Seacoast United Sports Club announced it will team up with New Hampshire Employment Security to host its first-ever virtual career fair on January 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., according to a press release.

Per the release, the event will lean on Seacoast United's network of families, businesses and community partners in an effort to "combat the number of challenges the region is currently dealing with, whether it be due to the pandemic, high unemployment or an aging population," the release said.

Based in Hampton, Seacoast United is a youth sports organization with teams in soccer, field hockey and lacrosse.

The virtual event is free to attend, the release said, and will be open to both employees and prospective employers. The event is expected to cater to both prospective graduates and professionals and will highlight career opportunities that exist in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.

“New Hampshire is a great state to work and live in, now is the opportunity if you have been looking for a new career or want to jump-start your career,” Job and Resource Fair Coordinator Kate LaPierre said in the release. “There will be companies ranging from small local businesses to large corporations so there will be something for everyone.”

Added Sales and Marketing Director James Peterson: “We planned on hosting a career fair last April with NHES but unfortunately, we had to cancel the event due to the pandemic. When Kate and her team approached us about doing a virtual version, we jumped at the chance.” Peterson went on to say, “Everyone has been effected by what has taken place over the past year and we are using our platform to promote some good. I feel confident that this will lead to us hosting a number of virtual events this year.”

Registration for the event is now live, according to the release. Those interested in participating, either as an employer or an employee, can register by following this link or emailing James Peterson at jpeterson@seacoastunited.com.
