What Our University Partners Are Saying

"Diversity in Ed is the catalyst for bridging the higher education pre-service world to the classroom job opportunities for our future teachers. During this time, when collaboration is critical to the advancement of our education system, Diversity in Ed provides the resources, support and opportunities for educators to maximize their time and effort to focus on building a culturally competent workforce. Diversity in Ed is a go-to for any recruitment effort and diversity enhancement strategy!"

Joshua P. Cole, Ph.D.

"I write to share the news that our program’s proposal for a BA degree program in Japanese Studies at the College of William & Mary has been approved and to thank you for your invaluable support, which helped to make this possible… Diversity in Ed is precisely the sort of authoritative voice we needed to help make our case, and your letter made it so persuasively—we couldn’t have done it without you!"

Michael Cronin
Associate Chair of Faculty Affairs, Associate Professor of Japanese Studies, College of William & Mary

Frequently Asked Questions

The Virtual Recruitment Fair is an online career fair platform that extends the opportunity for candidates to connect with schools looking to recruit diverse talent. (Mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and desktops are all compatible.)
Yes, anyone interested in attending a graduate school of education program is welcomed. This is an opportunity to learn more about the programs across the country.
  • Find programs that match your interests and qualifications
  • Upload resumes and other supporting documents for recruiters to review
  • Review in-depth university and program information prior to virtual career fair to customize resumes
  • Engage in real-time individual and group chats with recruiters
  • Apply to programs and schedule interviews
  • It’s FREE to participate
  • Review the organizations profiles in advance.
  • Develop a strategy - which universities do you most want to speak with?
  • Prepare questions before joining a chat session, or if you prefer, you can review others' questions in the public chat.
  • Write your elevator pitch, which you should strictly use in private interactions with recruiters (do not post these in the public chat room).
  • Not all recruiters will send email invitations to their chat sessions so join the event and visit schools that interest you. You are welcome to visit any chat sessions during the fair.
Everyone's goals & outcomes will be different. Here are some possibilities:
  • Research the colleges of education and their programs
  • Determine which programs are a strong match for your background
  • Submit applications to universities
  • Secure an interview during or after the event
Some recruiters use this forum for screening (and interviews take place afterward) while others conduct phone interviews, video interviews, or schedule in-person interviews during or after the event.
Register at https://diversityined.vfairs.com Pre-registration is already open and will be open through the end of the day of the Career Fair. Register early to give yourself time to study the list of participating schools and opportunities.
Upload your resume immediately after registering so recruiters will have access to it. Uploading your resume and/or cover letter is the first step in making your materials available to participating schools. After you upload your documents into the system, they are visible immediately for review by recruiters. Universities may begin screening resumes prior to the event and also invite you to visit their specific chat sessions and/or schedule video interviews before, during, or after the event hours.
Participants need only a computer and internet access to participate. Webcams, avatars, and photos are NOT required. Interactions between employers and participants will be primarily through text chatting. (Schools do have the ability to initiate one-on-one video chats with you. If this is the case, you should be dressed as if you were going on an interview. Make that first impression a good one! We also recommend you check what is visible behind you so that there is nothing to distract the recruiter.) Note: it is acceptable to indicate to a recruiter that you are unable to video chat, if this is not an option for you at the time of the request.
For the best experience, participants should log on using an up-to-date version of Google Chrome (preferred) or Firefox from a desktop/laptop; these are required to be able to view/hear any multimedia broadcasts presented by employers. The most up-to-date versions of Safari and Microsoft Edge will also work.
Check out the list of registered colleges and universities. Schools will continue to register leading up to the Virtual Recruitment Fair, so make sure to check back for an updated list.
Each college/university will host a chat room where you and other participants can ask questions and converse. The organization representatives will be listed once you are in the room. Private chatting is also possible between participants and recruiters.
You will need a webcam to participate in video chats or receive their audio/video broadcasts.
There is not a waiting list, just a natural ebb and flow of visitors. Recruiters may have a lot of traffic (just as in a live fair) and cannot reach everyone immediately. Remember that patience is highly appreciated by the recruiters and the right job is worth the wait!
