Re: The International Career Fair
Join us May 28, Thursday, for the fourth recruiting job fair event by GAX Technologies. The fair will be held from 6 am slt to 11 am slt. Jorden Andrew will be the DJ for the after party and will be playing lovely jazz tunes for the crowd live from 10am slt-11am slt. The European real life job fair is held in Second Life every six months at the Working Worlds Luxembourg sim. The popularity of the job fairs have grown immensely over the past two years. This type of recruitment for real life companies is the way of the future for big corporations. Second Life has become the virtual platform preferred by GAX Technologies to help their clients reach out and connect with their future employees. Job seekers attend the fair in search of finding their dream job or their next big career move. To help job hunters learn more about the fair and how it will benefit them there will be conferences and e-learning sessions at the Working Worlds location in-world. Working Worlds offers everything possible to help ensure the success of the job seekers.
During the November 2008 fair 3,500 candidates submitted their CV's, the May 2008 fair brought 2,767 CV's, and for the November 2007 fair there were 1,500 CV's submitted by candidates. Every six months the numbers of CV's submitted continues to increase which proves that people are responsive to an in-world job fair. Presently, there are over 3,500 CV's submitted for the May 2009 fair which will make this job fair the most successful one yet. In order to participate as a career seeker go to the Working Worlds' website www.working-worlds.com and register your CV, it's a very easy process and will put you on the right track to finding your new livelihood.
Cornelia den Hartog, Managing Director of 'GAX Technologies' and organizer of the Career Fairs is entirely convinced; 'The need for companies to attract new profiles from beyond the territorial limits is becoming more and more important. 'The 'Working Worlds' Career Fairs are in itself the most efficient solutions currently available to these companies without having to deploy significant resources. Our partners will be directly in touch with candidates who will not have to travel, but who may meet their future employer "Live" on Second Life'.
As we have stated before, it really does not get any easier than this and the results can be just as rewarding for both the employer and the job seeking employee. The Working Worlds sim gives a career seeker the opportunity to do something they cannot do outside of a virtual world. One can get up out of bed, walk over to the computer, and be interviewed without having to change clothing or pay travel expenses to interview with recruiters from prestigious companies for a job that he/she is qualified for. Using Second Life as a complimentary recruitment tool is just the beginning of the many uses of Second Life for real life corporations. Come down and discover a creative, fulfilling, and exciting world of opportunities. There is opportunity for everyone, you are invited to come and find that career you have always wanted it is just a teleport away!
