SALT LAKE CITY — Each week, FOX 13 has a segment called, “Work for us Wednesday.”

It’s part of a stationwide effort to get Utahns back to work and help them make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Jordan School District is looking to hire for a variety of positions.

Students in the district will attend in person classes Monday through Thursday, and do online learning on Fridays.

Right now, there are about 20 teaching openings available, both full and part time. There may be an opportunity for signing bonuses, depending on the position.

The district also needs substitute teachers, bus drivers, and classroom assistants.

The biggest demand is for custodians. They will regularly sanitize and disinfect all schools to make sure they’re safe for students.

“Even in times like this, there’s some opportunities where you’re going to come out and you can make a difference for kids,” said Kevin Sprague, head custodian at Mountain Ridge High School. “That’s the cool thing about this. Not only can you get some temporary help and support with what you’re doing, but you’re going to make an impact on kids.”

You can apply on theJordan School District website. Administrators are on hand to walk you through the application process.

The Department of Workforce Services post jobs available across the state.

This week’s hot jobs include customer service representatives, warehouse workers, sales associates, registered nurses, CDL drivers and software developers.

Several companies are hiring production workers, including Aerotek, Intermountain Healthcare and Your Employment Solutions.
