NOTE: Interested teachers should submit a registration form and fully complete the online licensed personnel employment application found on the Petal School District webpage under Information then Employment Opportunities.

    Once a registration form has been submitted, the applicant will receive a confirmation email reserving their time for a 10-minute interview with the school principals indicated on the form. The Job Fair serves as an initial introduction of potential candidates to the school principals. Once teaching openings occur, selected candidates will be called back for full interviews.

    Please note that there will be a delay in confirmation for registration forms submitted between November 21-25 and December 19-January 1 due to Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

    It is recommended that candidates supply the following to the principals at the job fair:

    • Resume (3-5 copies)
    • Recent photo (3-5 copies)
    • Current Mississippi Educator License if applicable (3-5 copies)

    Interviews for the job fair are limited to 48 participants for each grade span. Once that limit is reached, applicants will be placed on a waiting list for the preferred grade.
