“This is an excellent way for hiring companies to avoid the costs of travel, food and lodging when reaching out to potential employees,” says Mike Vogel, Director of Virtual Events for Shaker Recruitment, Advertising & Communications, the company responsible for developing and monitoring the 3-D virtual environment. “It’s also a great way for companies to demonstrate how they are innovative, environmentally friendly and on the forefront of technology.”

Visitors to the event only need a computer and Internet access to experience everything they would normally find at a traditional career fair. The virtual format will provide the opportunity for:
•      Live conversations between recruiters and candidates via instant chat and/or webcam.
•      Uploading and submitting candidate resumes for various job postings.
•      Interaction with fellow attendees in the Networking Lounge.
•      Integration with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to search for connections and update statuses during the event.

Exhibitors will be able to customize their virtual booth to match corporate branding efforts. They will also receive in-depth, post-event reporting that includes chat transcripts.

“We’re anticipating that as employers and job seekers realize how easy and economical it is to find each other through online media, events like the Trucking Virtual Career Fair will gain in popularity,” says Brett Scott, Business Development Manager for “This is such a convenient way for job seekers to connect and interact with employers and other professionals in the transportation industry.”
