Most of our member towns in metropolitan Boston are longstanding participants in METCO, a voluntary urbansuburban student transfer program for students of color.

We at the Massachusetts Partnership for Diversity in Education encourage you to learn more about obtaining employment opportunities through our organization.

Openings are available in all academic areas and grade levels, and at all levels of experience and one contact will put you in touch for employment opportunities in all districts! If you believe it is important to make a positive change and work with the best in a supportive environment, we encourage you to submit your resume, or call a member school directly.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Virtual Recruitment Fair is an online career fair platform that extends the opportunity for new and experienced job-seekers to connect with employers looking to recruit and hire diverse talent. (Mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and desktops are all compatible.)
  • Find open career opportunities that match your interests and qualifications
  • Upload resumes and other supporting documents for employers to review
  • Review in-depth career and company information prior to virtual career fair to customize resumes
  • Engage in real-time individual and group chats with recruiters
  • Apply to jobs and schedule interviews
  • It’s FREE to participate
  • Review the organizations' profiles in advance.
  • Develop a strategy - which employers 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 employers (do not post these in the public chat room).
  • Not all employers will send email invitations to their chat sessions so join the event and visit employers that interest you. You are welcome to visit any chat sessions during the fair.
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. (Employers 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 an employer 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.
