JOHNSTON Press and Jobstoday has opened registration for its latest national Virtual Careers Fair to connect talented job seekers to local and national employers.
The Virtual Careers Fair is an online platform where job seekers can browse top companies from across the UK, connect in a real time environment and apply for advertised vacancies - all for free - and from the comfort of their computers.
Proven a popular platform with both employers and job seekers alike, the 12 day fair will take place from September 2 to13.
Exciting online features include chat and video technology; businesses can bring to life their vacancies while job seekers can speak to employers to really show off their skills and expertise to help them land their next job. Job seekers can also take advantage of the compatibility test which allows them to find out which companies are most suited to them.
A wide range of employers will be attending to suit every candidate’s needs – great businesses already booked to attend include Nationwide and Sodexo.
The pre-registration process will guarantee registrants entry to the event ensuring they don’t miss out. Plus, all job seekers who register before September 2 will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win an iPad Mini.
Joanne Harwood is group category manager at Johnston Press, owners of the Melton Times. She said: “Our aim is to help candidates and employers to connect all over the country. With busy lifestyles searching for that perfect job can be a time-consuming exercise, especially when trying to juggle existing work commitments. A virtual experience, which results in the same outcome by helping job seekers find better opportunities at the convenience of their homes, can only benefit job seekers.”
Job seekers interested in the fair are encouraged to sign up for free today at www.jobstodaycareerfair.com to ensure they are guaranteed entry from |September 2.
