BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — On November 17th from 11am to 2pm, Invest Buffalo Niagara will be hosting a virtual job fair with more than 20 companies looking to fill hundreds of positions.

"We think this is a great opportunity for anyone searching," Greg Pokriki, Be in Buffalo & Public Relations Specialist at Invest Buffalo Niagara said.

Registration for the job fair can be done here. Unlike other virtual fairs, this one will also offer the opportunity to learn about positions while not in an interview.

"When you don't have an interview scheduled you can pop into booths to talk with different recruiters, and apply to jobs by giving out your resume," Pokriki said.

So far, here are the companies involved:

  • AAA of WNY
  • Acara
  • Allied Motion Technologies
  • Calspan
  • Catholic Health
  • Curbell Plastics
  • IIMAK
  • IQVIA
  • Independent Health
  • M&T Bank
  • Merchant’s Insurance
  • Moog
  • Phillips Lytle, LLP
  • Remedy Staffing
  • Rich Products
  • Sealing Devices
  • Spectrum
  • Strategic Financial Solutions
  • Squire
  • ValueCentric
  • West Herr Automotive

Acara, one of the companies featured, has a lot of openings they are looking to fill.

"We have more than one hundred jobs to fill by the end of the year just in the buffalo area," Chris Beckage with Acara said.
