WorkForce West Virginia announces September 6 Statewide Virtual Job Fair

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – WorkForce West Virginia today announced 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, September 6, from 1 – 3:30 pm.

“We invite West Virginians looking for the next step in their career to join employers from across the state for the opportunity to learn more about opportunities within West Virginia,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “Since these events began, nearly 5,600 job-seekers have registered and visited more than 51,000 booths to connect with organizations hiring in a variety of industries.”

Registration is required for both interested employers and job seekers. Click here to register as a jobseeker for the September 6 Statewide Virtual Job Fair. Virtual job fairs allow job seekers to apply, live chat, video chat and interview virtually with employers participating in the event.

“WorkForce West Virginia’s Statewide Virtual Job Fairs provide a unique opportunity for job seekers and employers to connect, ask questions and submit resumes from the comfort of their phones,” said James Bailey, Secretary of the WV Department of Commerce. “We are happy to be able to continue bringing job opportunities to the hard working people of our state, in an easily accessible way.”

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.
