MERC, otherwise known as the Massachusetts Educational Recruiting Consortium, is an organization of 42 Massachusetts colleges and universities, dedicated to facilitating the hiring process in education and related fields. This partnership between higher education and school personnel from across the country produces one of the finest annual recruiting events of its kind. Join us as MERC celebrates its 33rd year with the April 19th conference in Boston, MA.
The MERC Education Fair will take place
on Thursday, April 19, 2007 at the Bayside Expo and Executive Conference
Center. The fair hours are 9:00 am - 3:30 pm.
MERC has reserved a block of rooms at the Boston Marriott Quincy for our recruiters needing overnight accommodations on Wednesday April 18 and/or Thursday April 19.
NOTE: A very large city-wide conference has booked most of the lodging in the greater Boston area for the week of April 15 – 21, 2007. Many hotels are already completely sold out including the Doubletree at Bayside, a facility we have used over the past few years. Recruiters are strongly encouraged to reserve hotel space now; once our block is sold we will be unable to guarantee overnight space in the immediate area.
The MERC Recruitment event is limited to undergraduate, graduate, post-baccalaureates, and alumni from member colleges and universities. Unfortunately, we are unable to make exceptions for non-affiliated candidates. Candidate registration materials must be obtained from the Career Center of the appropriate college or university prior to the conference. Candidates complete their registration on-site.
Public and private schools/school systems are invited to participate.
Attendance is limited and available on a first-come, first serve
basis. MERC reserves the right to limit attendance to meet the
needs of our candidates. Employers may register online.
