There are thousands of hiring companies organizing the job events across the world but Women For Hire is the first of its kind providing opportunities exclusively to professional women to find their dream job with leading employers. The company was founded by Tory Jhonson in 1999, who is currently working as its CEO. She has earlier worked at ABC News & NBC News. When she was unexpectedly fired from the job, it led her to become an entrepreneur, now she is doing a great job by creating a platform for the professional women to find the job of their choice in big and small companies operating in diverse career areas. It organize a number of recruiting events and online job fair and facilitate hiring process.
Online job fair is similar to in person expo, the only difference I find is, in online fair job seeker and employer communicate via instant messaging or telephonic conversation rather than face to face talk with physical presence. The advantage of online expo is that it allows the job seeker to find the job from home or office and avoiding the hassle of making travel and saving on commuting expenses for finding a job. In 2012, the Women For Hire is conducting five online job fair, out of these one is a national job fair and four are regional job fair.
