Those seeking a job this summer are in luck. The Greater Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce will host a job fair this June to help both employers and future employees find that perfect match.
According to Ashley Vickers, executive director of the Greater Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce, the job fair will take place on Tuesday, June 15, from 4-6:30 p.m. at the West Virginia building located on the State Fairgrounds.
Employers interested in setting up a booth at the job fair may contact Vickers at 304-645-2818, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by registering online at greenbrierwvchamber.org.
Vickers said that the chamber of commerce will reach out to prospective employers and employees as far as Beckley and Charleston to make this job fair a success.
“We expect a nice turn-out,” Vickers said.
Regarding the decision to host a job fair, Vickers explained that many chamber members had asked for help to find employees since online sites didn’t seem to be working at getting people in for an interview.
“The chamber wants to help find good, reliable employees for our members, and those who need help,” Vickers said.
There is a booth fee for non-members during the job fair, but chamber members may set up a booth for free, Vickers added.
For those seeking employment, Vickers said to bring a resume and dress professionally.
Attendees are asked to socially distance and follow pandemic guidelines for indoor events.
