At least 20 organizations such as AT&T, American Red Cross, BB&T, Blue Buffalo, AlliedBarton, and Optum will connect with experienced workers through their virtual booths. Job seekers can chat with recruiters, submit their résumés, view job openings, and tap into on-site resources. There will also be scheduled chats where attendees can pose questions and get job search tips from AARP Jobs/Work Expert Kerry Hannon, Laura Bos, and Jen Lee Reeves.
This event builds on the success of last year’s VCFs, which attracted nearly 8,000 attendees and 26 best employers pledge signers.
Can’t make it on June 9th? The Virtual Career Fair will be available on-demand for 30 days following the live event.
