Job seekers across North Dakota — and those looking to relocate to the Peace Garden State — will have the opportunity to learn about available work and more at a virtual, multi-industry job fair that is being planned for mid-May.

Sponsored by Job Service North Dakota, the Statewide Virtual Multi-Industry Job Fair will take place from 11 a.m.-2p.m Thursday, May 19. This is the first time Job Service North Dakota has held a statewide job fair.

According to the latest Online Job Openings Report published May 4, and shared by Job Service, there were 19,574 online job postings statewide. Health care and technical reported the largest number of job openings (3,139), followed by transportation and material moving (1,556) and office and administrative support (1,367). Eighteen occupational groups reported an over-the-year increase in job openings.

In short, according to Job Service North Dakota, it's a great time to be looking for a job.

“One of the many advantages North Dakota has to offer is our strong sense of community,” Job Service North Dakota Executive Director Pat Bertagnolli said in a statement announcing the job fair. “That goes a long way when people are thinking of making a big life change like a new career or a move.”


Partners from North Dakota departments of Commerce, Tourism and Parks & Recreation will be online to share information and access about the state. Job Service says this is a great opportunity for North Dakotans to share with family and friends with ties to the area.

The event, which gives job seekers the opportunity to explore career opportunities, meet employers, learn about North Dakota and even interview, is free and open to anyone with internet access.
