The Franklin Special School District invites all qualified applicants to come to its first annual Recruitment Fair, to be held Saturday, March 30, from 9 – 11 a.m. at Poplar Grove School in Franklin. Representatives from every school, as well as district staff with openings to share, will be under one roof to meet interested job applicants.

The FSSD Recruitment Fair is the perfect time to update your resume and meet your future employer. FSSD Human Resources Supervisor Leslie Duke says applicants should be prepared to speak to hiring managers for all departments at the fair. “We welcome those interested in teaching, school nutrition, paraprofessional work, school nursing, driving a bus, technology, maintenance, and child care,” Duke said.

FSSD recruiters are looking to fill both full-time and part-time positions, as well as the many summer jobs that need to be filled in the Summer MAC program.

“Interviews will be conducted on site directly with hiring managers so we strongly encourage applicants to bring their resumes,” Duke said. “We do have preliminary contracts available for open teaching positions, however, we are looking to fill all types of positions that will become available throughout the hiring season.”

Positions are fluid at the end of the year and throughout the summer, so having your application on file now with the district ensures you are in the conversation when those jobs come available.
