Job seekers can connect at online fair

REGISTRATION has opened for an online careers event to help connect employers with job seekers.

The Virtual Careers Fair is an online platform where employers can showcase their business and vacancies to potential employees through a virtual stand, and connect to promising individuals in a real-time environment.

Proven a popular platform with both employers and job hunters alike, the 11-day fair will take place from February 18 until March 1.

With great online features such as chat and video technology, businesses can bring to life their vacancies while job seekers have the opportunity to really show off their skills and expertise to help them land their next position.

A wide range of employers will be attending to suit every candidate’s needs – businesses already booked to attend include IKEA, the Hesley Group and Victoria’s Secret.

The pre-registration process will ensure that only the most motivated job seekers attend the fair, while guaranteeing registrants entry to the event.

And everyone who registers before February 18 will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win an iPad Mini.

Jobstoday is part of Johnston Press, publishers of the News Post Leader.

Joanne Harwood, group category manager at Johnston Press, said: “We previously ran two very successful fairs last year focusing on the health care and customer service and sales sectors, so we are keen to help candidates and employers connect again all over the country.”
