HR.com, the largest social network for human resources (HR) professionals, has partnered with VeteranStrong to bring hiring companies a career seeking pool of experienced candidates from the Veteran/Reserve/Military Community (VRMC) by expanding job matching likelihood for job seekers and recruiters alike. The HR.com real-time online virtual recruitment event platform enables recruiters to chat real time with prospective employees from their desktop.
VeteranStrong in its educational platform supports successful reintegration of Servicemembers, veterans, and their families in order to keep them “VeteranStrong” and provide resources and services that apply to the VRMC’s. VeteranStrong.me
VeteranStrong typically engages the more traditional in-person hiring events and career fairs which will be effectively complemented by expanding online. With virtual career fairs, layered over a physical event, the total number of job seekers is expanded and additional recruiters can participate all from their desktop.
Career fairs, whether face to face or virtual, enable both the candidate and the hiring company to do preliminary pre-screening for fit and culture and conduct a first interview. Recruiters and job seekers alike can save time and money. http://veteranstrong.me/career-resources/
