Fashion Career Expo has launched a highly-sophisticated online career portal in anticipation of its 5th New York City hiring event for the design and retail community on October 20.
'FashionCareerExpo.com also allows employers to post jobs, to search resumes and schedule event-day interviews with candidates of interest,' explains Bradford Rand, President & CEO of Expo International, producer of Fashion Career Expo. He adds, 'It initiates the hiring process as early as 2 weeks before the actual event.'
'Further,' Rand explains, 'the job fair is like 'speed dating' for the industry's top companies and talent. This event truly benefits both the professionals looking for a new job and the companies hiring new talent. In one day, someone can have over 25 immediate face-to-face interviews, a feat that might have taken months otherwise. The companies benefit by conducting literally hundreds of rapid-fire interviews, more than they can ever achieve -- all within one day at NYC's Fashion Career Expo.'
Susan Levine, President of fourthFLOOR Fashion, the event's Presenting Sponsor, highlights the rapid expansion of this labor segment: 'The Fashion industry and the employment market are on fire! The growth rate is off the charts and all fashion forward companies are flourishing and searching for the very best talent.'
Fashion Career Expo events attract more than 1,500 experienced fashion and retail professionals and feature top companies, including The Movado Group, Target Corporation, Eddie Bauer, Brooks Brothers, TJX Companies, Maidenform, Fossil, H&M, Liz Claiborne, Swatch, & many more. The employers recruit across the fashion and retail spectrum, conducting interviews for retail planners, buyers, merchandisers, sales associates, store managers, apparel, footwear & accessories designers, graphic designers, visual merchandisers, textile/fabric specialists, patternmakers, seasonal retail salespeople, and more.
