A Christian School Recruitment Conference is sponsored by the Career Services office each February. Over 100 administrators and principals from many states and some foreign countries gather to interview and hire new teachers for their schools. This conference will give you many opportunities to find a place of service after you graduate. In addition, students can network with schools through our online placement service, CareerCentral. Hundreds of employment opportunities are posted annually. The Career Services office also helps students by holding seminars on resume preparation and interview techniques.
