The sessions, all of which will be begin at 12 p.m. EST, will allow people to access a special website through their home computer to learn about N.E.W. Corp. and to apply for jobs with the company.


To register and obtain the web address for the virtual job fairs, people should contact Theresa Noble with Kentucky Teleworks via email at tnoble@ekcep.org, and provide full name, city and state of residence, and phone number.
