ATP Live Events: Live Chat & Virtual Job Fairs

ATP's Live Chats are online video presentations with special guests who take questions by text chat. Participants log in and watch the live video of the presenter and interact via a chat window by using the ATP Facebook page. Our special guests are working professionals from our various Alaska school district staff, and , and the Alaska Department of Education (DEED).

ATP’s Virtual Job Fairs and Live Chats are held during the peak hiring season, between February and June. Sometimes we host over 100 concurrent users.  It's a great way for you to get your questions about an Alaska job search answered by people in the know, or to interact with school district HR staff about current openings and jobs

Facebook Live Icon

This year's Live Chat schedule features a brand new interface - Facebook Live!

This new streaming video tool allows a much wider range of viewers to interact with our guests from their smart phones, tablets and computers, while still also providing a recording and archiving option for those who wish to view the events at a time that better fits their schedule.

The Alaska Teacher Placement Facebook page will carry the live stream as a regular "post" here:

ATP Facebook Page

Participants can choose to simply watch and listen, or can use their free Facebook account to post questions and reactions for our guests.   All live events will be recorded and viewable from the ATP Facebook page's video library. If you are having trouble viewing a video, Facebook maintains a helpful tutorial and searchable Help Center.

Come join the fun, meet someone new and learn about Alaska!

ATP Ustream Video Archives - Events Prior to 2017

ATP events from the ATP Ustream Channel were recorded until the fall of 2016.  Changes to the video storage policy at Ustream mean that these archival videos may or may not be available moving forward.  Ustream periodically cleans out the stored videos of long-time customers who do not pay for storage, so your experience may vary.
