Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
After two highly successful Virtual Events in 2011, CareersinGear.com and DriverJobs.com will host their 4th nationwide transportation Virtual Career Fair on Tuesday, June 12th from 10am-5pm CST. This live interactive event will be free to all job seekers. More information for both employers and prospective candidates is accessible at: http://www.truckingvirtualcareerfair.com.
Within the virtual environment, participating employers and job seekers will be able to interact in real time, whether via live text chat features or through a web-cam enabled interface. Employers can promote their job openings, feature their organization’s videos, collect resumes, and speak with fellow recruiters and job seekers. Job seekers can create personal profiles, network with employers and other job seekers, and update their status through Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn -- all while keeping their job search anonymous if they prefer.
“We see Virtual Career Fairs making a meaningful difference in recruitment to both employers and job seekers for years to come,” said Mike Vogel, director of virtual events for Shaker Recruitment Advertising & Communications, the vendor responsible for developing and monitoring the 3-D environment. “Total convenience. Access for candidates and recruiters across the country. Content shared in an innovative online space. And all built on a secure and highly reliable platform that is easy to navigate. It’s fair to say that virtual is well beyond a fad and is now a bona fide trend.”
“The transportation industry has fully embraced technology in its search for drivers,” said Brett Scott, business development manager for CareersinGear.com. “Virtual job fairs give carriers the ability to deliver their recruiting message in a proactive and interactive manner, regardless of where the driver is located. This is a distinct advantage in a highly competitive market.”
