on

CHARLESTONW.Va. — WorkForce West Virginia announces the next date in a series of Statewide Virtual Job Fairs. Both employers and job seekers are invited to participate in the virtual event on Wednesday, Jan. 4 from 12:00 - 3:00 pm.

“As we kick off our first Statewide Virtual Job Fair of 2023, we’re thrilled to continue the momentum of this event. In the past three months, we’ve seen nearly 1,300 registered attendees and more than 350 registered employers,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “These job fairs provide an amazing opportunity for residents to connect with open jobs with both West Virginia state agencies and employers in the nonprofit and private sectors.”

Job seekers can speak with representatives from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, The West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation, The West Virginia Division of Rehabilitation Services, and many others. 

Virtual job fairs allow job seekers to apply, live chat, video chat and interview virtually with employers participating in the event.

Registration is required for both interested employers and job seekers. Click here to register for the Jan. 4 Statewide Virtual Job Fair as either an employer or jobseeker.   

The Virtual Statewide Job Fair portal features a Job Seeker Training video, a list of participating employers, and channels for attendees to register and log in. Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and have a calm, clutter-free background, as employers may request to engage in a video interview.

Upon registration, employers will create a “Virtual Booth” to connect with job seekers. After completion, this booth will be available during subsequent job fairs.
