Community Education Corner: Cloquet Schools host information session, seek workers
To learn more about the opportunities in the Cloquet School District, including job duties, hours, pay, and benefits, please attend our “Becoming a Cloquet District Employee'' event on Thursday, Jan. 6, at 6 p.m. in the Cloquet Middle School cafeteria.
Change is in the air. We are seeing it at the national level, the state level, as well as locally here in Cloquet.
One of the major changes we are seeing is in the workforce. Help wanted signs are everywhere. Businesses are having to reduce days/hours due to lack of staff. Wages are rising as businesses compete for those seeking employment. Members of the older generation are retiring. Employees are resigning from their positions to explore new opportunities, whether to work with a different company or try entrepreneurship.
School districts, including Cloquet, are not immune to this shift, and we seek ways to attract the staff needed to operate day-to-day. As an example, substitute wages were recently increased to add incentive to work in our school district.
If you or someone you know are seeking a new opportunity or a change in career, we encourage you to consider working for the Cloquet School District. Many positions are offered during the weekday which makes for an ideal work/family balance. Substitute positions allow flexibility in choosing which days work best for each applicant. This is great for retirees, college students or those looking to supplement their income. If you are younger with limited work history, working for a school district is a great way to build your resume.
