Virtual Job Fairs
Alaska Virtual Job Fair (VJF) is an innovation offering an opportunity for employers and job seekers to connect while allowing for the safety of all as we deal with COVID-19. As an online event, Employers and Job Seekers meet in a virtual environment and use various tools such as: chat rooms, webcasts, training/workshop videos, webinars and employer online hiring sites. Utilizing a VJF eliminates geographical barriers and enables more accessibility to the event for the job seekers and employers (citizens can connect at any location with internet, without transportation and distance issues). Getting a Virtual Job Fair going is easy. Alaska Job Center Staff and/ or Employers are able to request a Virtual Job Fair using the Form on this page.
Requesting a Virtual Job Fair
As an Employer, you can request a Virtual Job Fair in one of two ways. At any time you can connect with your nearest Alaska Job Center and begin the process of planning and getting your VJF going. Alternatively, you may use the Form and Templates below to request a VJF directly with the VJF Coordinator. In order to complete your request, please fill out the VJF Request Form below. The request form is short and requires the basic information such as company details and the dates for your VJF. In addition, you will need to complete the two templates also found on this page. The first is a listing of the open positions you are looking to fill. The second template asks for the information regarding your virtual engagement with job seekers – your virtual chat availability.
You only need to submit the VJF Request Form in order to get the process started. The VJF Coordinator or Job Center Staff can work with you to provide the information necessary to “go live” with your Fair. When the Fair starts there will be a dedicated Website where Job Seekers will come to view information about your company, available jobs, and times which the company will be available to chat with potential candidates.
