MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia University students interested in jobs while in school this fall can attend a pre-semester hiring event in Morgantown on Monday.
The event, organized by the university's Office of Student Employment, will be held in the Mountainlair Ballrooms from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Students will have the opportunity to interview face-to-face or by Skype with about 23 on-campus and four off-campus employers, according to a WVU news release. By using Skype, a videoconferencing technology, the job fair is opened up to more than just students who will be in Morgantown next week.
"This way every student who wants a job this fall has the opportunity to participate," Susan Lantz, assistant director of student employment at WVU, said in the release.
Students are recommended to bring a copy of their fall schedule, two forms of identification and a voided check. Accepted forms of identification include a driver's license, a voter's registration card, U.S. military card, a birth certificate, a U.S. passport or a school ID with a photograph on it.
More than 240 students attended last year's event, and more than 200 students gained employment. One in 10 students, from as far away as Texas and Oklahoma, used Skype to interview for jobs last year.
Anyone with additional questions can call the Office of Student Employment at 304-293-9270.
