About the Virtual Career Fair

Hosted by the Women in Manufacturing Education Foundation, the Virtual Career Fair provides a streamlined and cost effective process for employers and job seekers to connect one-on-one from across the country in a convenient, virtual platform. Employers have the opportunity to preview candidate resumes and information, schedule chats and conduct interviews, all while highlighting their company's culture, location and workplace benefits with a customizable booth.  Job seekers are able to browse through the virtual booths, showcase their resumes and engage with recruiters from top manufacturing companies for free from the convenience of their own device.

The next Virtual Career Fair will take place August 15, 2024.
