Virtual job fairs

No I am not talking about the Timesjobs variety, but as Dave Lefkow (now on his own blog, after leaving Jobster) reports, a job fair at Second Life !

With the much higher levels of interactivity now available on the web in virtual worlds like Second Life there's new hope that a virtual job fair can provide a lot of the same reciprocal benefits that an in-person job fair does. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to see TMP Worldwide experimenting with the concepts of networking, hiring events and virtual meeting places in Second Life with a new initiative called TMP Island.

Ah well. No Second Life virtual fairs for us in India yet. Broadband issues need to be sorted out before we can even think of such things :-)

Until then we shall recruit in the First Life mode :-)
