TOPEKA – Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland invites jobseekers and employers to participate in this month’s Statewide Virtual Job Fair, hosted by KANSASWORKS, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 23.
“In 2023 alone, more than 1,500 jobseekers registered to speak with the 200-plus employers participating in our KANSASWORKS Statewide Virtual Job Fairs,” Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland said. “Companies are expanding or relocating to our state every day, which is how we have created and retained more than 61,000 jobs since 2019. Anyone seeking a good-paying job with great benefits should participate, as your success is vital to the state’s success.”
The Virtual Statewide Job Fair portal features helpful information such as a jobseeker training video, a list of participating employers, and channels for attendees to register and log in. Jobseekers are encouraged to dress professionally, as employers may request to engage in a video interview.
Candidates are able to participate through any digital device, but it is highly recommended to use a computer to be most effective during the job fairs. If a jobseeker does not have access to a personal computer, they are available at KANSASWORKS offices throughout the state as well as at local libraries. Any individual with a disability may request accommodations by contacting their nearest workforce center at (877) 509-6757 prior to the event.
Registration is required to participate in virtual job fairs, regardless of previous participation. To register for the August 23 fair, click here.
