KCBD holds second annual virtual job fair

By Tiffany Pelt - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Job seekers, get ready. Starting at midnight you can log on to kcbd.com's 48- hour virtual job fair. All day September 24th and 25th you can browse over a dozen businesses and search through more than 100 job positions.     

There's no dressing up. There's no rushing from booth to booth. All you have to do is sit at a computer, fill out applications, and email them straight to the employers.

"It saves you a lot of time and allows us to get down to what we need to get done, and that's finding our clients the right people," said branch manager Pierce Adams of ItsQuest.

Adams used the virtual job fair last year and says he received between 75 to 100 applications. Out of those 25 applicants were hired. "It's been a very successful venture for our company. I would recommend it to anybody," said Adams.

Last year over 7,000 different computers logged in to the fair. There was also 27,000 page views and more than 800 applications submitted. This year some of the businesses include Lubbock Cooper ISD, Aflac, Farmers Agency, Texas Tech University and Goodwill.
