Office of Workforce Development to host three Return Strong Virtual Job Fairs in November

The Missouri Office of Workforce Development (OWD) is continuing its series of Return Strong Virtual Job Fairs from now until the end of the year.

Three fairs will be held throughout November, starting with a fair for agricultural job seekers today.

The Return Strong Virtual Job Fairs are part of the state’s efforts to help Missourians skill up and get back to work following the economic downturn caused by layoffs from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re pleased with the results from October’s Virtual Job Fairs and already have dozens of employers lined up to participate in job fairs throughout November,” said Mardy Leathers, director of workforce development. “As Missouri’s economy bounces back from the pandemic, the Office of Workforce Development will continue to connect employers to as many job seekers and displaced workers as possible.” 

Job seekers statewide will be able to search job listings, meet with hiring companies, receive tips for resume writing and job interviews, and learn more about Missouri Job Center services and training opportunities.

All upcoming November fairs will take place from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the following dates:

Tuesday, Nov. 3 – Agriculture focus
Tuesday, Nov. 10
Tuesday, Nov. 17

Three more virtual job fairs will take place on Dec. 1, 8, and 15. The Dec. 1 fair will be focused on information technology jobs.

Interested job seekers can register for the Nov. 3 fair, and any of the other upcoming fairs at returnstrongmo.easyvirtualfair.com. Job seekers should create a profile and upload their resumes so employers can easily reach out after the fairs.

Although the deadline for employers to participate in this week’s fair has passed, employers can register and set up their virtual booths for other future fairs at returnstrongmo.getyourbooth.com.
