Making Virtual Job Fairs Virtually Accessible

In 2020, American Job Centers were challenged with finding new ways to connect job seekers and employers. One strategy used by Virginia's Disability Employment initiative to increase access was the development of Virtual Job Fair Preparation Webinars.

Since May 2020, Virginia Career Works has conducted six preparation webinars with over 50 percent of job seeker participants either invited for a formal interview or made a job offer. The strategies are now standard practice for every Virginia Career Works virtual job fair.
