February 15, 2022
TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly encourages Kansans to participate in this week’s KANSASWORKS Statewide Virtual Job Fair. The Virtual Job Fair will take place from 8 a.m. Wednesday, February 16, to 5 p.m. Thursday, February 17.
“This is an excellent opportunity for Kansans to promote their talents and experience to businesses and other employers," Governor Laura Kelly said. “We are dedicated to strengthening our workforce statewide, and these virtual events have proven to be a key tool in connecting Kansans to good jobs and meeting employers’ needs.”
This week’s KANSASWORKS Job Fair will be the 12th virtual event since 2020. The event will allow job seekers and businesses to live chat, meet virtually and conduct interviews for prospective careers. Candidates may upload their resumes to their Virtual Job Fair account and can access the job fair through a computer or mobile device.
“When it comes to getting people and businesses to choose Kansas, we have to have the best possible workforce and opportunities for job seekers,” Lieutenant Governor and Commerce Secretary David Toland said. “KANSASWORKS’ Virtual Job Fair system has been efficient and effective in helping Kansas residents and employers alike achieve economic success.”
The Virtual Job Fair portal features a Job Seeker Training video, a list of participating employers, and channels for attendees to register and login. Those wishing to participate must register, regardless of previous attendance. Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally, as employers may request to engage in a video interview during the virtual job fair.
Any individual with a disability may request accommodations by contacting their closest workforce center at (877) 509-6757 prior to the event.
