  • As a ProZ.com registered translator or interpreter, you are eligible to participate in the recruitment day event.
    How does it work?
  • Registered translators and interpreters will be permitted to view all listings from agencies and LSP's that have recruitment needs. You will be able to sort and view listings by category.
  • Once you find a recruitment listing that you are interested in, you will be able to express interest in that outsourcer and grant that outsourcer permission to contact you via ProZ.com (your email and private contact data will not be revealed). Outsourcer communication will be through ProZ.com's proxy mail server.
  • You will only be able to express interest in those recruitment needs where your skill set and language pair match the requirements set by the outsourcer. This is a good reason to ensure that your profile is complete and up to date.
  • You may also wish to view this wiki article on winning strategies and profile completion - http://wiki.proz.com/wiki/index.php/ProZ.com_winning_strategies

  • Is there a cost?
  • No. Any registered ProZ.com translator or interpreter will be able to participate, however ProZ.com members will be permitted to express interest in up to 15 agency listings, while non-members will be restricted to express interest in only 5 agencies or outsourcers.


  • Thank you for your support of ProZ.com and ProZ.com events.

    smartphone Sep 24, 2012

    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 express interest in those recruitment posts that match your language pair and are of interest to you.

    Regards,

    Drew

    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,

    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 in requesting a quote)!icon_smile.gif
    Your trusty all-purpose translator (or nearly so)

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

    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.
