WorkForce West Virginia has 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 from noon until 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
“We have seen unprecedented turnouts at the past two Statewide Virtual Job Fairs,” said Scott Adkins, acting commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “Since we’ve started these monthly events, nearly 680 job seekers have registered to attend. Participating employers have received 350 resumes. It has been exciting to connect so many West Virginians with these great organizations across the state. Whether you’re looking for seasonal work, or want to take the next step in your career, this virtual event is a convenient and innovative way to connect with West Virginia companies.”
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. To register for the Dec. 7 Statewide Virtual Job Fair as either an employer or jobseeker, go to https://app.premiervirtual.com/events/8952fdc0-bb7d-4f89-8ef5-238f3ebd1c4b/monthly-statewide-virtual-job-fair-december-2022.
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 job seekers. After completion, this booth will be available during subsequent job fairs.
