The most in-demand ESP positions at our school sites are paraeducators - special education, bus drivers/aides, mascot club associates, and aides/crossing guards. 

About the Hybrid Job Fair

PVSchools Job Fair will be a hybrid of an in-person and virtual experience. During the hybrid job fair, participants will have the opportunity to meet administration teams and participate in virtual interviews with additional team members. 

The in-person fair at Paradise Valley High School will be social-distanced. Virtual interviews will be available from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., with some after-hours offered per individual sites/departments.

Job seekers will receive a PVSchools bag with instructions, information, headphones, and an interview card. Participants will move through the Fair Rooms and collect interview stickers on their interview card. Participants will meet district and school administrators and secure interview slots according to their employment interests and skill set. When interviews are scheduled, job seekers will participate in virtual interviews either in the media center, on their personal phone, or from home.

Job seekers should explore our Job Fair webpage for information about departments and schools, available positions, salary/wages, and benefits of joining our PVSchools team.  Participants should also share their information with each department or school they may have any interest in.
