Astound Virtual- a global leader in talent recruitment solutions is offering free virtual career fairs for any company that is hiring remote workers during the Coronavirus quarantine period.
" With so many people having already lost their jobs due to the Coronavirus, we wanted to do our part in helping those who may have jobs that would allow a person to work from home until things got back to normal, and our virtual career fairs are an effective way to connect job seekers and recruiters" Said Kevin O'Brien, Managing Partner of Astound Virtual.
By hosting a virtual career fair, companies can still interact with job seekers, in real-time, and without the need to travel to and from the event location. The virtual career fair allows both sides to chat, and the job seeker can apply for open positions in real-time. Recruiters are given the contact information and resume of each attendee for follow-up after the career fair.
Companies that have already expressed an interest in using the platform to host virtual career fairs includes; Verizon, TTEC, Penske, and Travelers.
There are some restrictions on what companies can utilize the platform to host a free virtual career fair such as; must have work from home (remote) job opportunities, must be hiring immediately, all jobs must come with a salary (no commission only jobs), if your company does not have remote jobs, you will need to have at least 100 jobs available, and those companies offering remote opportunities will be given preference.
"It was only a few weeks ago that the country had more job openings than we had job seekers to fill them, but in just a matter of weeks, that has flipped upside down. We recognize there are some companies that are fortunate enough to still have job openings at this time, and we are happy to partner with them to put America back to work until this pandemic is over" Said O'Brien.
