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.”

Raleigh, NC, July 10, 2019 – Capital Area Workforce Development is hosting the WRAL Capital Area Career Expo on Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 10 am to 2 pm at the McKimmon Center. Approximately 75 employers have already signed on and combined have over 5000 vacancies.
“Although the most recent jobs data still shows relatively low employment, that’s still 25, 000 people without jobs in our area alone. There’s great opportunity in industries like construction and healthcare because they are finding it harder to fill vacancies so it’s not surprising that those are well-represented again this year,” said Pat Sturdivant, Executive Director of Capital Area Workforce Development Board.
Other industries represented include criminal justice, hospitality, information technology, local and state government, and non-profits.
“It’s our 9th year and we’re thrilled that several new businesses with all kinds of positions will be recruiting with us. The NCWorks Career Center in Raleigh is offering a workshop to prepare job seekers for the true purpose of job fairs which is to network and help recruiters put a face to the resume. Career changers can also discuss their skills and learn what they may need to transition,” said Kimberly Wheeler, CAWD Director of Business Engagement.
Admission is free for job seekers.
