Monster Singapore, one of the leading online career and recruitment solutions providers in the region has launched its first virtual career fair in Singapore. The virtual fair will be on from April 2 to April 6, 2013. According to the company, this fair is aimed to help companies find talented candidates ready for today’s dynamic workplace on a single platform, and qualify them to ensure they meet the culture and role requirements.
Talking about opting for the virtual 3D medium, Sanjay Modi, managing director, Monster.com (India, Middle East and South East Asia) said, “Today’s younger generation have 24/7 lifestyles so searching for that perfect job can be a testing and time consuming exercise especially when trying to juggle existing work commitments. A virtual experience that results in the same outcome by helping jobseekers to ‘Find Better’ from the convenience of their homes can only benefit jobseekers in Singapore.”
This virtual platform also allows the jobseekers to test the working environment of a prospective employer. This in turn
improves the hiring process and the rate of retention for an employer. Modi confirms that the new concept offers jobseekers both in Singapore and internationally, the opportunity to log on to a virtual exhibition and engage in real time with companies seeking talent in the country. “The job seeking and hiring process has evolved and Monster remains at the forefront as a leader and innovator. This is the first time Monster is bringing this concept to Singapore. For employers, this latest tool is a natural progression in the war for talent. The virtual experience lets jobseekers gain details about job vacancies in Singapore, apply for positions and even speak or live chat with a potential future employer, all from the comfort of their desk or home,” he added.
