Hiring can be tedious, especially for recruiters and job seekers. Employers have to process hundreds of applications and organize interviews to find the perfect hire. On the other hand, job seekers often go back and forth with emails to communicate with employers. There’s also the added hurdle of discerning genuine job openings.
What if there’s a way to get a smooth hiring process? Hirect presents a career fair called Hired in The Metaverse, which will focus on topics related to the new frontier of recruiting. This virtual event will dissect the challenges employers face when hiring, present functional solutions, and feature a career expo where job seekers can connect directly with employers.
This event will be held on February 17, 2022, at 1pm PST on the Venu VR platform. It is open to tech startups, founders, employers, and job seekers.
