Unisys Career Fair is Today

Unisys Corporation plans to expand the number of employees in its Charleston office to support Medicaid claims processing in West Virginia and surrounding states. The Fortune 500 company has 15 immediate openings to add to its current staff of 85.

To fill its immediate technology and analyst openings, Unisys is hosting a Career Fair at the Charleston Civic Center on March 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Company officials will be present to conduct interviews with qualified candidates on the spot.

This is a great opportunity for those looking for work in the information technology, medical and insurance fields.

Anticipating a need for future employees, Unisys is working with the Community and Technical College System (CTCS) of West Virginia on a new educational initiative. The company and colleges are partnering to develop curriculum to certify participants in Medicaid proficiency.

“Unisys is expanding and investing in West Virginia because they have confidence in our work force and our economy,” said Gov. Joe Manchin. “The educational initiative is evidence of what can be accomplished through public-private partnerships. The program is an investment not only in Unisys' future in West Virginia, but in the futures of our citizens.”

The new educational program may be ready for students to enroll as early as the fall 2009 semesters.

“Through this educational initiative, Unisys helps prospective employees secure the training they will need to work with us,” said Teresa DiMarco, president, Unisys Health Information Management. “The students will find that certification will open doors to many career opportunities with Unisys, hospitals, insurance companies, Medicaid agencies and more.”

The Charleston Area Alliance and the CTCS will be joining Unisys March 5.

Unisys is a worldwide information technology services and solutions company. For more information on Unisys jobs openings, visit
