Virtual Career Fair- Cisco Channel Partners

October 16, 2007 - 4 Comments

Career Fair Snapshot 1_001 Cropped Compressed 400.jpgSpeaking of hosting meet-ups in virtual places, and reducing carbon footprint, our public presence in virtual worlds is about providing a place for our customers, stakeholders, partners, and others, our ‘worldwide virtual family’, to meet for different purposes. Cisco will be hosting our first Cisco Channel Partner career fair at our Second Life campus, between the Channel Partner pavilion and the Technology Center building on Cisco Systems 3. Why have a Second Life career fair?Innovative tools such as networked virtual environments attract innovation-minded employers and candidates, increasing the possibilities for a well placed match of employee and employer. It allows for a low cost,”low friction” way for possible job candidates to meet prospective employers and for employers to meet candidates in a rich multi-modal environment. The cost of providing a space and for staffing and attending is minimal. Candidates will be able to use chat, IM, and SL voice to interview possible employers, and employers to better connect with candidates. If you are job seeking in the networking and IT arena, you will have an opportunity to meet our partners and have access to a wide range of Partner IT/Networking career opportunities within the European geography. The event will be held November 6th from 9-11 AM Pacific Standard Time, for our European Channel Partner participants and their prospects. Register at:
