SAN JOSE, CA – Just last year, Yasmeen Husain was in attendance at the first annual Santa Clara County Classified Job Fair. She recalls learning about the event, hosted by the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE), while submitting documents in preparation for employment as a substitute teacher in Credential Services at the Ridder Park office.
"I read the sign outside and picked up an application from the Human Resources reception area," Husain said. "I became curious about the event because employees I met at the SCCOE were friendly, welcoming, and took the time to answer my questions."
This time around, she will be attending in a different capacity; as part of the Classified Personnel Services team screening and inviting candidates to the September 24 event. Last year's event was so successful for Husain that she was hired as a substitute/relief office worker and worked as a substitute employee for several months in Classified Personnel Services before joining the team as a permanent employee at the SCCOE.
"The Classified Job Fair was a great way for me to find out about the SCCOE and school districts," Husain said. "I felt encouraged to learn about various positions, meet with staff from different District Offices, and even interviewed for open positions. It's helpful to recall my experience as a candidate."
Sixteen Santa Clara County school districts are expected to attend the fair and have indicated openings in the following areas: paraeducators, food service workers, custodians, drivers (all levels), clerical/administrative assistants, and maintenance workers.
"Yasmeen is just one of many success stories from last year's event," said Philip J. Gordillo, Chief Human Resources Officer. "We are looking forward to another successful year connecting districts in need of qualified classified employees with candidates looking for a rewarding career in Santa Clara County school districts."
Applicants who register by the September 14 deadline will be pre-screened for the positions in which they're interested, and allowed in at 9 a.m. on the day of the fair. This will give them the first opportunity to meet with hiring managers and discuss their career goals. Walk-in registration and screening will be begin at 8 a.m. the day of the event.
