Palm Beach State College Partners with CareerSource Palm Beach County to Host the Job Fair on Lake Worth Campus

March 28

March 28 Early Childhood & Afterschool Job Fair to feature more than 35 employers hiring for more than 175 jobs

Lake Worth – More than 35 employers, including child care centers, public and private schools, and recreation centers, will recruit for more than 175 positions at the Early Childhood & Afterschool Job Fair, Tuesday, March 28, from 2 to 6 p.m., at Palm Beach State College’s Public Safety Conference Center, room PSD 108, on the Lake Worth campus, 4200 Congress Ave.

Free and open to the public, this second annual Early Childhood and Afterschool Job Fair is again co-sponsored by Palm Beach State College and CareerSource Palm Beach County. Pre-registration is advised for speedy entry to the job fair. Visit http://cspbcapps.careersourcepbc.com/index.php/registration/jobfair/199.

Job seekers will be able to apply for full- and part-time positions, ranging from early childhood educators, teacher assistants, tutors, and center directors and administrators to preschool and VPK teachers, afterschool counselors, substitute teachers, bus drivers and more.

Exhibiting employers include the School District of Palm Beach County, Academy of Little Learners, All About Kids Learning Centers, Chesterbrook Academy, Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, City of West Palm Beach, Kingswood Academy, KLA Schools, Palm Beach Preschool, ChildCare Careers, Palm Beach Maritime Academy, West Jupiter Community Group, City of Greenacres, YMCA of South Palm Beach County and more.

“With this job fair, we hope to help the industry find and hire qualified candidates before the start of community summer programs and the start of the school year in August,” said Susy Martinez White, director of Early Childhood and K-12 Education programs at PBSC. “State laws dictate the teacher-child ratio in the classrooms, putting pressure on employers who don’t have enough staff to handle the number of children they serve. Last year’s job fair was very successful, and we hope to have an even better turnout this year.”

Palm Beach State College also will exhibit as the leading educator of child care and afterschool professionals in Palm Beach County and the county’s Training Coordinating Agency for the Florida Department of Children and Families. PBSC offers many options for training, from entry-level and advanced certificates to associate and bachelor’s degrees. Plus, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about scholarships through Prime Time Palm Beach County and the Institute of Excellence in Early Care and Education that enable child care and afterschool professionals to continue their education.
