More than 30-million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits since mid-March, and while many of them will be able to return to their job when shelter in place restrictions are relaxed, but sadly, many will not. To help keep job seekers connected to employment opportunities, Astound Virtual has opened up their virtual career fair platform to be available anytime.
"It is hard to believe that just a few moths ago, the unemployment rate was the lowest it has been in more than 50 years, and we hope to get back there as quick as possible. We are proud to make our platform available to all companies who are fortunate enough to still have hiring needs during this tough time. The virtual career fairs have connected more than 6-million job seekers with thousands of companies over the years, and it is a great tool to keep recruiters and job seekers connected when unable to meet in person" Stated Kevin O'Brien, Managing Partner, Astound Virtual.
The virtual career fairs allow for real-time chat via text, audio, or video, and employers can showcase their company to attending job seekers from the comfort and safety of the home or office. To make it easy for companies to host their virtual job fair, Astound has waived the fees typically associated with the design of their booth and training of the recruiters who will attend.
In addition to a world-class platform, Astound also delivers high-caliber talent to every virtual career fair. Companies can focus on chatting with the talent during the job fair. Astound has hosted more than 220 virtual career fairs already in 2020 that have connected more than 230,000 job seekers to companies looking to hire. Astound hosts their own virtual career fairs for; veterans, college students, healthcare, engineers, workers with disabilities, clearance professionals, and more.
Companies have the option of attending an Astound Virtual Career Fair alongside other employers, or Astound can design a tailored event for just their company. If your company is considering a virtual career fair, you can request a free demo from Astound on their website
