ATHENS, WV (WOAY ) – This month Concord University is hosting a career fair and teacher recruitment event.
The events will be entirely virtual this year. Phil Lewis, Concord’s Director of Career Services, says it will give students a chance to get a look at how job searching has changed during the pandemic, as many businesses use remote interviews.
Destiny Clemins, a social work student at Concord says she’s thankful for the opportunity.
“It gives an opportunity to network,” Clemins said. “I think students really need that because getting a job is hard enough. Getting to network with these companies I think is really important and it’s a good thing.”
Some organizations featured at the events include several state agencies, local school systems as well as local businesses.
