Let’s Get Back to Work!

Job creation and securing the best candidate(s) to meet your business needs are key to Economic Recovery. In an effort to assist our membership with filling their full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions, this page has been created under the Economic Development section of our website.

Chamber members are welcome to email job fairs, employment open houses, and job listings to joanne@chincoteaguechamber.com for inclusion on this new resource page.


Job Fairs & Open Houses

May 18
3pm – 7pm
Community Job Fair at the Chincoteague Center, 6155 Community Drive. Businesses from the island and surrounding areas will be on sight with interview opportunities, as well as at their own locations to help manage social distancing guidelines. Contact the Chincoteague Center for more info at (757) 336-0614 and TheChincoteagueCenter.com Click here for Job Fair flyer
EMPLOYERS – You asked and we listened! Many folks reached out to us during the process of planning our virtual Job Fair and let us know they would much rather meet potential employees in-person than online. Taking that feedback we have decided, along with the support of the Chincoteague Chamber, to host an in-person Community Job Fair. We will have spaces available at Chincoteague Center as we have in the past but, this year we have decided to also give businesses the option to set up a space at your own location if you are more comfortable with that. We want everyone to feel safe enough to participate in whatever way works best for them and their business! If you are interested please fill out the form below and return it to Chincoteague Center by mail, email, or in-person.
