SOUTH Tyneside job-hunters are being given a helping hand into the world of work with a new online service.
Jobstoday’s National Virtual Careers Fair has now opened, connecting talented jobseekers to local and national employers for the next 12 days until September 13.
The Virtual Careers Fair, launched by The Gazette’s parent company Johnston Press, is an online platform where jobseekers can browse top companies from across the UK, connect in a real time environment and apply for advertised vacancies; all for free and from the comfort of their computers.
With more than 25 top employers showcasing job offers, this latest tool is a natural progression in finding the best talent; top businesses attending include Nationwide, Sodexho, Rolls Royce, Zurich and Aldi.
Proven a popular platform with both employers and jobseekers alike, response to the fair has been encouraging.
Joanne Harwood, group category manager at Johnston Press, said: “By creating a fair that can be navigated as if you were there in person; it enables employers and jobseekers to connect more efficiently and successfully through innovative technology.
“This latest trend offers job seekers a huge advantage as they can find jobs that best suit their skills set and desired working environment”.
Job seekers can join the fair over the next 12 days; register for free here today at www.jobstodaycareerfair.com.
