Read what employers and candidates are saying about MERC...
Candidates were very professional in their demeanor and highly qualified. I wish I had positions for all of them. Almost all of them were certified and/or pending certification at the completion of the semester.
This was a pleasure! Very good turnout. Great, convenient facilities. Great refreshments. Candidates well-prepared and presented well!
Very helpful staff! I really appreciated that there were employers from both inside and outside the New England area. I am interested in mobility outside of New England, so states such as Colorado, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, and others were very appealing to me.
Great opportunity to distribute resumes to several potential employers in one place... experience talking with representatives from hiring districts.
As a school counselor, usually job fairs have very limited use for me since everyone is usually looking for teachers. This was the first fair that had multiple schools looking for counselors or willing to look into the licensure to hire a counselor at their school. It was very helpful and I made some great connections.
MERC allows for applicants to be more than a resume to potential employers and receive suggestions.
It was a really great experience for someone who had never been to a job fair as well as a great place to get my resume out there!
A good environment for meeting a lot of potential employers quickly and simply. The event was well-managed and well-attended, but not so crowded that it was uncomfortable. I have been to career fairs where the venue is so packed that it was impossible to meet with employers and this is not the case here.
Great opportunity to meet a lot of different school districts from across the United States.
Great chance to see what is out there in the field of education.
A pleasant workable site! Good refreshments, very professionally organized and managed. Overall, a very rewarding/helpful opportunity. Thank you!
The best job fair of its type: the most employers, the most organized.
An all around good day and great pool of applicants!
It was a wonderful experience meeting the employers face-to-face and talking to them personally.
I enjoyed the fair - it was well-organized. I'll return next year!
MERC - always the best! Best students, hospitality, food, and volunteers.
It was great having such a large number of organizations in the same place!
MERC heightens your chance of getting an interview because you are meeting and talking with employers firsthand. It also gives you a chance to learn more about schools that you may not already know much about and gives you practice interviewing.
I recommend MERC; it allows for good practice and makes an applicant feel proactive in their process.
It was helpful to learn about organizations that have a mission statement that you believe in. It was also nice to see how an education fair is different from a business career fair - I like the education fair better.
Great practice meeting and connecting to employers, answering questions, seeing what employers want to know.
I found it helpful to be able to practice talking to employers, and also helpful to make connections so that when I apply online I can reference that it was great to meet them at MERC.
By the end of the job fair, I felt very comfortable with and eager to talk with potential employers. This comfort and ease helped me during job interviews after MERC. Great staff, fine accommodations. Many good candidates.
Awesome! The best experience yet for me!
