Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
VisualCV, Inc. , the company reinventing the resume for the digital age, today announced a new collaboration with eJobFairs.net, a division of Complete Career Network Inc. whereby the two companies will bring together job seekers and employers in a hassle-free online venue. Combining their expertise, these career innovators will host the ultimate live job fair over the Internet on February 3rd —bringing together more than 20 employers and recruiters who will offer a range of positions within the high tech sector.
“Using their VisualCVs, job seekers can interview with hiring companies live from any computer, and demonstrate exactly why they should get the job by embedding standout work samples and career achievements,” said CEO Jeff Hunter, CEO of VisualCV. ”Working with eJobFairs, we’re able to offer our VisualCV.com members direct access to VisualCV employers in a real-time virtual environment -- enabling them to gain a competitive advantage and further their job seeking and networking capabilities.”
Unlike other approaches, VisualCV allows job seekers to embed work samples, testimonials, professional qualifications and more, in order stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs. Privacy settings ensure that VisualCVs can be shared selectively based on the sensitivity of their content or published widely as an Internet-based career biography.
“Uniting these innovative technology applications within the career marketplace, we are offering a new approach to searching for a job and attending career fairs,” said Hunter.
To register for the online job fair visit http://www.visualcvjobfairs.com. Participation is free for job seekers however candidates are required to have a VisualCV, which is also free and easy to build at http://www.visualcv.com.
The eJobFair experience takes the frustration and the cost out of looking for a new job. There’s no phone tag with the hiring manager, no travel to attend, and no standing in line for hours. Hiring Managers benefit from having easy access to potential candidate’s VisualCVs and by having the ability to streamline the effort typically associated with background research.
“These live and fully interactive job fairs are not virtual, they are real events where job seekers and employers meet and interview one-on-one with each other in real time,” said Jason Vrane, Vice President of Client Services for Complete Career Network Inc.
Leading IT and technology companies like Graham Staffing, Hoffman CFO, Mansonboro Partners, Motley Fool, Nextforce, Proxy Personnel, Rosetta, SportsPlex, The Heiden Group, and The Richmond Group are already signed up for the eJobFair, using their own company VisualCV as a way to communicate why they are a great place to work and list the vacant positions they are seeking to fill.
