Totaljobs.com, the big British employment site owned by Totaljobs Group (itself owned by the global publisher Reed Elsevier), will offer a sort of virtual career fair with a snappy new URL – GradU8.com – at the end of October.
College grads looking for gainful employment will be able to log onto GradU8.com from Oct. 27 to Oct. 31. Each day will focus on a different career sector, including engineering, finance, professional services, retail, sales and marketing. The last day will offer a mixed bag of all other careers not covered. Visitors to the site will be able to view employers’ videos extolling the virtues of working at their companies; sit in on Webinars; and chat with recruiters, career advisers and fellow grads.
Job-seekers will also be able to download corporate profiles, videos, podcasts and brochures, and view job postings and apply for positions online. IBM and Enterprise Rent-A-Car are among the employers already signed up for GradU8.com.
