How do I find out about current job opportunities with the Placer County Office of Education (PCOE)?

​PCOE utilizes EdJoin (Education Job Opportunities Information Network) to post our job openings. Vacancy notices are also available at our office at 360 Nevada Street, Auburn, CA 95603. Some positions are also advertised in local newspapers and publications.

​How do I apply for a position with PCOE?

​Applications are only accepted for positions that are currently open for recruitment. Applications may be completed online through EdJoin or submitted in printed form for certain positions. Paper applications may be obtained by visiting our office located at 360 Nevada Street in Auburn. Each position has specific requirements for applying and these will be listed on EdJoin or on a vacancy notice. All of the required documents listed must be submitted with an application or it will be considered incomplete. When completing an EdJoin application, the preference is to scan the required documents into the EdJoin application; applicants may also mail applications to PCOE, Attention: Human Resources, 360 Nevada Street, Auburn, CA 95603 or fax them to 530.889.5909.
