Halifax County school job fair draws healthy turnout / March 19, 2018
Halifax County Public Schools held its first-ever Job Fair on Saturday, and Assistant School Superintendent Valdivia Hall said the event was very successful in attracting potential employees.

By noon, two hours before the fair ended at 2 p.m., Hall said 70 people had already participated in the event. Several had also signed notices of intent to register for employment, she said.

“We were very excited to see the large number of people coming to look at possible employment. They came from Durham, Raleigh, Greensboro, Mecklenburg and Pittsylvania counties,” Hall explained.

The event, which was held in the lobby of Halifax County Middle School, began at 10 a.m. and Hall said there were interested people waiting for them when the doors opened.

School administrators worked throughout the event, showing off programs and answering questions from visitors.

The fair attracted people who not only looked at elementary, secondary and special education teaching positions, but also opportunities as substitutes, secretaries, custodians, paraprofessionals, bus drivers, substitute bus drivers and maintenance workers.

“I know that several were prospective graduates who were looking for job opportunities,” Hall said.
