The 2012 Charlottesville Community Spring Job Fair was a huge success! The job fair, which is the largest of its kind in Central Virginia, hosted more than 170 recruiters from 80 plus organizations. A wide variety of industries such as healthcare, retail, government, hospitality, social services, staffing, and education were represented. Most of the area’s largest employers participated in the event, including State Farm, UVA, and Martha Jefferson Hospital. Approximately 1,300 job seekers attended the fair throughout the day, with approximately 60 percent coming from the Charlottesville area.
Due to the success of last year's job fairs and the community's employment needs, we will be holding another job fair this spring. And, we are once again anticipating a large turnout from employers and job seekers alike! Employment resources for job seekers such as help with interviewing skills, resume writing, and dressing professionally will be available onsite. So, if you are an employer in search of qualified applicants or a job seeker looking for career opportunities, you are not going to want to miss this!
The 2013 Charlottesville Community Spring Job Fair is being presented by the City of Charlottesville in partnership with the County of Albemarle, the Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services, National College, the International Rescue Committee, the Adult Learning Center, the Virginia Employment Commission, the Piedmont Workforce Network, and the Virginia Workforce Network.
