NOVA Job Opportunities
“COVID-19 has created an environment where a virtual event is essential, because we can’t be face-to-face now and because the pandemic has had such an impact on the economy. This is how we do this safely and at scale,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of the FCEDA. “We have thousands of job openings in Northern Virginia – about half of them tech jobs. We as economic development professionals need to be facilitators for companies that need to acquire talent.”
Career fairs are part of the FCEDA talent initiative funded last year by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. The initiative also includes a website, www.workinnorthernvirginia.com, that highlights Fairfax County and Northern Virginia as a great place to find a job, live and play.
