Hello,

I've been looking for a website that I can register and apply for school employment. Everything that I have found so far is for teachers only. I am a secretary/clerk.

Can someone please help?

Many thanks

In a specific city or county?

No, at this point I'm just looking to see what is out there. Is each county independent?

Well, yes. Each county and many cities have their own school systems, and they post job openings on their individual websites. They aren't usually found on the usual job search sites.

There are 95 counties in Tennessee, If you at least give me a region, I can give you a good start.

Or you can Google, for example, "Knoxville school system" and look under "Employment" or "Careers" or a related heading.

Around here, most principals hire those positions anyway, so contacting a principal at a school you like would be good.

It also seems like at least at my kids' school. There is one professional admin and a lot of mothers that volunteer in the office so there isn't a huge need for secretaries.

I feel that secretarial work over all is being phased out . The county I live in here in WV the school office staff is hired from a substitute list, so you have to have been available for sporadic temporary work for an indefinate period of time before being offered a full time job. I have never been able to work sporadically, I'm single so therefore need full time employment with benefits. All counties are independent here too.

I'll sit down soon and try and narrow the search area. I just want to move out of my little bitty boring town in WV.

I really don't know where to start I only know that I want a medium sized town with stuff going on that I can volunteer for.... I also pet sit in addition to working full time so I would like to be able to do that wherever I go.

Thanks everyone

Wow, that sounds like a pretty backwards way to do it, especially given all the information school secretaries are supposed to know and situations they have to deal with daily.

I would focus on the areas where there is a lot of population growth and they are building more schools. In Middle TN, where I live, the counties that are seeing the biggest influx of residents with kids are Rutherford (biggest city: Murfreesboro), Williamson (biggest city: Franklin), Sumner (Hendersonville/Gallatin), and Montgomery (Clarksville). Each of the cities I mentioned has at least one county and perhaps one city school system (not sure about Sumner Co. cities.).

All of those areas have many small towns around them that have lots of stuff to do yet are close to whatever "action" you may need.

I will try to post links to their websites that may have secretarial positions. Some of the big high schools even have athletic secretaries, which could be an option.

Rutherford County Schools: Employment - Employment
Murfreesboro City Schools: Careers - Murfreesboro City Schools - Murfreesboro City Schools

Williamson County Schools: Williamson County Schools
Franklin Special School District: Franklin Special School District - Jobs and Applications

Sumner County Schools: Apply for a Job

Clarksville/Montgomery County Schools: http://www.cmcss.net/
