HISD’s annual job fair draws potential employees

HUNTSVILLE — To get a jump on filling its 2010-11 school year vacancies, the Huntsville Independent School District Human Resources Department will host its annual job fair from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Huntsville High School’s Paul Bohan Gym, located at 441 FM 2821 East in Huntsville.

In its fifth year, the local employment search event draws applicants from all over the Huntsville area, including Houston, Conroe, New Waverly, College Station and Willis.

“We have a lot of openings in almost every area,” HISD Director of Human Resources Regina Ginsel said Monday, mentioning openings in teaching and paraprofessional areas as well as in maintenance, child nutrition and transportation departments.

“Principals and directors from each campus and department will be available to take applications and speak with potential employees,” Ginsel said. “Interviews will be scheduled by the directors at a later date.”

Plenty of incentives are available to potential HISD employees, Ginsel explained.

“A $1,000 annual stipend is available for any HISD employee who wishes to continue their education,” she said. “We also have $3,000 stipends for bilingual teachers in pre-kindergarten through the sixth grade, and for math and science teachers at the high school level.”

Last year’s job fair drew over 100 job applicants, Ginsel said, with several vacancies being filled as a result.

“HISD is a progressive and outstanding district,” she said. “We invite everyone to come meet us and see what we have to offer.”

Those planning to attend the job fair are asked not only to bring a “handful of resumes” to the event, but to submit their application online at
