In an effort to fill a large number of vacant positions, the Oswego School District 308 has streamlined its hiring process and is offering open interview events for job applicants this month.
Open interviews are being held on Thursday, Nov. 4; Tuesday, Nov. 9; and Thursday, Nov. 11, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the District Administration Center, 4175 Route 71 in Oswego–enter door 2.
The district currently has openings for teaching assistants, substitutes, bus monitors, bus drivers, custodians, recess supervisors, nurses, bilingual and dual language teachers, deans, interpreters, special education teachers and more. Positions have a typical work week of 30-40 hours per week, in a predictable schedule.
Applicants should bring along two forms of identification, contact information for references, details on past employment and education, and a cancelled check for payroll. District staff will assist interested applicants throughout the process.
In a statement, the district announced that In one visit to an open interview event, individuals can apply for a position, talk with human resources specialists regarding licensings and requirements, meet with a member of the district or school administration for an interview, and may leave with a written contingent offer of employment.
This new way of making employment more accessible and the opportunity to join the staff of SD 308 easier is an effort to help fill the large number of vacancies across the district, according to the statement.
“We want everyone to know that the school district is offering job opportunities across many disciplines,’’ said Superintendent John Sparlin in the statement. “Schools can provide unique opportunities for parents to work the same schedule as their child’s school, with holidays and breaks off. Our benefits package is comprehensive and generous, but most importantly working in a school district brings fulfillment, knowing that you are contributing towards the educational success of young people.”
