Sullivan County school districts to host job fair on March 16

March 8, 2016

 Sullivan County BOCES is hosting a job fair in collaboration with Sullivan County school districts on Thursday, March 16th. The event, which will take place from 2:30-6:00 p.m., will be held at the Elks Lodge on Darbee Lane in Liberty.

If you are looking for flexibility and steady work with great hours, substitute positions are available in all of the schools throughout the county. Substitute work is a perfect solution for parents who need a schedule that aligns to their children’s school calendar and events. In addition, substitute positions are ideal for individuals who are seeking part-time work and can only work specific days.

“The job fair is an ideal opportunity for people to learn more about careers within the BOCES and the school districts in Sullivan County. There are immediate openings for substitutes as well as a number of other positions both in the classroom and in support areas,” said Susan Schmidt, Acting CEO/Deputy Superintendent at Sullivan BOCES. “Most people do not realize the wide array of positions available in the field of education and substitute positions often lead to full-time employment,” she added. “We encourage individuals seeking new careers as well as college students and those looking to re-enter the workforce to attend the job fair. This will be a fabulous opportunity to ask questions and meet representatives from the different schools.”

Sullivan County school districts and the BOCES are recruiting for a large number of positions, including but not limited to: teaching, administration, data coordination, clerical, food service, operations & maintenance, coaching, summer school teaching and summer school support staff positions. For more information about specific job openings outside of the immediate need for substitutes potential applicants are encouraged to visit the school district and BOCES websites. Individuals attending the job fair are encouraged to bring copies of their resume and be prepared to complete an onsite interview. All attendees will be required to complete a general application and representatives from the participating districts will be available to answer questions about district specific employment opportunities.

Participating districts include Eldred, Fallsburg, Liberty, Livingston Manor, Monticello, Roscoe, Sullivan West, Tri-Valley and Sullivan BOCES.
