Looking for work in Kansas? This two-day job fair might have what you want

·1 min read

Kansans looking for job opportunities can attend the KANSASWORKS Statewide Virtual Job Fair on Wednesday Dec. 8 and Thursday Dec. 9. The state designed the event to give job seekers the chance to meet virtually with businesses that are looking for workers.

Candidates can upload their resumes, live chat and conduct interviews through any digital device, such as a computer or tablet. The applicant portal features a job seeker training video, a list of participating employers and channels for attendees to register and log in.

You must register for the job fair, even if you’ve participated before. You can do so using this link.

KANSASWORKS is encouraging attendees to dress professionally, as employers may want a video interview during the fair.

“KANSASWORKS’ continued efforts to connect qualified job seekers with meaningful employment are making a difference across our state,” David Toland, the Lieutenant Governor and Commerce Secretary, said in a statement. “We are committed to continuing virtual job fairs and other thoughtful strategies to strengthen our workforce and create the best possible job opportunities statewide.”

The state of Kansas has conducted 11 virtual job fairs since 2020. Hundreds of employers and registered job seekers have participated in each online job fair.
