Return Strong Virtual Job Fairs to be held June 8, 22

Employers throughout Missouri will participate in a Return Strong Virtual Job Fair hosted by the Missouri Department of Higher Education & Workforce Development (MDHEWD) on Tuesday, June 8.

Tuesday’s Virtual Job Fair will feature openings targeting job seekers looking for remote and/or part-time work. The June 22 fair will focus on openings in health care. This will mark the fourth event targeted to health care workers.                         

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 last year.

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

In total, 10 virtual job fairs were scheduled for Spring 2021, with two still upcoming. Fairs will take place on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  

Interested job seekers can register for either of the 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.

Employers interested in taking part in the health care fair can register until Friday, June 11. Employers can visit returnstrongmo.getyourbooth.com to get started.

A return to in-person job fairs and hiring events began this Spring as the COVID-19 vaccine became widely available across Missouri. Job seekers and employers can visit jobs.mo.gov to connect with their local Missouri Job Center to participate in in-person events moving forward.
