IT Employers Are Now Hiring Thanks To 3D Virtual Job Fair

The virtual job fair is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and is staffed with recruiters during normal business hours. The cutting edge virtual world application gives employers and job seekers a new way to connect and interact while remaining anonymous. Candidates can apply for jobs & learn about new career options with complete discretion and confidentiality.
“We wanted to reach the technically sharp, connected candidates that are completely at home in technical environments, but who may not yet want their candidacy disclosed,” said Steve Lowy, the company’s Chairman and founder. “Our virtual job fair provides candidates the opportunity to learn about openings, discuss career paths and explore their options without the stress or complexity of initial interviews. Once there is interest, then we can move on and engage in more traditional methods.”
“Richard”, a Second Life handle for an anonymous job seeker who recently participated in beta testing of the application found the virtual job fair concept intriguing. “I’ve had to look for jobs in the past and it’s always tough to get the process started, especially when you are already employed. This is cool.”
The application features a rich, interactive 3D world where users can meet, socialize, view postings and conduct initial interviews on site. A brief video overview can be watched at http://www.youtube.com/VirtualJobFair.
