Thursday, April 11, 2019 from 8AM - 5PM at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds and Conference Center (Levett Career Center Prep Session will be Monday, March 25, 2019)

One of the most important events for job-seeking seniors is the annual Teacher Candidate Interview Day (TCID) through the College Career Center Consortium which includes our Levett Career Center! Margaret Krantz does as excellent job of making certain our seniors are ready for this big opportunity of interviewing with multiple school corporations in one afternoon. This event is usually held the second week of April. 

More information can be found at the TCID website at http://cccc-in.org/event-2719446

Here are comments from the 2018 teacher candidates who attended TCID:

TCID was a GREAT networking event that I would encourage all education majors to attend. Although it was a little overwhelming at first, having 100 school districts in the same room is invaluable. I would have never been able to travel to all of those districts for interviews without TCID. I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in 10 interviews during TCID, some with school districts I was interested in, and some I was still getting to know. By the end of the day I already had 3 interviews lined up at schools and had over 5 school districts call me within 24 hours. I am thankful to Hanover College for participating in TCID and giving education students the best opportunity to find careers.

Editor's Note: Hannah accepted a job offer two days after TCID with a school she interviewed with at the Job Fair.

For people going to the event next year, make sure to reach out to schools that you're interested in that may not even have an opening in your area. By doing this, I managed to get an interview with one of my dream schools in Indy and am on their radar should anything come up. We all know that the situations for the fall can change in a day so it's great to put yourself out there.  It would also be good to bring a well-polished lesson plan because a lot of employers asked for specific details of lessons and it would be impressive to have that ready to show off. It was really just a great day overall and helped me realize all the opportunities I have out there!
