LANSING, Mich. (AP) _ Job seekers and employers will be able to connect through a State of Michigan-sponsored online career fair.

The MiVirtualCareerFair featured three-dozen employers and is expected to be the largest such event to date.

More than 140 employers and 20,750 job seekers have connected since MiVirtualCareerFair debuted two years ago.

During the fairs, job seekers can explore customized employer booths, interact with participating employers and search and apply for job opportunities.

Wednesday’s six-hour career fair included Lansing Community College, Real Estate One, TRW Automotive and U.S. Marines.

Participation for job seekers is free.

Another virtual career fair is scheduled for Nov. 12.
