The event, which will run through March 5, is part of a series of online job
fairs targeting major U.S. and international job markets. The Los Angeles job
fair features employers such as Boeing, Canon Business Machines, Disney
Consumer Products, KPMG, Raytheon Systems Company, and ViaSat, and can be
accessed via the Yahoo! Metro Los Angeles site as well as through
CareerMosaic’s home page.
The online fairs are part of a multimillion dollar global advertising
agreement announced in November 1997, and are the first of their kind for
online recruiting on Yahoo!
The job fairs, which began in January, 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.
Similar events will be held on a weekly and biweekly basis through October in
Atlanta, New York, Dallas/Fort Worth, 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 features more than 70,000 job listings from thousands of
employers around the world, detailed descriptions of more than 400 of the
world’s leading corporations, more than 50,000 resumes to search at no cost
and free resume-posting, tips on job-hunting and resume-writing, research
tools, and a special feature for college students, with links to employers and
other resources for those entering the job market.

Inc., a recruitment and employee communications agency and a division of the
Omnicom Group. The site claims more than 35 million requests per month and
over 350,000 job queries a day.
