The Kentucky Career Center - Cumberlands will host its first-ever Virtual Job Fair on August 20, 2020, from 10 am - 2 pm Eastern time. There is no fee or obligation, just an opportunity to meet — virtually — with regional businesses in need of employees. Job seekers can visit a special page on our website with virtual “booths” set up to promote businesses with hiring needs.
While a virtual job fair will be a different experience from a traditional fair, we will strive for the same momentum and excitement generated by a single day, concentrated employment gathering. We want to get job seekers engaging with employers, just like at a traditional job fair. Businesses will be displayed on a single gallery — a long scroll page (think Pinterest or Facebook). All 'booths' will be similar in size and visual design. It is up to a visitor to engage with an employer (just like a traditional fair), but through a phone call, website visit, email, or possibly a Zoom meeting.
How will it work?
On the day and time of the fair, the registration form on the webpage page will be turned on. Job seekers will need to sign in to access the gallery, where, like at a traditional fair, visitors can peruse the various booths at their leisure. It will be the responsibility of the employers to be available to receive calls (if a phone number is provided). At the end of the job fair, this page will be turned off.
This is a first for us, and details are still being worked out, but we feel confident this virtual job fair will be a much-needed tool for both employers and potential employees during these unprecedented times.
