North Dakota offers job, internship webfair

BISMARCK–Job seekers can explore nearly 120 internships and job opportunities with more than 20 North Dakota companies through the state’s latest online job fair. 

WebFair ND is underway now through Oct. 31. 

Coordinated by the North Dakota Department of Commerce, the online career fair is popular with businesses, project coordinator Adele Sigl said in a news release. 

“It is a low-cost avenue for recruitment that doesn’t involve the travel and expense of traditional career fairs,” Sigl said.

Services provided to businesses that participate include: 

 *   A virtual “booth” that showcases their current openings and provides information about who they are and what they do.

 *   Marketing of WebFair ND to job seekers (both in- and out-of-state) and North Dakota college students.

 *   Post-event tracking report of website and booth-specific visits.

Commerce began coordinating these events in 2008. This is the fifth WebFair ND that Commerce has sponsored.
