WorkForce West Virginia announces June 7 Statewide Virtual Job Fair 

CHARLESTON, W.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, June 7, from 12:00 – 3:00 pm.

“We invite all West Virginia job seekers and employers to participate in the June Virtual Job Fair,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “Since October, nearly 4,000 job seekers have registered to find their next job in the Mountain State and we’ve averaged approximately 120 employers per job fair.”

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

“These Virtual Job Fairs allow West Virginia job seekers to speak directly with companies, non-profit organizations and state agencies that are hiring,” said James Bailey, Secretary of the WV Department of Commerce. “We’ve seen nearly 6,000 jobs posted since this initiative began, with nearly 1,900 resumes submitted.”

Registration is required for both interested employers and job seekers. Click here to register as a jobseeker for the June 7 Statewide Virtual Job Fair.

When attending the event, job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and have a calm, clutter-free background, as employers may request to engage in a video interview. 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.

After registering for the first time, new employers will create a “Virtual Booth” to connect with job seekers. After completion, this booth will be available during subsequent job fairs.
