Washington, DC, December 09, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- In what might be described as a “virtual” stampede, excited job-seekers logged on to ejobfairs.net Wednesday for an electronic job fair in Washington, DC. The number doubled the company’s previous attendance records and caught executives off guard. “We rolled out a new marketing effort for this fair. Obviously, it worked,” said Chief Marketing Officer and company spokesman Jason Vrane. “We never imagined that our aggressive job seeker outreach would give us that level of response. It’s is a nice problem to have.”
The crush of job candidates slowed the company’s servers to a crawl. “We thought we would never have this issue with our server capacity,” said Vrane. “To prevent this from happening again, we have quadrupled our server capability and we’re happy to have needed to do it. It shows the overwhelming interest job seekers have in our service.”
As a result of the slow down, many of the job seekers were unable to complete their interviews as planned. “To correct this issue, eJobFairs.net is offering a second Washington, DC area fair on Thursday December 13th, free of charge to not only the employers and job seekers who attended the fair on the 5th, but to any interested employer in the Mid-Atlantic Region recruiting for Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland.”
While it is always free for job seekers to attend an ejobfairs.net electronic job fair, employers pay for the opportunity to interact live, in real time, with hundreds of potential employees. “We have so many job seekers that we are happy to open this fair up to any interested employer for free,” said Vrane.
eJobFairs.net LLC, has been developing and conducting the electronic job fair format since early 2005. Offering employers “freedom from the booth”, their software and website allow employers and job seekers to meet online and interview live on specific dates and times for specific areas and industries or demographic interests. “These live and fully interactive job fairs are not virtual. They are real events where job seekers and employers meet and interview one-one-one with each other.” says Vrane.
