New York, NY-- CharterSchoolJobs.com, a leading human capital recruitment provider to the public charter school industry, held the 10th Annual Metro NY Charter School Career Fair in partnership with the Office of Career Services, Teachers College, Columbia University on Saturday, February 18, 2012. Over 350 highly qualified, certified K-12 teachers and instructional leaders attended the event in search of career opportunities at 47 charter school organizations from the metro New York City area and beyond. The top performing charter schools in the New York area were well represented at the event.
We are especially grateful to our Platinum Sponsor Success Academy Charter Schools and Gold Sponsors Coney Island Prep and KIPP NYC. All 3 organizations are delivering high-quality instruction that produces significantly better ELA and Math scores than traditional public schools located nearby. We are proud they trust CharterSchoolJobs.com to deliver the very best candidates year after year.
"This year, schools at the fair were of course looking for math, science, special education and reading teachers. But I was a bit surprised by the number of schools looking for fine arts and music teachers", said Kent Strong, CEO & founder of K12connect, Inc, the parent company of CharterSchoolJobs.com. "We picked up on this trend early enough to go out and find more art and music teachers by analyzing the job opportunity data that registered schools entered into our career fair management system."
For the second year in a row, seasoned CharterSchoolJobs.com recruitment professionals screened candidates for experience, certification, and academic achievement before granting admission to the career fair. "It makes for a much more productive event when nearly every candidate you meet is academically accomplished and qualified for an opportunity at your school", said Mr. Strong. The event targeted certified teachers and instructional leaders.
The 47 schools that participated in the 10th Annual Metro NY Charter School Career Fair are:
