AgCareers is now providing candidates the opportunity to attend a career fair from anywhere with Virtual Career Fairs.

The Virtual Career Fairs allow anyone pursuing a career in the agricultural industry to attend a career fair with just a computer and internet access.

The virtual fairs are free for job seekers, and allow them to network and communicate with agricultural employers in real time. Candidates may can talk with representatives various employers, ask questions, and express interest in securing an agricultural career.

The Resume Database Virtual Career Fair, created exclusively for job seekers who have uploaded their resume into the Database, will take place on September 27, 2016. The deadline for uploading your resume to receive an invitation to the event is September 12th, and interested job seekers may do so here.

Another upcoming event is the Two-Year & Technical Colleges Virtual Career Fair on October 6, 2016, created exclusively for job seekers with an associate’s/technical degree or certificate. Candidates may connect with employers looking for ready-now, skilled talent from a wide variety of careers and sectors within agriculture. For additional information and to register, visit here.

“Both passive and active job seekers can use virtual career fairs to their advantage to connect with employers,” said Ashley Collins, Education and Marketing Manager, “The number one piece of feedback we receive from job seekers is that they feel like their applications go into a black hole when they hit submit. Taking advantage of events like these two fairs offered by will allow job seekers to have a conversation with the employer and make a connection through the application process,” said Collins. “We’re also very excited to bring this avenue to our community of skill and trade job seekers. Career fairs for that community can be limited while career opportunities are plentiful,” added Collins.
