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, Mar. 1, from 12:00 – 3:00 pm. Early access to the virtual event opens on Feb. 27.

“If you’re looking for a new job or thinking about starting a whole new career, we invite you to connect with these fantastic West Virginia employers during our March Statewide Virtual Job Fair,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “We continue to encourage West Virginia job seekers and employers to take advantage of this free online platform to connect and fill open positions across our great state. Since the beginning of these fairs, job seekers have submitted over 1,200 resumes to West Virginia employers.”

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 as an employer or jobseeker for the Mar. 1 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.
