Several local companies are among the 15 tech employers listed for an upcoming virtual job hosted by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority.
The fair is targeted to mid-career tech professionals, especially ones with security clearances, and the companies represented will have a total of 3,000 open jobs in the Northern Virginia region, according to FCEDA.
“While the fair is primarily for those in tech fields including data science, software engineering, IT, cybersecurity, defense and aerospace, some companies are featuring non-tech positions such as marketing, sales, finance, human resources and legal,” according to FCEDA.
Companies signed up for the fair include:
- Microsoft, Reston

- ManTech International, Herndon
- MicroHealth, Tysons
- NTT Data Federal, Tysons
- Serco Inc., Herndon

Previously, FCEDA hosted a virtual career fair for recent college graduates.
“Every job represents a household, so when we connect people — whether newly minted graduates or those midway through a career — to thousands of open jobs, we are really improving lives, saving households and communities,” Victor Hoskins, FCEDA’s president and CEO, said in a press release.
People will be able to browse companies in a virtual lobby before entering “virtual booths” to view open positions and video conference with recruiters.
The job fair will be hosted on Tuesday, July 14, from 1-4 p.m. People can register online.
