EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES



Yancey County School System has launched a new employment application system.  The new NC School Jobs powered by PeopleAdmin, provides an innovative way to streamline the hiring process.  Applicants will experience an enhanced, user friendly system when applying for positions.  To apply for a career opportunity, click on the link below.

If you have previously completed an application with the Yancey County School System and are still interested in employment opportunities, you will need to complete an application in PeopleAdmin to be considered for employment.  Applications completed in the old application system will not be migrated over and cannot be used for employment.

Before signing up the first time you will need the following:

  • A personal email address – do not use a work email.
  • At least three (3) references (name, title and contact information) – one must be current or most recent supervisor.
  • Work experience with company name and dates of employment.
  • Some positions may require a resume.  If required, you must upload to your online portfolio instead of sending it by email.

(Google Chrome is the recommended internet browser for the application system)
