What to Expect During a Virtual Job Fair
During the Virtual Job Fair, participants will be able to engage with employers via chat forums and one-on-one messaging. In addition to visiting Employer Booths, job seekers can also take advantage of Resource Booths to get answers to questions and concerns about job accommodations, legal issues that present barriers to work, and Social Security work incentives. Those requiring screen reader technology will find that the platform is optimized for their needs.
