University at 10 a.m. Then it is open at 11 a.m. to other students.

This means you can invite friends from other schools to the event as well.

“With the rise and popularity of online submission of applications and resumes, the Education Job Fair offers a great opportunity for students to meet representatives of districts in person and make an impression,” Werges said.
