Big teacher job fair coming up where jobs will be offered on the spot

If you’re looking for a job in education, you’ll want to be at this event

ROANOKE, Va. – The West Virginia Public Education Consortium hosts a job fair every year where some positions will be offered to qualified candidates.

Terry Arbogast is the Executive Director of the WVPEC and says you should bring a resume, dress for an interview and be prepared to answer questions from school districts.

Two dozen local school districts were at the annual job fair in 2019 and nearly 200 people preregistered for the job fair, the highest number they’ve ever seen according to Arbogast.

The consortium is a nonpartisan group, but it supports helping teachers any way it can.

“That’s part of the reason we’re not getting people into education, because the salaries are not compatible with other jobs they could have,” Arbogast said.

Event info: Saturday, January 25 from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Salem Civic Center

You’re asked to register ahead of time for the event. You can register here and find more info as well.
