Event Details

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is looking to expand its teacher workforce.  Don't miss the biggest hiring event of the year!  More than 160 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.

We will not be staffing for school administration (Principals and Assistant Principals), central office, auxiliary, or unlicensed positions during this event.  Additionally, this event is not a transfer fair for internal (CMS) teachers - full time internal teachers are not eligible for this event. Teachers in End of Year (EOY) contracts are eligible to attend.


Is there an event website for more information?
Parking/transportation and hotel information can be found at - as the event gets closer, we will add information regarding how to prepare for the event, schools attending, and anticipated vacancies.

What should I bring to the event?
All candidates should bring multiple copies of their resume and dress professionally.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Email with any questions or give us a call (980) 343-1848.  We are unable to answer emails or phone calls on the day of the event.  The event will happen rain or shine.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Your registration is not transferrable as we collect unique data during the registration process.  Each candidate should have a separate registration. It is to your advantage to register in advance even if your plans change and you are unable to come the day of the event.

Can I update my registration information?
Yes! If your information has changed, please log in to your Eventbrite account and update.  If you have completed the CMS Application, you will also want to update your information in our application system.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Please bring either your printed ticket or a mobile device that we may scan with your event confirmation/QR code.

I'm coming from out-of-town, where should I stay?
Feel free to explore any of the hotels near the Charlotte airport or the downtown area of Charlotte.  We have secured a group rate of $129 or $139/night (depending on room type) with the Hampton Inn Charlotte-Uptown. This hotel is just a short walk to the Charlotte Convention Center.



I do not hold a teaching license.  Am I eligible to attend?
In order to attend, you must meet one of the following criteria:

  • In process of completing a bachelors degree in education/currently student teaching
  • Have an expired license
  • Have an out of state license
  • Currently hold a Lateral Entry license in the state of North Carolina
  • Be affilliated with the Teach for America (2019 Charlotte Area Corps Member) or the CMS Residency Program

What happened to Lateral Entry?
Lateral entry is an "alternate" route to teaching for qualified individuals outside of the public education system. Traditionally, CMS has hired many teachers through this pathway to fill vacancies. Please be aware that the State Board of Education is phasing out the “Lateral Entry Pathway.” This pathway will no longer be offered effective June 30, 2019.  Therefore, Lateral Entry candidates who have not recieved their Lateral Entry License will not be considered for hire at this event.  

Is there another option for someone without a license to attend?  What about candidates eligible for the NC Residency License?
We will not be able to accomodate individuals who are not currently in a pathway to licensure at this event.  We will have a July event specifically for those who are interested in alternative licensure through 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, including completing pre-service requirements (12 hours) prior to teaching.
