Career Placement Firms

NAIS dedicates space at each Annual Conference for teacher and administrative placement firms to host interviews and meetings with attendees. 

New for 2017
NAIS Career Center Lounge – This new feature, located in the lobby, will provide opportunities for visitors to the space to network with other job seekers, pick-up resources about participating placement firms, and learn more about the NAIS Career Center.  This informal lounge space will offer valuable resources to assist hiring managers and interviewees with things like creating powerful resumes, using behavioral interviewing tips, understanding how to network for job searching and career success, and so much more. The NAIS Career Center Lounge will also be the site of a reception for Placement Firm representatives and NAIS staff and leadership on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at approximately 4:00 PM.
