A virtual jobs fair showcasing employment opportunities around Tasmania will be held on Wednesday 14 October 2020.

The Tasmania Virtual Jobs Fair, funded by the Australian Government, will bring together job seekers and local businesses, to promote job opportunities available across the state.

Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, said the Tasmania Virtual Jobs Fair provides opportunities for people in Tasmania who are looking for work to interact online with employers and employment service providers.

“As our nation continues to recover from COVID-19, the Government is committed to connecting job seekers with businesses who are looking to hire,” Minister Cash said.

“As demonstrated by last week’s federal Budget, skills development and job creation is at the heart of the Government’s recovery plan for Australia.

“The Australian Government has held Jobs Fairs in many locations around Australia with more than 39,100 people having attended these events since July 2018.”

Senator for Tasmania, the Hon Richard Colbeck, said the Tasmania Virtual Jobs Fair is essential for anyone who wants to connect with local businesses that are recruiting in the region.

“I encourage local job seekers to take advantage of the range of information that will be available online” Senator Colbeck said.

“The Tasmania Virtual Jobs Fair will provide job seekers with information including how to get job ready, improve their resume and their employment opportunities.”

The Tasmania Region Virtual Jobs Fair is a free online event from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm (AEDT) on Wednesday 14 October 2020.
