EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - About one month after agreeing on a new teachers’ contract, the EVSC is now looking to hire people across the board.

The EVSC is pushing job openings by advertising pay raises for all open positions.

According to its website, there are more than 100 jobs open. Currently the highest category is student support services at 31 vacancies.

“We really have a wide variety of openings and I think that’s what makes it a good situation because people can clearly look for a position that works best for them,” said Jason Woebkenberg, the Chief Communications Officer for the EVSC.

Woebkenberg says he hopes the increased pay will make EVSC’s job openings more attractive.

“We’ve done everything possible with an increase of funding from the state so that we can increase the compensation for these positions to make them more desirable,” said Woebkenberg. “We live in a competitive environment so we want the best and the brightest and the most dedicated people to come to the EVSC and be part of our team.”

Despite looking to hire numerous people, Woebkenberg says the EVSC is not short staffed.

“We’re not short staffed,” said Woebkenberg. “I wouldn’t say that, but we’ve had to make adjustments here and there.”
