Research which school districts and educational organizations are attending MERC.
Develop a prioritized “target list” of schools and conduct research on anticipated job openings.
Be aware that districts’ needs may change at any time prior to or after MERC.
At the Fair
Check in at the Candidate Registration tables. You will receive a list of participating employers and their locations at the venue.
Employers will utilize different formats, so follow the lead of each individual employer. Most employers have short conversations, collect resumes, and contact selected candidates at a later date. Some employers will interview candidates at their booth during MERC; districts from outside New England are more likely to conduct on-site interviews.
Some employers are not able to take resumes and will direct candidates to their online application system. Connecting with the recruiter at MERC will allow you to ask questions, promote yourself, and use their name in a cover letter.
Please be aware that some employers choose to leave after lunch or early afternoon. Therefore, if at all possible, arrive at the fair sometime before lunch so that you have a chance to meet with as many hiring personnel as possible.
Special Needs Requests
If you are a candidate with special needs, please contact your college/university career center. Requests for accommodations must be received no later than April 1st.
There are numerous restaurants and cafés in the George Sherman Union at Boston University, as well as those located in the immediate surrounding area.
