November job fairs focuses on veterans
MONTPELIER — In continuation of its efforts to connect jobseekers with career opportunities and employers with talent, the Vermont Department of Labor is hosting in-person and virtual job fairs this November.
A couple Veterans & Community Job Fairs have already taken place, but the state still plans to host job fairs in St. Albans and Colchester in partnership with local veterans’ organizations. All jobseekers are encouraged to attend, but veterans and service members will be provided early access in the first hour of the events to explore career opportunities. The Department of Labor prioritizes veterans in its delivery of jobseeker and career services.
COVID-19 booster and flu vaccinations will also be made available for interested individuals by the Vermont Department of Health at the event in St. Albans.
For those jobseekers interested in virtual hiring event opportunities, the state will offer three days of virtual job fairs from Nov. 15 to 17. The first-ever New England Regional Job Fair will be held Nov. 15-16 in conjunction with other New England states, providing employers and jobseekers from across the region the opportunity to connect with one another.
The Department of Labor’s monthly #Hiring2DayVT Virtual Job Fair will then be held on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 11 a.m. To take part just log on at labor.vermont.gov/event/virtual-job-fairs.
All events above are free for all interested in attending.
