KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WFFT) - Schools in the region are struggling to fill every position.

That is why many are hosting job fairs to attract more candidates.

East Noble School Corporation is hosting its first job fair next week.

"We have a need to truly want to help and support our youth and be apart of the East Noble family," said superintendent Ann Linson. "Honestly, Kendallville has an abundance of career and job openings. If anyone wants to work, they just need to come up to Kendallville."

East Allen County Schools has hosted job fairs in the past and will be hosting its third one March 20.

"We do it year after year because it has been working. It's been a phenomenal thing and I love how we do it early," said EACS human resources director Tina Grady.

There are many positions open in both districts. Most teaching positions are for the new school year, but many are open now such as bus drivers, custodians, and food service employees.
