The Chandler Chamber of Commerce is holding a virtual job fair July 15 where employers and job seekers can meet online.

The event will be held live from 9-10 a.m., according to the Chandler Chamber.

“We are in touch with our members daily and have personally experienced the business community’s need for helping employers meet and hire quality, skilled workers,” said Terri Kimble, the president and CEO of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, in a news release. “This is a great way for job seekers to connect with companies that could offer them a chance to thrive and grow.”

The virtual job fair allows companies to speak directly to job seekers and share their screen to provide any visuals on their organizational overview, positions available and the application process. Employers receive a virtual booth with a webpage available 24/7. The job fair booth includes a company overview, contact information, social media links and positions available updated in real time. The live virtual meeting will take place once a month with options for employers to hold booths from one month to a year, according to the chamber.

More information about the Chandler Chamber Meet Your Match Virtual Job Fair can be found at www.chandlerchamber.com or by calling 480-963-4571.


The job fair is in partnership with Chandler Gilbert Community College.
