(WXYZ) — The Michigan Department of Education will be hosting three virtual job fairs for those seeking to work in the education field, as well as employers of educators and educational support staff.

“A top priority at MDE is helping schools meet the diverse needs of Michigan’s students,” said State Superintendent Dr. Michael F. Rice in a press release. “One of the ways we can do that is to connect schools and districts with qualified candidates. Now, more than ever, it is essential that we help ensure that every student is supported in their learning journey.”

The three job fairs will be held on Oct. 7, March 3 and June 16. Register here.

“Last school year, we were pleased to help more than 150 employers meet their staffing needs through our job fairs,” said Leah Breen, director of MDE’s Office of Educator Excellence. “We are dedicated to helping ensure that every school is staffed with qualified educational personnel.”
