INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: William C. Bosher, Jr.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Virginia's PEN - Job Opportunities in Virginia Education (JOVE) 

 
DOE has established an employment informational system on Virginia's
PEN which allows public school systems in Virginia to list job
vacancies and opportunities through the Internet.  Prior to
establishing this system, there was no centralized source for
individuals to list and reference available public education
employment opportunities within the Commonwealth.  Now we are able to
offer to local school divisions a free and voluntary education job
listing service which will reach employment markets on a world-wide
basis.

Attached is a suggested format for entering employment opportunities
into the JOVE system.  Information entered into JOVE will
automatically purge outstanding job listings every 60 calendar days. 
If more than 60 calendar days are needed for recruitment, the job
listing may be reactivated for 30 day intervals.

To view JOVE, look under "Executive Forum" on Virginia's PEN, or under
JOVE on DOE's homepage.  DOE will not be responsible for improper
information entered into the system and is not liable for the
integrity of information entered into JOVE.  DOE maintains the right
to monitor and control access to JOVE.

Assistance with acquiring access to enter employment vacancy data into
JOVE should be directed to Ms. Bernie Chamberlain at (804) 371-7587. 
Questions regarding appropriate use of JOVE as an effective
recruitment tool may be directed to Mr. Harvey K. Waters, DOE
Employment Manager at (804) 225-2749.
