Staffing Firm Offering Free Advice Fairs for IT Job Seekers

As the ranks of unemployed IT professionals continue to swell, Veritude, a Boston-based staffing services provider, has launched a series of online advice fairs to give IT job seekers access to staffing experts on timely topics such as resume creation and

The Veritude Advice Fair series kicked off in April with a session geared to help job seekers make their resumes stand out. Attendees -- who provided their names and e-mail addresses only -- voted on upcoming topics, and selected "Maximizing the Value of Your Recruiter Relationship" for the next event, which was held May 6. Transcripts are available on the Veritude Web site.

The next online advice fair is scheduled for May 27. The topic is "Interviewing 101: Turning Meetings into Job Offers."

"Many talented IT job candidates have suddenly found themselves unexpectedly unemployed," says Veritude Vice President Kay Dougherty. "They've been caught up in recent layoffs, and since these deep cuts have inevitably affected high-performers, these are candidates who haven't had to look for employment in a while. Our free advice fairs give them an informal yet highly interactive means of procuring answers to their hardest questions from the experts at Veritude."

Dougherty notes that attendees can pre-load their questions by selecting 'Ask an Expert' upon registration.

In addition to its candidate services, Veritude provides hiring companies with complimentary white papers on topics such as behavioral interviews, managed services programs and co-employment.
