On Saturday, June 4, 2016, over 50 public charter schools located in the New York City area will be recruiting certified K-12 classroom teachers in all grade levels and subjects at the Charter School Jobs™ Fair NYC - Spring 2016. The event will be held at Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy at 35 East 125th Street, New York, NY from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. A diverse mix of elementary, middle, and high schools with educational philosophies that run the spectrum from progressive to conservative will be looking for talented education professionals. If you are a certified middle grades or secondary teacher, particularly math, sciences or special needs, we strongly encourage you to join us as there is very strong demand for candidates with these credentials. Some schools will also be looking for instructional coaches, deans, APs, grade-level and subject heads, and other professionals. Very few schools attending are searching for pupil services candidates, so unfortunately we will approve only a small number of school counselor candidates to attend the fair. This event is primarily focused on classroom teachers and instructional management and leadership candidates.
Please note that candidates must pre-register on CharterSchoolJobs.com to to attend. Register now by clicking the button below:
You will need to upload a copy of your resume for screening by Charter School Jobs™ staff in order to ensure that you are qualified for career opportunities at one or more of the attending charter schools.
At the career fair, you will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with recruiters from over 50 public charter schools. Depending upon the size of the charter school organization, you may meet professional recruiters that are specialized in finding teachers and other instructional staff - usually from larger school networks. Individual charter schools (“community schools”) will often send their principal and/or other school leadership team members to the career fair, so you will be speaking directly with the person who will make the final decision on who is hired. It’s a great opportunity to cut through the (sometimes frustrating) application process and speak directly with people who make the hiring decisions at the school organization.

Many candidates ask about teacher salaries at charter schools. The answer like most things in the highly diverse world of charter schools is that it varies from one school to the next. However, in general, NYC area charter schools offer salaries to certified teachers that are slightly above the NYC Dept. of Education salary for similarly experienced educators. However, because most charter schools are not bound to collective bargaining agreements, they are free to be more creative and have more discretion in designing compensation packages. All charter schools attending the career fair offer health insurance and most offer retirement benefits as well for full-time employees. For those not familiar with charter schools, we have a brief overview of charter schools on our website.
Once again, if you are a classroom teacher, instructional manager or SLT professional, please join us on Saturday, June 4, 2016. Click HERE to register for the career fair. Questions and inquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
