Annual career fair attracts students and recruiters.

A strong national presence of recruiters from across Canada and the UK set up tables and brought lots of handouts to share at this year's Teacher Recruitment Fair.

Held every May in the Faculty of Education, the event usually draws between 15-20 groups that visit to woo new graduates, but numbers are growing steadily. Visiting organizations are recruiting for places like Alberta, North West Territories, Ontario, Northern Quebec, Labrador, China and the UK.

This year brought several new organizations to the annual career fair, with a heavier concentration of recruiters from outside the province.

Last year's Teacher Recruitment Fair saw about 30 of Memorial Education graduates take jobs internationally.
