(Eureka)—Persons interested in filling educational positions in Humboldt County school districts and charter schools are encouraged to register for a virtual Education Job Fair to be hosted locally. The event is being held as a hiring event to bolster the local teacher workforce and connect those seeking employment in the local education landscape with employers.
The Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE) in partnership with the California Center on Teaching Careers will present a Virtual Education Job Fair on Wednesday, April 27th from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
The virtual event will be customized exclusively for the education profession. It will simulate the look and feel of an in-person job fair through a unique online platform that the HCOE Personnel department has created with the assistance of the California Center on Teaching Careers. The job fair will connect education credential holders, substitutes, paraprofessionals, and classified staff with Humboldt County school districts and charter schools. The Virtual Job Fair will support live chats and video conferences that attendees can participate in from anywhere that has an internet connection.
Humboldt County Assistant Superintendent, Educational Services, Dr. Colby Smart said, “Humboldt County’s school districts, charter schools, and the County Office of Education are wonderful places to impact the educational journey of students in Humboldt County. Teachers, Administrators, Bus Drivers, Paraprofessionals, Business staff, and more all play incredibly important roles in making our schools great places to learn. I highly recommend anyone interested in joining the educator workforce in our community to attend this unique virtual event.”
Because the event is being hosted locally, but held virtually, participants from anywhere will be presented with benefits of living and working in beautiful Humboldt County. Representatives from HCOE will be on-hand to explain what working in education jobs in Humboldt County looks like.
Pre-registration for the event is on now. Those who would like to participate may register here. The event for candidates is free to attend by registering by April 26; and local school districts who are interested in being involved can also sign up free of charge by April 14th.
