Colorado Department of Transportation to Hold Online Hiring Event
Virtual Job Fair offers statewide job opportunities with CDOT
The Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Department of Labor and Employment are teaming up to host a “virtual” job fair during the month of August. This month-long, around-the-clock event will be used to fill CDOT job openings across Colorado and will utilize the Department of Labor and Employment’s virtual job fair platform.
Running from August 1 through August 31, job seekers need to simply log in or register at www.connectingcolorado.com to gain entry. Once inside the virtual event, they can peruse a wide variety of career opportunities being offered, visit regional chat rooms to get questions answered and learn about the Department of Transportation. Participants will also be able to attend workshops to help them write a strong résumé and build their job seeking and interviewing skills.
“We’re excited to be able to provide a great employer like CDOT with this virtual job fair,” says Department of Labor and Employment Executive Director Ellen Golombek. “They offer vital and interesting work, excellent benefits, competitive salaries and career growth opportunities.”
And because the job opportunities cover a wide geographic region, an online or “virtual” hiring event is the best way to go, she says. “Job seekers can visit this virtual fair from any location with a web connection and at any time.”
The Department of Labor and Employment and its network of Workforce Centers offer a range of services to job seekers and Colorado employers, all at no charge. For job seekers interested in learning more about this virtual job fair or for employers interested in having a similar event staged to meet their staffing needs, contact your nearest Workforce Center.
