Johnston County Public Schools’ Job Fair Is a Huge Success
On Saturday, April 15, 2023, Johnston County Public Schools (JCPS) had its annual job fair at West Johnston High. The event welcomed candidates from as close as Johnston County, and many from out of state.
“The cafeteria was filled with positive energy, and a steady stream of candidates throughout the morning,” Brian Vetrano, JCPS Chief of Human Resources, said.
School administrators from all 48 schools were on hand to greet candidates face-to-face, tell them about their particular school and its openings, and answer questions.
For Lydia Guy, her only question was which school she would get to be a teacher. As she completes her student teaching, Guy knows without a doubt that JCPS is where she wants to launch her teaching career because of its community and small, home feel.
Although the event was advertised to recruit teacher applicants, the administrators also met with individuals interested in classified and administrative positions. Vetrano said he was pleased with the number of early contracts that were issued.
Johnston County native and JCPS graduate, Misty De La Cruz, was one of the early signers and secured a position as a science teacher at Benson Middle. She is proud to be a part of JCPS’s great legacy of amazing students, staff, and families.
JCPS is planning future events in preparation for the 2023-2024 school year. Candidates interested in joining the team of one of the fastest growing school districts in North Carolina, go to https://www.johnston.k12.nc.us/hr for a list of job openings.
