Registration now open for SC Works Greater Upstate’s professional virtual job fair on July 16
Administrative, professional, management and IT jobs will be the focus of SC Works Greater Upstate’s virtual job fair on Thursday, July 16, from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
The virtual regional event will give job seekers the opportunity to chat with company hiring managers in real time and participate in virtual interviews.
“A large number of candidates who participated in our May 7 virtual job fair had administrative or professional experience,” said Johnnie-Lynn Crosby, Regional Business Solutions Director for SC Works Greater Upstate. “We thought it would be a good idea to host that type of event in order to connect that talent with open jobs.”
The event’s 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. timeframe will allow individuals who are currently working but interested in pursuing other jobs or careers the opportunity to participate, Crosby said.
To date, the following Upstate companies have signed on to participate:
- ARC LABS
- Charter Spectrum

For jobs seekers, Crosby recommends that candidates prepare for the virtual job fair as they would for an in-person event.
“You want to dress for success and be ready for an interview because you may end up having a virtual interview on the day of the event,” she said. “Plus, getting dressed up often helps you feel professional and ready for your next job. It makes a huge difference.”
The SC Works Greater Upstate Professional Virtual Job Fair is sponsored by Sitel, WSPA News Channel 7, Livin’ Upstate. There is no charge for companies or job seekers to participate. To register, click here.
