Virtual Career Fair Slated for Gen Z Job Seekers

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A Gen Z Virtual Career Fair is planned for May 3, just in time for young Ohioans to find summer jobs, internships, part-time and full-time employment.

Matt Damschroder, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services director, encourages Ohioans ages 16 to 28 to begin registering for the event HERE so employers can view resumes in advance and possibly schedule a time to chat the day of the event.

“I encourage all young people in Ohio who are looking for work to take advantage of this opportunity,” Damschroder said. “More than 48 employers from across the state have already signed up to participate. All of them have open positions that they are looking to fill now, for full-time, part-time, summer jobs and internships.”

The career fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during In-Demand Jobs Week, a statewide celebration of jobs, industries and skills that are in-demand in Ohio.

Employers wishing to register for the career fair can connect with workforce development team members Kristen Womeldorff for businesses in Mahoning and Columbiana Counties and Anthony Stellato for Trumbull County.

OhioMeansJobs offers free employment services, including job openings, skill and career interest assessments, assistance creating or improving resumes, interview practice and career fairs. Young job seekers may be eligible for the Comprehensive Case Management Employment Program, which can provide career coaching, job placement, mentoring and assistance with tuition, transportation and other financial needs.
