Job Fair Aimed to Create Teaching Jobs in Jacksonville

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Thousands of eager job seekers showed up for a job fair in North Carolina, an event that was created to help spur on the addition of teaching jobs in Jacksonville.

Many hopeful educators and former educators who have been affected by the economy crowded into Northside High School in Onslow County. Some interviewed for an article said they drove across state lines just to attend the fair.

The North Carolina unemployment rate is down to 10.3% from 10.8%, which means about 15,000 people have been lucky enough to get jobs the past month. Or they may no longer qualify for benefits, which means they aren’t figured into the unemployment figures.

The job fair was aimed at putting educators back to work in a county that has been hit hard. Schools all over the state sent representatives to talk with job seekers.

Some attendees were already employed with the district but wanted to show up to educate themselves on future job prospects. Others had been unemployed for months and are eager to get back to work.
