Senator Manchin and WVU Parkersburg to host the MOV Career Fair 2019 on Sept. 27

The third 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. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event takes place on the WVU Parkersburg campus and is free and open to the public.

“The MOV Career Fair is a great way for West Virginians and companies to meet so that our citizens can find careers and our businesses can hire capable, prepared workers,” said Senator Manchin. “As our state gains job opportunities, these career fairs are essential to ensuring that West Virginians are hired to fill those roles. I look forward to seeing the positive results of this career fair for our state and our people.”

Job seekers will have the opportunity to meet with more than 100 businesses and organizations actively seeking employees at the career fair. 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 is so honored to work with Senator Manchin and his team,” said WVU Parkersburg President Dr. Chris Gilmer. “He has proven his commitment to our University and to leading the charge in workforce development in the Mid-Ohio Valley. We are glad to work with him and all of the communities we serve to link employers to prospective employees. We do this for our students and graduates who are highly trained and prepared to enter the job market, and for others in the area who need to find employment to advance their family and to live fully into their potential. We see ourselves as a bridge, and it’s a role we are pleased to fill.”
