Community Job Fair to be Held in Richmond

May 8, 2014

Employers in Virginia are hiring, and Averett University's Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS) Program is bringing them to a free community Job Fair at The West End Assembly of God on May 29 from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

The community is invited to meet with a broad range of employers who are actively hiring, to attend free workshops, and to enjoy a variety of food vendors and refreshments. With more than 75 employers participating, the event offers a great opportunity for adults seeking employment and career advancement.

Averett is hosting employers from a broad range of industries, from large companies such as VCU Health System, Lowe's, Nationwide Insurance, Teleperformance, and World Financial Group, to state and city agencies, local banks and real estate companies. Each employer attending has five or more job openings. The job fair will also feature free workshops throughout the day including résumé writing & interviewing skills, maximizing social media for job searches and Virginia Employment Commission Benefits.

For additional details, including a list of employers attending the event, workshop schedules, and address, please contact the GPS Program at 855-490-7736 or email Melissa Anderson, director of enrollment, at

The GPS Program would like to thank the following community sponsors for their assistance in offering a quality job fair to the citizens of Central Virginia: West End Assembly of God, Aramark, Kroger, Subway, The Fresh Market, Chick-fil-A, Prop Shop Richmond, WRIC TV8, 103.7 Play and Ukrop's Homestyle Foods.
