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, July 5, from 1:00 – 3:30 pm.
“We invite all West Virginia employers and job seekers to participate in the July Virtual Job Fair,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “We have seen a great deal of success with these job fairs since they began last October and are excited to announce updated hours for these events, which are now scheduled from 1:00 until 3:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month. Job seekers can log in at their convenience and participate wherever they have an Internet connection.”
Virtual job fairs allow job seekers to apply, live chat, video chat and interview virtually with employers participating in the event.
“Through these Virtual Job Fairs, job seekers can speak with West Virginia employers, submit resumes and learn more about the fantastic opportunities available to start a new job or advance an existing career, right here in the Mountain State,” said James Bailey, Secretary of the WV Department of Commerce.
Registration is required for both interested employers and job seekers. Click here to register as a jobseeker for the July 5 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.
