San Jose, CA--March 24, 1997--Designed for those in the technology business, the next Talent Scout Job Fair--a collaboration between The San Jose Mercury News, Silicon Valley's daily newspaper, and Lendman Group West, a San Jose-based division of The Lendman Group of Virginia Beach--will be held on March 26-27 from 2-7 p.m. at the Westin Hotel at the Santa Clara Convention Center (Santa Clara, CA). Attracting leading companies such as PeopleSoft, Seagate Technology, Octel Network Services, Lucent Technologies, and Lockheed Martin, the Talent Scout Job Fair will feature more than 10,000 square feet of exhibit space. More than 3,000 are expected to attend.
The Mercury News is renowned for publishing the nation's largest collection of technology-oriented recruitment ads; The Lendman Group established the career fair concept and is a leader in the field. By combining their strengths, The Talent Scout Job Fair provides a powerful tool for job seekers and recruiters alike.
Job seekers can register online at www.mercurycenter.com/talentscout/, the Talent Scout career site in Mercury Center, the newspaper's electronic publication.
