9th Annual Conroe Job Fair Set for March 30 Utilizing Virtual Platform
CONROE, TX – The 9th Annual Conroe Job Fair will be held virtually on Tuesday, March 30 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The event is hosted collaboratively by the Conroe Economic Development Council (CEDC), Conroe/Lake Conroe Chamber, Lone Star College, and Workforce Solutions.
Careers in engineering, education, welding, machining, healthcare, accounting, sales, and more are expected to be filled by local companies. Previous Conroe Job Fairs have welcomed more than 600 job seekers and more than 60 hiring companies.
Job seekers will utilize Workforce Solutions’ virtual platform to search and apply for open positions. When attendees click on a company’s name, the interactive platform will make it appear as if the applicant is walking into the lobby of the company’s building. Once inside the company’s virtual lobby, job seekers will be able to access information about the company, browse job openings, and send messages to chat with hiring managers. While company representatives will be online until 5:00 p.m., the event platform will be open until midnight to accept applications.
