I will be traveling Sep 17, 2012

I will be traveling this week and I would like to know what options are availble for me on the go. I do not have mobile web. I may be able to get access to a computer at some points in time, but not all the time.

Eye checking Sep 24, 2012

Next Wednesday I am having my eyes checked and I am going to have my pupils dilated, so I won't be able to see practically anything during the day, and probably during the next 48 hours. I will miss the recruitment day and I would like to know what I can do...will I be able to participate later???

Will I be able to follow the event on a mobilephone on the recruitment day?
Do I need special downloads?

I guess, we don't need to send any CVs, since it is already in our profile...

Should be able to participate from a smartphone Sep 24, 2012

You should be able to participate via smartphone. The streaming content (sessions) may be a bit large from a data transfer standpoint and may not be ideal on a smartphone, but you should be able to see all recruitment posts and express interest without problem.

Expressing interest will send the recruiter a link to your profile so that they can then communicate with you, and if desired review your CV - so no need to have your CV on hand or available to send - simply attend, and exp

Timing Sep 26, 2012

Hello,
I'm on Pacific Standard Time zone.
Looking at the schedule, am I right to understand that the first two presentations can be accessed real time only?
"Managing Cross cultural project" etc. If so then it will be 3am on my time so I won't be able to attend.
I see the last 3 events are On Demand so I can access those events whenever I want next day?

thank you,

Access to on-demand content - on-demand content will be available for the 2012 virtual event series Sep 26, 2012

I could not attend the proz.com day on 25th. I tried to access of the relevant on-demand content without success. I registered before the event. Does-this mean we can only access one hour after the presentation for the on-demand option?

Quick question Sep 26, 2012

Hi guys,

Quick question, sorry to bother but did not find the answer in the event's FAQ- why could we (as recruiter) post only 5 posts while there are agencies that listed a lot more?

Thanks,
Anne

Hi Anne Sep 26, 2012

Corporate members are able to post up to 15 needs. There was additional details at http://www.proz.com/virtual-conferences/365/recruitment/about?page=lsp - I will need to make sure that the FAQ is better updated.

Thanks for letting us know. Hope you're doing well!

Regards,

Drew

Hi Drew,

Thanks, my bad, I should have looked better. Makes sense that corporate membres get those extra benefits.
Everything's well, thanks! Hope for you as well!

Good luck with the event!

Cheers,
Anne

This Recruitment event is not for Interpreters Sep 26, 2012

I am feeling a bit disappointed, now. The potential of this event is high, but is not targeting Interpreters. Efectiveness is close to zero for important pairs like English/Spanish.
It does not matter if we count with 15 chances to express interest in any of the companies, if there is only a couple of offers for interpreters.
This event should be repeated, next time focusing in the Interpreters portion of the profession.

Cheers,
Cristina Pulido-Vielma

We need more recruiters! Sep 26, 2012

...At least in FR>EN. Although I had the right to express interest in up to 15, there were only 5 listed in my language pair/direction, including one for which I am not qualified (strictly legal translation) and one that is not really FR>EN but EN>EN. I must admit that this is a bit disappointing, as I have been fishing for new clients lately and was looking forward to the recruitment day to find some.
Better luck next time (and please do call on my services if ever you need them - no harm

I am on pacific time. I checked yesterday and thought I can watch the on demand videos after the event, but it turns out only ProZ members can get access to it. So the demand sessions are not free to attend with registration? Disappointed.
