hire loudoun fall 2019

Dozens of Loudoun County’s top employers are expected to have career opportunities available at the “Hire Loudoun” career fair on Saturday, September 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Northern Virginia Community College’s Loudoun Campus.

Now in its fourth installment, this is the first time that “Hire Loudoun” will be held on a weekend, which is expected to boost attendance. Job seekers signups have already surpassed 200 with more than three weeks remaining before the event.

“Loudoun is home to one of the most educated workforces in the country. Right now, approximately half of that workforce leaves the county for employment every morning, facing emotionally and financially-draining commutes,” said Loudoun Economic Development’s Executive Director Buddy Rizer. “The ‘Hire Loudoun’ career fair is designed to bridge the gap between an ideal candidate and a dream job close to home.”

Loudoun Economic Development is hosting the “Hire Loudoun” career fair in partnership with the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce, Northern Virginia Community College, Loudoun Workforce Resource Center and Virginia Career Works.

If your Loudoun business would enjoy the opportunity to participate as an employer, please register with the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce online no later than September 9, 2019.

Loudoun companies already committed to participating in “Hire Loudoun” include:

Job seekers are encouraged to pre-register through our confidential online portal, or they may register on the day of the event.

Workers at all career stages are welcome, with open roles for new college graduates, mid-career professionals, individuals looking to transition to another career, parents returning to the workforce, veterans and military spouses.

“Living and working in Loudoun will help you enjoy the benefits of living in the region’s happiest, healthiest and safest county,” Rizer added. “In an employee-friendly job market, having a high-paying job and shorter commute are #LoudounPossible.”

Job seekers are also encouraged to participate in “Job Prep Express,” a free training program for networking and skill enrichment, designed to support career advancement in the fields of education, healthcare, technology and data center operations.

Job Prep Express will be held September 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Northern Virginia Community College’s Loudoun Campus HEC Center. Please register by September 5, 2019.
