Promote your vacancies through #VirtualJobsFair next week
By Sarah Wood
If you are an employer with a vacancy to fill, you can promote posts on social media with the National Careers Service next Monday (16th November), while local job hunters can look for opportunities and pick up valuable advice.
Gloucestershire employers should post their opportunities on Twitter between 3 and 4pm, using the hashtags #VirtualJobsFair and #SouthWestJobs
Local careers advisers will be running two free webinars during the jobs fair on to help people boost their job searching skills and prepare for interviews:
- Job searching hints and tips webinar - 1.30pm-2.30pm. Register here for your free place.
- Preparing for interviews webinar - 2.30pm-3.30pm. Register here for your free place.
Employers are invited to bring the Virtual Jobs Fair to life by getting involved in online discussions and encouraging job seekers to ask questions about their opportunities. They can do this by posting and commenting in the Facebook events or replying to their vacancies on Twitter.
Maninder Hayre, head of delivery for the National Careers Service in the South West and Oxfordshire Region, said: "It has never been more important that young people and adults in our region can find the right opportunities for them and that local employers are able to fill urgent vacancies in order to meet current demands. Our Virtual Jobs Fair in October saw more than 190 vacancies posted across the South West and Oxfordshire region and we are encouraging local employers to get involved to help us reach and support more people back into work than ever. In addition, our advisers will be delivering webinars on job searching and interview skills to give jobseekers the best possible chance to succeed."
If you are a job seeker, look out for the hashtags #VirtualJobsFair #SouthWestJobs and #OxfordshireJobs on Twitter on Monday afternoon, for opportunities from Cornwall to Oxfordshire, Swindon and Gloucestershire.
