Cobb County hiring hundreds of teachers | Events
COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- The Cobb County School District hopes to find hundreds of new teachers through a large job fair next month.
Certified teaching positions at all levels of instruction will be available at the event. It is the district's first major hiring event in eight years. Kevin Kiger, the district's executive director of employment, said representatives from every Cobb County school will attend the career fair.
With more than 13,500 employees, the district is Cobb County's largest employer.
The job fair will be Wednesday, Apr. 15 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at McEachern High School, which is located at 2400 New MacLand Road in Powder Springs. It was originally supposed to be at the Smyrna Community Center, but an overwhelming response forced the district to find a larger location.
"We have so much interest in coming to work for our district that we are moving the event to McEachern High School to handle the volume of applicants," Kiger said.
