NEWSCHANNEL 3 – You can land a new job on Wednesday from the comfort of your couch.
The Michigan Virtual Career Fair is much like an in-person job fair, except it all takes place on the Internet.
The online event allows job seekers from anywhere in the country to connect with Michigan employers.
Job seekers can virtually wander around from booth to booth during the career fair.
They can chat with employers and meet other job seekers in the site’s "Networking Lounge."
People will be able to search and apply for jobs online and also submit video resumes.
Nine companies will be hiring at the Michigan Virtual Career Fair, including Computech Corporation and Armstrong International.
The employers hope to fill a wide range of positions, from engineers to welders to web designers.
The online event runs from 10am to 4pm on Wednesday.
It does not cost anything to participate.
All job openings posted on Wednesday will be accessible to participants for one month.
