Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Unemployment rates rose in more than half of U.S. states last month, the latest evidence that hiring remains tepid across the country, but thanks to the launching of a new trucking virtual job fair website, truckers and the companies that hire them now have a quick outlet for recruiting in a personal setting.
“This is a website that provides the experience of a traditional job fair, but it’s online,” Gloria Martin, manager of digital development for eMedia Group, said about the new web site called truckingvirtualjobfairs.com. “There are live reps from companies seeking truckers, some looking for student truckers, and those looking for careers in trucking can live chat with recruiting representatives.”
Martin explained that the trucking virtual jobs fair website allows visitors to the site to browse through aisles of recruiting booths, click on booths for company information, receive job information, send business cards, upload resumes, create a profile photo, and live chat, just like a local job fair.
“You can browse through booth aisles such as CDL schools, paid CDL training, experienced drivers, team drivers, and owner operators,” Martin pointed out, before adding, “There is nothing like this out there.”
Martin said that in her opinion, virtual job fairs as a whole have been disappointing at best in the past, with low turnout of job seekers and employers alike, and far less interactive as her company’s new trucking virtual jobs fair web site.
“There has never been a trucking virtual job fair like this, and the trucking industry is always looking for new ways to recruit drivers, and now we’ve provided this method for the industry,” Martin stressed about the site that’s geared toward truck drivers, owner operators, student drivers, those who are currently unemployed or those seeking better positions.
“No one wants to just submit their resume to some email address and never hear anything back,” Martin said. “Our site allows you to actually interact with real recruiters hiring now.”
The digital development manager went on to say that if companies are hiring or searching for CDL students, they can create their own booth of different sizes customizable with logos and callouts, job listings, and log in to interact in real time with candidates from across the US by contacting eMedia Group directly at: email@example.com.
As to the main benefit the site offers to truckers and companies, Martin said, “It’s an amazing product with job placements happening live. It’s cool, fun, interactive, new, and for both students and experienced CDL drivers. There’s no other place like it.”
