Monster Singapore (www.monster.com.sg), one of the leading online career and recruitment solutions providers in the region today announced the launch of its first virtual career fair in Singapore, taking place from 2 – 6 April 2013.

Developed to meet the changing needs of the modern day jobseekers and employers alike, the new concept offers jobseekers both in Singapore and abroad the opportunity to log on to a virtual exhibition and engage in real time with companies seeking talent in the country.

Designed to suit the increasingly specialised workplace and job seeking process across the country, the virtual experience lets jobseekers gain details about job vacancies in Singapore, apply for positions and even speak or live chat with a potential future employer, all from the comfort of their desk or home.

The Monster Virtual Career Fair enables companies to find talented candidates ready for today’s dynamic workplace on a single platform, and qualify them to ensure they meet the culture and role requirements.

Sanjay Modi, Managing Director, Monster.com (India, Middle East and South East Asia) said, “Monster helps employers and job seekers “Find Better” – connecting more efficiently and successfully through innovative technology solutions, tools and services. The job seeking and hiring process has evolved and Monster remains at the forefront as a leader and innovator. This new platform offers a huge advantage to job seekers as they can check in advance jobs that suit their skill set and desired working environment.”

“Today’s younger generation have 24/7 lifestyles so searching for that perfect job can be a testing and time consuming exercise especially when trying to juggle existing work commitments. A virtual experience that results in the same outcome by helping jobseekers to ‘Find Better’ from the convenience of their homes can only benefit jobseekers in Singapore,” Modi added.

This is the first time Monster is bringing this concept to Singapore. For employers, this latest tool is a natural progression in the war for talent.
