Anchorage Job Fair: District Attendees

This is the new version of the Alaska Teacher Placement (ATP) forum for teachers, education majors, and school administrators to discuss working and living in the state of Alaska. Those considering an Alaskan job, or considering a new Alaskan education job ask questions, and those with information and/or opinions provide answers. Although many users are teacher or principal candidates from the Lower 48, a large number of current and former school district HR and school administrators subscribe.

Thank you Toni! See you all in 3 weeks! I just realized that I packed my winter coat in storage when I went home for Christmas, not wanting to bring it back to Bermuda since I was moving back in 6 months. I may be a bit chilly! Ha!

When signing up for a room at the host hotel, is there a code I can put in to book with the ATP price so I can book it online? Or is the only way to get the discount prices by calling?

The hotel told us that you will need to call to get the rate. They were super helpful and able to book the room quickly with just our Names and the dates we needed rooms.

Greetings, do you recommend the job fair for administrators? Can you provide the percentage of successful job fair participants?

Hi,

Yes, the Anchorage ATP Job Fair has the highest number of both teaching and school administrator jobs of any event each recruiting cycle. School districts who are hiring are there to fill their positions.

There is no way to tell the percentage of successful applicants, as districts do not report that information to ATP. Many hires take place at the ATP Anchorage Job Fair, but many also take place as a result of contacts made at the event, but are not offered until later in the season. But, rest assured that good candidates have a very good chance of landing a position at any ATP-sponsored event.

Good luck in your search.

Thank you. I appreciate your response. My husband has lived in AK since 1996. We have a daughter, son, spouses, and 5 grandchildren also in AK. I am excited to join my family and the educational team in AK. Hope to meet you at the job fair.
Sincerely, Isabel Noble
