The second of two two countywide job fairs connecting residents to a range of open positions in the education field will be hosted by the Santa Barbara County Education Office, 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25 at Santa Maria-Bonita School District Souza Center, 708 S. Miller St., Santa Maria.

The first job fair was held last week in Santa Barbara. The events are free to attend and do not require pre-registration.

School districts throughout Santa Barbara County are seeking the best talent to serve students and keep schools and offices operating effectively.

In addition to teachers and instructional support staff, schools need professionals in information technology, accounting, human resources, maintenance, and other fields. Not all jobs require a teaching credential or even a college degree. 

Job fair attendees will connect with:

  • staff from local school districts throughout Santa Barbara County to learn about job openings at a district near you
  • Representatives from colleges and universities that offer credential programs and other courses of study for those interested in careers in education
  • Credentials specialists to get advice and guidance about pursuing a career as a credentialed education professional, such as a teacher, speech pathologist, or school nurse.
