A Kentucky Teleworks Virtual Job Fair will be held on Oct. 26 and 27 in Hazard.
The virtual job fair will run from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. both days at the Perry County JobSight, 412 Roy Campbell Drive, Hazard. This free event is sponsored by Kentucky Teleworks, an initiative of the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program (EKCEP), Inc., and by the LKLP Community Action Council.
Visitors to the fair will be given an introduction to and explanation of ‘telework’ — the rapidly growing practice of employees working online from home for a remote company. In some major companies more than 40 percent of employees telework.
Visitors will also get access to a list of available jobs that have been vetted and approved by Kentucky Teleworks, as well as getting help applying for those jobs. They’ll also learn how Kentucky Teleworks can keep them up to date on all the latest telework jobs and job information through email and a new website.
Persons interested in attending the Kentucky Teleworks Virtual Job Fair must call 436-3161 and speak to either Allison Brown or Jack Duff to register and schedule a pre-fair meeting to help them prepare to apply for the telework jobs.
