Many people looking for jobs may not have considered employment in the education field. Maybe they don’t realize there are diverse career options beyond the familiar classroom teachers and school administrators. Or maybe they don’t know where to find job openings to work at a school, school district, or county office of education. However, there are many opportunities for a rewarding career with great benefits in the world of education—in and out of the classroom.
This Saturday, March 18, 2023, from 9 a.m.–12 p.m., the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) has teamed up with more than 60 education agencies from across Northern California to host an employment fair to explain and promote the benefits of working in education. The goal is to recruit applicants for a wide range of positions supporting grades PK–12. Jobs are available for teachers; language, speech and hearing therapists; mental health clinicians; para-professional educators; office staff; technical workers; facilities staff; food service employees; and many others across the Bay Area, Foothills, Northern, Sacramento, and Valley regions.
The event is free and candidates may attend in person or virtually. (Some agencies will be participating remotely, while others will be on-site. A list of participating agencies details who will be on-site-only, online-only, or available both ways.)
