Registration Now Open for Employers and Job Seekers for Job Fair June 24th Connecting Veterinary Professionals Around the World

The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) today announced it has partnered with Banfield Pet Hospital® to launch the inaugural VMX Virtual Job Fair to connect prospective employers and job seekers in the veterinary community anywhere in the world in a highly immersive and unique 3D experience.

WHAT: NAVC will use its VMX Virtual platform, launched in January, to recreate the experience of a live, first of its kind for veterinary professionals, face-to-face job fair where job seekers can explore multiple companies and engage with company representatives, without having to travel. Veterinary professionals can automatically be matched with jobs they qualify for and directly connect and engage with organizations that are hiring today in the veterinary field. Along with Banfield, participating organizations include VCA Animal Hospitals, Petco, NAVC Retriever and other recruiters from major veterinary organizations.

WHEN: June 24, 2020 | 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. EDT

HOW: VMX Virtual uses advanced gamification and simulation technology to recreate the experience of being at a live event. Job seekers and other participants in the job fair will be immersed in an interactive 3D environment where they can move through and explore each sponsoring company’s virtual booth as if they were physically there. Job Fair participants will be able to talk live with company representatives, view and download content, watch webinars and videos and collect information in their “virtual backpack.”

REGISTER NOW: With thousands of open positions in the veterinary community available today, hiring organizations and job seekers can register now to participate in this unique global event and find their next job or next new hire.

“Even in today’s extreme economic times, the veterinary industry continues to be in a hiring mode with thousands of open positions for veterinary professionals worldwide. The challenge is, how to connect job seekers with hiring organizations when travel and the conferences which usually unite them are on hold,” said NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill. “Veterinary professionals who are looking for a job and those who are hiring can meet virtually and experience all that they normally would at an industry conference job fair through the VMX Virtual technology we introduced earlier this year in a break-through move for the trade show industry. NAVC is extremely excited to help veterinary professionals explore and land jobs by taking this technology to the next level and applying it to job fairs.”
