Finding employees for hard-to-fill positions is as important for local schools now as ever and, like a lot of other things, can be even more challenging during the pandemic.
That's why the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is holding a virtual job fair June 2.
Educators seeking jobs in San Diego County schools can receive credential advisement, employment information, and possibly even an offer of employment, all online.
"The event is a great opportunity for you to connect with representatives from districts and charter schools regarding job openings and anticipated openings," said Dr. Sheiveh Jones, director of teacher effectiveness and preparation for SDCOE.
The job fair will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. June 2 for credentialed teachers, those looking to change careers, recent college graduates, military veterans, those with provisional internship and short-term staff permits, substitute teachers, current university and community college students, school nurses and counselors, instructional aides, and other support employees. Register here.
