Speed Hiring — HiTech Career Fairs are Back with a Twist

Speed Hiring -- HiTech Career Fairs are Back with a Twist

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) December 6, 2006

CareerDoor Inc. ( proves that Career Fairs for HiTech Professionals work and work well.

CareerDoor's events offer employers a highly targeted recruitment opportunity and access to a highly innovative speed-dating like interview service, while providing candidates with more than a job search opportunity through their inclusion of educational, training and community building networking opportunities.

"A well-organized event with exceptional service, the CareerDoor career fair provided us with a great quality and quantity of candidates. The event was a phenomenal success for our team and will result in many strong hires. I couldn't be more pleased," says Sharon Ashmeade, HR Consultant, Afilias Limited.

"Making sure that employers were happy was our top priority. We needed top quality candidates to ensure success and we were ecstatic with the quality of candidates that attended our inaugural event: 53% of attending job seekers were presently employed but looking for better positions and 75% of these job seekers had over 5 or more years experience. Companies kept telling us that we would only get new immigrants and students to our events, but that was not at all the case. We focused our marketing efforts on the experienced and passive job seekers, and the efforts paid off," says Terri Joosten, CEO of CareerDoor Inc.

"We produce technology events so it was a natural fit to have a technology twist to our events. We have implemented in our event software a matching and scheduling system that allows employers to pre-book 15 minute meetings with top prospects at the event. It gives them guaranteed scheduled one-on-one time with hot prospects and dramatically speeds up the recruiting process," says CIO and co-founder Chuck Mariotti.

CareerDoor's next HiTech Career Fair event for the Toronto Area (GTA) is scheduled for February 27/28, 2007 and events have also been added in Ottawa, with Calgary events soon to be announced.

CareerDoor events provide companies the opportunity to meet face-to-face with a targeted group of qualified high-tech professionals, enabling them to hire multiple candidates for one low fee.
