WorkForce West Virginia announces new Statewide Virtual Job Fairs
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — WorkForce West Virginia announces a series of Statewide Virtual Job Fairs. Held the first Wednesday of every month from 12:00 - 3:00 pm, these events will kick off October 5 through June 2023.
“Workforce West Virginia has been conducting virtual job fairs since August 2021,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “We have seen continued success with this platform and are expanding these efforts to connect West Virginia employers and residents looking to advance or change careers. These monthly fairs are a fantastic chance to pair qualified job seekers with a vast number of career opportunities here in the Mountain State.”
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 first Statewide Virtual Job Fair as either an employer or job seeker.
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 jobseekers. After completion, this booth will be available during subsequent job fairs.
