Schaumburg, IL, USA (13 August 2019) – Employers seeking great tech talent and IT professionals interested in exploring new jobs and professional development opportunities have the opportunity to connect in a virtual environment and access a rich repository of career resources during ISACA’s bi-annual Online Career Fair on 25 September 2019 from 11:00AM – 3:00PM EDT (UTC -4).
This event allows ISACA members not only to search IT job listings, but to also post their resume, apply for positions online, chat in real time with potential employers, and access career coaching via Catapult—all for free. Companies seeking qualified candidates for open positions in IT and information systems benefit from having exposure to highly skilled, experienced and certified IT professionals from around the world, all in one place. By sponsoring an online booth, a registered employer can easily engage in online conversations with prospective employees and determine whether they might be a good fit for the company’s roles.
“ISACA research has demonstrated that organizations worldwide continue to struggle to fill open roles for qualified IT professionals on their teams,” said Brennan P. Baybeck, ISACA board chair. “We know that a skilled, technology-minded workforce is critical to not only keeping businesses running optimally, but also has far-reaching impacts worldwide around security, data privacy and the ability for enterprises to effectively leverage technology’s growing capabilities. ISACA is proud to connect its talented professional community with leading employers and valuable resources to help practitioners and organizations achieve their full potential—and further drive the positive potential of technology globally.”
