Teacher Career Fair



Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is looking to expand its teacher workforce.  Don't miss the biggest hiring event of the year!  More than 50 schools will be interviewing and selecting candidates for licensed/certified positions including, teachers, psychologists, media specialists and school counselors.  We welcome candidates from both in and out of state but we do require that all candidates attending are eligible for a license in NC. 

Join us in Charlotte, NC on Thursday, July 18 from 2:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the E.E. Waddell Language Academy. 

Who can attend:

  • Candidates with an active or expired Teaching License (in or out of state)

  • Candidates who have graduated or will graduate from an approved Teacher Education program by August 2019

  • Candidates currently teaching in NC under a Lateral Entry License

  • Licensed Support Staff (e.g. Counselors, Psychologists, Speech Language Pathologists, Media Specialists, etc.)

  • CMS Teachers currently on an End of Year (EOY) contract who have not been declared.

Is there another option for someone without a license to attend?  What about candidates eligible for the NC Residency License?
If you are interested and qualify for an alternative license through the Residency License, we welcome you to attend this event.  We strongly encourage you to attend the Licensure Information Session and the EPP Open House which will begin promtly at 1:00pm.  You are also required to bring your official, degree dated transcripts to attend the fair.

What is the Residency License?

The Residency License will replace lateral entry as the alternative pathway to NC licensure.  This is a one year license that is renewable twice.  Candidates must:

  • Be enrolled in a recognized Educator Preparation Program (EPP);

  • Hold a bachelor's degree with a minimum GPA of 2.7;

  • Have completed coursework relevant to the requested licensure area OR passed the relevant content area examination; and

  • Meet all other requirements established by the State Board.

​Who should not attend:

  • Additionally, this event is not a transfer fair for internal (CMS) teachers - full time internal teachers are not eligible for this event.
