Kansas jobs open with new career fair

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – A statewide job fair is coming up later this month for Kansans interested in finding a new career.

Patrick Lowry, a state of Kansas spokesman, said a statewide virtual job fair will be hosted by KANSASWORKS from 8 am to 5 pm on Wednesday, April 19.

“Our goal is to attract and retain top talent across the country in a wide variety of sectors to keep our entire economy moving forward,” Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland said. “Our KANSASWORKS team is working hard to place Kansans in good-paying jobs and help them establish careers.

The virtual job fair portal will also feature helpful information such as a jobseeker training video, a list of participating employers and channels for attendees to register and log in, according to Lowry. Those participating in the fair are encouraged to dress professionally as some employers may seek a video interview.

You can participate fairly using any digital device, according to Lowry. Any individual with a disability can request accommodations by reaching out to their nearest workforce center at 877-509-6757 before the fair begins.

Registration is required to participate in the fair, regardless of previous participation, according to Lowry. You can register now by clicking here.
