Prospective teachers are invited to attend Wayne County Public Schools' annual job fair on Saturday at Goldsboro High School from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Representatives from the 33 county schools will be on hand to answer questions about licensure, salary, benefits and scheduling as well as programs and job opportunities, including the lateral entry option.

Principals from each of the schools will discuss openings at their respective schools. On site interviews will be conducted and a temporary contract can be issued pending a background check.

The school system also offers a $2,000 sign on bonus for certified teachers, as well as a 6.5 percent annual supplement. Local businesses also participate in a discount program, providing incentives to new and currently employed teachers.
