DMPS Hosts Virtual Job Fair Throughout the Month of April

The Novel Coronavirus may have us working from home, but it doesn’t stop the important job of hiring teams of people to support our 33,000 students. It takes the cooperative effort of nearly 5,000 people to keep the district running smoothly every day.

Des Moines Public Schools is offering a unique way to apply for work from the comfort and safety of home. Job applicants may select a job, apply online and interview without ever leaving their houses. Qualified applicants will hear back from a DMPS Human Resources representative within 24 hours of completing an application, Monday – Friday. Most positions begin with the 2020-2021 school year.

“Hiring during the pandemic presents a special challenge,” HR Director of Human Resources – Classified Staff Sheila Mason said. “Regardless of when school starts, we will need a team of qualified individuals to serve our students, schools and community.”

The district needs full-time and part-time sign language interpreters, full-time special education associates, part-time bus drivers, and substitute nurses, teachers and associates.

The 2020 Virtual Job Fair runs April 1 – 30. Job seekers will find more information online.
