Governor Kelly Announces First Virtual Job Fair of 2023

TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly invites jobseekers to participate in the first Virtual Job Fair of 2023, hosted by KANSASWORKS. This virtual fair will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, January 25, and will highlight employment opportunities within many of the state’s 98 government agencies. There are close to 900 job openings in state government across Kansas. 

“Filling our state agencies with talented and skilled employees is increasingly important,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “We need to ensure our state agencies have the necessary workforce to advance the programs and services we offer to Kansans.” 

Registration is required in order to participate in the event, regardless of previous participation. The Virtual Job Fair portal features a Job Seeker Training video, a list of participating employers, and channels for attendees to register and log in. Jobseekers are encouraged to dress professionally, as employers might request to engage in a video interview that day. 

“Our agencies are primed and ready to hire top talent to fill open jobs across the state,” Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland said. “Commerce alone has 30 job opportunities available and we are seeking motivated individuals ready to join our winning team.” 

KANSASWORKS links businesses, jobseekers, educational institutions and training providers to ensure the state’s workforce is equipped to meet industry needs. Workforce development teams are dedicated to providing assistance with the job search process, creating effective resumes, job training, job placement and more. These centers are ready and available to assist anyone looking for employment with the necessary tools to finding good paying occupations. 

Candidates can participate via any digital device. Any individual with a disability may request accommodations by contacting their nearest workforce center at (877) 509-6757 prior to the event.
