CareerMosaic Plans Online Job Fairs on Yahoo!

Employment site CareerMosaic in New York said it will hold a series of online job fairs targeting major U.S. and international job markets on Yahoo!

The job fairs, part of a multimillion dollar global advertising agreement announced in November 1997, are the first of their kind for online recruiting on Yahoo!, the company said.

The job fairs will be held on all Yahoo! Metro sites in 12 major U.S. markets, on Yahoo!'s main site, and in native languages in locations around the world where both Yahoo! and CareerMosaic have sites.

The fairs will be announced by banners on each Yahoo! Metro home page, and featured on CareerMosaic's home page as well as on various other pages throughout Yahoo! and CareerMosaic.

The events, which began this week in Atlanta, will be held on a weekly and biweekly basis through Oct. 31 in New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Austin, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Chicago.

The international job fairs will be held in Australia, Canada, France, Japan, United Kingdom/Ireland, and Asia.

Each job fair will feature participating employers, with their corporate logos displayed, and offer job seekers a chance to win a prize valued at $3,500 by entering a sweepstakes contest. Each corporate logo will take users to a page with information on each company, job openings, and an online response form.

CareerMosaic offers more than 70,000 job listings from thousands of employers around the world, descriptions of more than 400 corporations, online job fairs, more than 50,000 resumes, research tools, and a special feature for college students, with links to employers and other resources for those entering the job market.
