CONCORD - The governor on Wednesday announced 10 upcoming virtual job fairs spanning every corner of the state for unemployed Granite Staters look prior to the resumption of work search requirements on May 23.
"Our economy has come roaring back and with New Hampshire leading the nation in vaccinations, it's an appropriate time to resume the requirement to look for work next month," said Gov. Chris Sununu. "This return to our traditional, more normalized system is a sign that we are getting back to normal, and I would like to thank the team at Employment Security for their efforts in opening up access to job seekers and employers."
At last week's press conference, Sununu announced that on May 23 those collecting unemployment will need to resume searching for work while collecting benefits. If an individual is unable to find work, it does mean not they will lose their unemployment benefits.
Employers looking to register their company and job seekers looking for work can register for one of the job fairs by going to virtualjobfairs.nh.gov.
The Seacoast's version will be held on May 19 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Signups can come from job seekers or employers looking for help.
