San Francisco, CA (PressExposure) July 14, 2009 -- Companies need quality people working for them, despite the challenges of the current economy. Each day, companies that were once steadfast American brands like GM and Lehman are now filing for bankruptcy. Traditional recruiting methods are expensive as well as time consuming. That is why companies have begun to employ more creative and non-traditional methods of outreach. In an effort to maximize shrinking recruiting budgets, Alumwire [http://www.alumwire.com/] has created a low-cost and time efficient way for businesses to seek out potential employees. Through use of patent pending online chat capabilities, video chat, and Virtual Career Fairs (VCF), employers [http://www.alumwire.com/index.php?employer] are able to conduct initial interviews at costs much less than direct travel expenses, not to mention the huge time savings.
Alumwire has created the first interactive resume database [http://www.alumwire.com/registerRecruiter.php] of new and experienced college graduates from the top 25 Universities, as deemed by US News & World Report. The network is extremely user friendly and allows corporate recruiters to narrow the selection pool of highly qualified candidates down to the specific candidates they are looking for. Once one or multiple candidates are found, a Virtual Career Fair that utilizes all of the real- time chat technologies developed by Alumwire can be used, acting as a catalyst in the recruiting relationship. This online chat capability provides a fast and cost effective way for recruiters to reach out to potential candidates and establish a more personal relationship than that of other job boards or popular social media platforms. If recruiters wish to conduct an interview while keeping the costs at a minimum, they can conduct an interview via webcam and cut back on travel costs in these tight economic times.
