One of the main themes that permeates throughout all the business units here at West Corporation is that technology removes geographical barriers when hiring talent. In other words, you’re no longer restricted to hiring whoever can make it to a single headquarters office in a reasonable amount of time on a typical day, but instead are free to seek out the candidates who are the best fit.
We also talk about how opening up the talent pool leads to a more diverse mix of business, educational, cultural and life experiences, giving the organization a broader range of thinking and approaches to draw upon.
On Thursday, February 21, 2013 West Corporation is living that message by holding our first-ever Diversity (Virtual) Career Fair. Using the virtual environment technology from InterCall Event Services, job seekers from around the U.S. will have an opportunity to check out and chat online with representatives from business units including West Corporation, Intrado, InterCall, West Notifications Inc., West IP Communications and West at Home. They’ll also have the opportunity to apply online from within the virtual career fair.
Each business unit will have its own booth, so attendees can move from booth to booth to learn about the opportunities and requirements as they experience West Corporation’s technological leadership. After all, there’s nothing like seeing a company’s cool technology in action to get you excited about it, and show why the company is different from the competition.
West Corporation is very committed to bringing diversity to the workplace. The positions available through the virtual career fair are diverse as well, covering a wide range of areas including customer service and inside sales, field sales, IT/Engineering, marketing and product management to name a few.
