Statewide Virtual Job Fair September 1
Nearly 100 Utah employers are ready to hire
SALT LAKE CITY (August 29, 2022) – September is Workforce Development Month, and to celebrate, the Utah Department of Workforce Services is hosting a virtual job fair Thursday, September 1. Nearly 100 Utah employers will participate in the free online event. Employers are hiring for thousands of open positions statewide.
“In this tight labor market employers are offering competitive wages and benefits to attract new employees,'' said Liz Carver, Workforce Development Division director. “This month’s job fair is a great opportunity for people to explore different opportunities or even change career paths.”& #160;
Full-time and part-time job openings are available in many industries including health care, construction, e-commerce, banking, government, retail, aerospace and more. Find a complete list of participating employers at jobs.utah.gov.
Job seekers can participate in the fair from their own computer or smartphone. After logging in, participants will be able to see a digital floor plan with rows of booths, each representing an employer. After clicking on an employer booth, the job seeker can see the company profile, job openings and social media. They can also start a live chat with a hiring representative and share their resume. Employers can schedule interviews, start one-on-one video chats or even make job offers on the spot.
The statewide virtual job fair is Thursday, September 1, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. To participate, job seekers should pre-register at jobs.utah.gov and create an account or sign in to 'my Job Search.' On the day of the event, log back in to ‘my Job Search’ to join. The department is also offering an online workshop the day before to help job seekers get the most out of the virtual job fair.
National Workforce Development Month is recognized each September. It highlights the services and resources available for job seekers and employers that are necessary to sustain economic security in Utah. In addition to the virtual job fair, job seekers can search more than 75,000 openings at jobs.utah.gov or visit their local employment center.
