"By offering the job fair now, individuals interested will have the time to apply and complete any testing requirements so that they will be listed on the state register of available and approved candidates by summer," Holley-Brown said in an email.
About 400 people attended last year's fair, and Holley-Brown expected plenty to attend next week as well. She wasn't immediately sure how many landed jobs last year, or how many positions were currently open.
Other participating agencies include the Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Technology, State Tax Department, State Police and the Library Commission.
Employers are looking in particular for accountants, child support workers, data entry operators, engineers, health care workers, social workers and IT specialists, Holley-Brown said.
The fair is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Culture Center. Attendees should bring resumes. More information is available at www.personnel.wv.gov.
