NORTHEASTERN MINNESOTA — Despite the layoffs and furloughs that the pandemic has caused, many companies throughout northeastern Minnesota are looking for candidates to fill open positions. Hiring during this time can be even more challenging and the Northeast Minnesota Office of Job Training (NEMOJT) is offering a way for employers and job seekers to connect.
A virtual job and career fair will be held October 27 – 29 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. each day. Employers will be able to connect with job seekers by phone, tablet, or computer and speak directly with recruiters. Job seekers can apply to open positions and research companies all in one location.
