“We invite West Virginians looking to take the next step in their career to connect with employers from across the state to learn more about the fantastic employment opportunities within the Mountain State,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia. “We are thrilled to be able to continue to offer these monthly job fairs. Since they began, nearly 4,600 job seekers have submitted more than 5,000 resumes and participated in more than 11,000 booth visits.”
“These Virtual job fairs are a fantastic opportunity for job seekers to apply, live chat, video chat and interview virtually with participating employers,” said James Bailey, Secretary of the WV Department of Commerce. “Over 1,000 West Virginians registered to connect with nearly 100 employers last month. We continue to encourage both West Virginia employers and job seekers to take advantage of these monthly events.”
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. Click here to register as an employer for the February 7 event.
