The State of Michigan, one of the first states in the nation to bring job seekers and employers together in a live virtual environment, will host a MiVirtualCareerFair career networking event on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 from 10 am to 4 pm.
There are more than 60,000 jobs available in various industries on the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website, which connects Michigan employers to qualified talent as well as provides resources for job seekers. MiVirtualCareerFair allows employers to connect with top talent and gives job seekers the opportunity to apply for dozens of available positions without the inconvenience and expense of traditional job fairs. Since the first MiVirtualCareerFair event in February 2012, more than 90 employers and more than 8,000 job seekers have been connected.
Within MiVirtualCareerFair, employers host exhibitor booths that include links to job postings, company profiles, employee benefits, and employer contact information, and allow job seekers to communicate one-on-one with company representatives. Post-event, employers receive in-depth analytics including candidate resumes, applications, chat transcripts, and booth visit data. All job openings posted during the fair will be accessible to participants for 30 days after the live event.
The MiVirtualCareerFair event will provide an opportunity to:
Connect and interact with recruiters and business owners from wherever you are, avoiding the time and expense of traditional career fairs. Review available positions and submit resumes for multiple job listings. Meet and interact with other job seekers in the Networking Lounge. View informational videos in the Auditorium. Use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to search for connections and update your status from within the event. Participation is free for job seekers, who can register, view informational videos on the virtual environment, and learn how to navigate within the environment here.
These employers will take part in the August MiVirtualCareerFair and will be looking to fill a wide range of positions:
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
Dart Container Corporate
Exotic Automation & Supply
State of Michigan
Another MiVirtualCareerFair event is scheduled for Wednesday, November 13, 2013.
