WorkForce West Virginia announces November 1 Statewide Virtual Job Fair
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – WorkForce West Virginia announced the next date in a series of Statewide Virtual Job Fairs today. Both employers and job seekers are invited to participate in the virtual event on Wednesday, November 1, from 1 – 3:30 p.m.
“We invite all West Virginia job seekers to attend the November Statewide Virtual Job Fair, which is a fantastic opportunity to speak with West Virginia employers and explore job opportunities in the Mountain State, from the comfort of your home, car or anywhere with an internet connection,” said Scott Adkins, Acting Commissioner of WorkForce West Virginia.
Registration is required for both interested employers and job seekers. Click here to register as a job seeker for the November 1 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.
“We’re thrilled with the results we’ve seen with these Statewide Virtual Job Fairs,” said James Bailey, Secretary of the WV Department of Commerce. “Since they began in 2022, nearly 6,700 job seekers have registered, submitted thousands of resumes and visited these virtual booths more than 63,000 times.”
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.
