Senator Manchin and WVU Parkersburg to host the MOV Career Fair 2018 on Sept. 28

The second annual Mid-Ohio Valley (MOV) Career Fair presented by U.S. Senator Joe Manchin and West Virginia University at Parkersburg will be held Friday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event takes place on the WVU Parkersburg main campus and is free and open to the public.

“It is always an honor to be part of one of these job fairs that will provide hundreds of hard-working West Virginians the opportunity to connect with employers all across the region,” said Senator Manchin. “It is my hope that job seekers will link up with employers or resources that will help them find a new job. More than 100 businesses are expected to be on site and I thank Dr. Gilmer and WVU Parkersburg for the opportunity to be part of this.”

All businesses and organizations registered to attend the career fair are actively seeking employees. The college will also provide a free photo opportunity for those seeking professional portraits. Job seekers should dress professionally, bring plenty of resumes and research registered employers.

WVU Parkersburg will host Christian Martine, Facebook product solutions manager and West Virginia native, for an informative presentation, “Working for Facebook with Christian Martine,” at 1:00 p.m. in the theater. He will discuss how Facebook makes a difference in the world and provide a brief overview about how he became employed with the social media giant.

“We are deeply honored to work with Senator Manchin and his team to showcase Mid-Ohio Valley employers to our students and our students to potential employers,” said Dr. Chris Gilmer, president, WVU Parkersburg. “With more than 100 of the most exciting businesses in the area participating, the event is part of the university’s commitment to fill the workforce needs of the communities we serve.”
