On January 30, job seekers from Troup County and surrounding areas gathered in the halls of the Troup County School System (TCSS) administrative services building before the doors opened to the first ever TCSS Job Fair.
Sequita Freeman, TCSS chief human resource officer, said, “As we enter our recruiting season, it’s important to be in front of potential candidates. Showing them what the school system, and the county, has to offer as they consider future employment or relocation opportunities is key in getting the right people for the jobs we have available.”
Some of those individuals included former students, current employees seeking career advancement, and educators looking to relocate to Troup County. When candidates entered the lobby, TCSS employees greeted them in the registration area before they proceeded to their interested division – Elementary, Middle, High and Special Education.
“We are looking for innovative, engaging, and certified people who can connect with the students and values of TCSS,” Freeman stated. “The community support and teacher interaction, along with the huge turnout, made this event a success.”
Overall, 60 employees greeted and screened 79 applicants. Forty-seven interviews were conducted on-site. After this process, candidates were routed to the exit area where they received complimentary bags and information from TCSS, LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce, and Woodland Trail Apartments. Other partners included:
• Dye’s Dust Control
• LongHorn Steakhouse
• Lewis, Taylor & Todd, P.C.
• Chick-fil-A on Lafayette Parkway
• Area Realtors and Housing Agencies The system is currently accepting applications for all teaching positions, especially those in the critical fields of Math, Science, CTAE, and Special Education.
