Virtual : Essential Job & Volunteer Job Fair Virginia


April 13, 2020

Virtual : Essential Job & Volunteer Job Fair Virginia

Labor Connect is hosting a series of job and volunteer fairs with the goal of filling as many positions as possible for industries that have been impacted by Covid-19.  Even though this pandemic has caused many industries to shed jobs, it’s caused a massive labor shortage in others. Many non-profits that provide essential services in the community have been impacted as well.  We feel that this interruption could impact the health and livelihood of the community and that’s why we’re hosting thee events.

These fairs are offered at a discounted rate for companies in specific industries and are free of charge for non-profits that provide essential services.  Our normal rate for participating companies is $399, but for companies in the industries listed below, the rate is only $249.  The list of industries are:
Hospitals/Healthcare
In home healthcare
Emergency Responders
Essential goods manufacturing
Warehousing
Food prep/food delivery
Grocery stores
As different needs arise, we will be adding more industries to this list.   These fairs are completely online and hosted on LaborConnect.net.  We would normally target a town or city for a job fair but since time is of the essence, we will be targeting counties to cover a wider area.

Labor Connect services can act as a rapid response to organizations that need to quickly hire people.  We can have a hiring event setup within 1 business day.  We want to do our part in helping those affected by this disease and make sure people’s lives can stay as normal as possible.  If you have any questions, please let us know.
