HR.com, the largest social network for human resources (HR) professionals, has partnered with VetReady to bring virtual career fairs to companies interested in reaching Veterans and military personnel seeking employment opportunities. The HR.com real-time online virtual recruitment event platform enables recruiters to chat real time with prospective employees from their desktop.
VetReady 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.
Job 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.
“In an ideal environment, virtual career fairs match the right candidates with the right recruiters and the right managers in real-time, while expanding the reach to eliminate geographical barriers.”
Debbie McGrath, CEO and Founder of HR.com
HR.com’s virtual career fairs provide the same look and feel as if attended in-person. The platform provides separate rooms where participants can explore and engage with potential employers, discover about career opportunities, ask questions and ultimately find the best fit for both company and candidate in the most efficient and hassle-free manner. Hiring companies will be able to directly attract the best talent from the pool of Veterans and military experienced candidates with virtual career fairs.
A non-profit organization based out of San Diego, VetReady works with military veterans; active duty military and their spouses who have been unemployed or underemployed for three months or more. Working with these candidates during major transitional periods, VetReady hosts free on-the-job training and job placement services. VetReady’s Job Resource & Career Training Fairs provide a venue for businesses and recruiters who can meet face-to-face with hundreds if not thousands of active military troops, Veterans, spouses to promote available resources and complete immediate, in-person interviews. www.VetReady.org
