Crowd shot from the Cumberland County Schools' job fair held Saturday, April 28, 2018.More than 400 potential candidates hoping to find just the right position ‘turned out’ for the Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) Teacher Job Fair, which took place Saturday, April 28 at Gray’s Creek High School.

“The turnout is exciting, and is a result of strategic recruiting efforts the district has engaged in to attract candidates from which principals can select,” said Ruben Reyes, the associate superintendent of CCS’ Human Resources. “Our mission is to ensure we have high-quality candidates so principals can hire excellent teachers and support personnel.”

While, the three-hour event is not the only opportunity CCS’ principals have to recruit candidates, principals and their staff members from all 86 of the district’s schools represented their schools in order to share information with potential candidates.

Under Reyes’ leadership, CCS’ Human Resources office also uses other opportunities to recruit, from attendance at statewide and national recruitment fairs and university job fairs, to utilizing virtual opportunities to interview candidates from across the country.

Many principals expressed their satisfaction with Saturday’s event and said they left feeling as though they were successful in finding the right candidates for their schools.
