Regional Job Fair Goes Virtual Amid COVID-19 Rules and High Unemployment

Raleigh, NC, Sept. 28, 2020 – Capital Area Workforce Development (CAWD), Durham Workforce Development and Kerr-Tar Workforce Development Board are hosting the Triangle Career Expo virtually on Thursday, October 8, 2020 from 9 am to 2 pm. The goal is to connect over 76,000 unemployed citizens throughout the region with local employers who have immediate and valuable career opportunities. Admission is free.

“COVID has impacted jobseekers of all skillsets and experience levels. The in-person job fairs we’ve done in the past always had strong turnout and this event offers the same benefits but in a virtual setting,” said Pat Sturdivant, Executive Director at CAWD. “It’s convenient and user-friendly for job seekers and businesses. It also allows for face-to-face interaction which is the main benefit of attending any job fair.”

Kimberly Wheeler, CAWD Director of Business Engagement said “This event showcases the diversity and strength of the region’s industries. Employers across healthcare, technology, professional services, construction and more are participating and have immediate hiring needs. We especially want to reach those whose jobs were affected by COVID. There are opportunities for all experience levels and skill sets.”
