The West Piedmont Workforce Development Board will host a virtual job fair for residents of the cities of Danville and Martinsville and the counties of Pittsylvania, Henry, and Patrick on December 9.
“We are very excited to host our first region wide virtual job fair,” said Tyler Freeland, CEO of the West Piedmont Workforce Development Board. “As part of our strategy to adapt in 2020, we purchased Premier Virtual, an online virtual career fair platform. This technology allows us to connect employers to job seekers in the safest way possible during the pandemic. This job fair will be the first of many regularly scheduled events. We look forward to getting people back to work and meeting the needs of area businesses.”
The virtual job fair, “Click for Careers,” is free to participating employers and job seekers.
The virtual format will allow job seekers to apply, chat and interview with employers without having to leave their home.
The employer list currently includes more than 20 employers from across the region that are ready to hire participating candidates.
Recruiters will be live on the site on December 9 from 1 to 6 p.m.
