PDS Hosts Fall Job Fair

Friday, January 05, 2018

On Dec. 4, WCE’s Professional Development System office hosted the fourth annual PDS Fall Intern Job Fair. The event gave WCE seniors the opportunity to meet with principals, human resource directors and other representatives to discuss potential job opportunities in area schools.

Nine district and school partners participated in the event. Participating school districts were Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, Jones, New Hanover, Onslow, Pender and Sampson county schools. Representatives from Cape Fear Center for Inquiry also participated in the event.

Immediately following the job fair, district representatives joined Watson faculty in a PDS Partner Luncheon to discuss issues of teacher recruitment and retention. Small groups shared innovative ways they are working to recruit and retain teachers as well as future possibilities for collaboration.
