ROBERTSDALE, Ala. (WKRG) — With 4,000 employees, the Baldwin County school system is the county’s largest employer. They want to get even bigger, hosting a job fair on Wednesday to fill vacancies across the system.
The Robertsdale Coliseum has transformed into a one-stop-shop for those looking to find employment, re-enter the workforce, or change careers.
“We’re hiring for custodial, for the cafeteria, and we also have a teaching position, and we have teaching positions open,” J. Larry Newton principal Patrice Wolfe said.
It doesn’t matter what you were looking for, because it seems the school system has an opening.
“I would say over the last two years it has definitely become more difficult to fill those positions,” Wolfe said. “Some of our positions have been open since the beginning of the school year and some have opened recently.”
Tenaysha Carroll from Spanish Fort was checking all the opportunities but was looking for something specific. “I’ve been in human resources for 16 years and unfortunately I couldn’t find what I wanted to do. She spoke with several different power models from across the county and was able to showcase several applications.
Teresa McMaster has experience in special education. “It’s a great way to introduce yourself and meet the school and people around it,” McMaster said.
If you were unable to make it to the job fair and are interested, go to www.BCBE.org and click on the human resources tab and all available jobs will be listed.
