Fisher/Unitech announced today the launch of its second installment of No Engineer Left Behind , a virtual job fair for engineers. Fisher/Unitech, a software reseller with 10 Midwest U.S. locations, collaborated with 6Connex to make over 800 jobs available leveraging the 6Connex Virtual Experience Platform. The virtual job fair can be accessed funtech.veplatform.com and will be online through Nov. 30, 2009.

The virtual job fair is a continuation of these companies' community service commitments to helping displaced designers and engineers get back on their feet, the companies say. Through 6Connex, the pioneer of virtual technology solutions, the company is offering this service at no charge to neither exhibitors nor attendees who visit.

Interested candidates will find over 25 exhibiting companies such as GE Lumination, Nook Industries, Utilimaster, Haworth, SolidWorks Corp. and SPX amongst the exhibitors looking to hire. An entire hall is dedicated to the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) , with more than 800 job listings, information on member benefits, technical communities, local events, and professional development resources as well as an area for displaced workers to apply for SME membership at a reduced rate.

Candidates can log on to the virtual job fair anytime day or night and visit company booths loaded with media-rich content such as corporate videos, audio files, PowerPoint presentations, white papers, case studies, web links and more, in addition to viewing job openings. Fisher/Unitech is planning three live chat days where booth representatives will be online to answer questions, interact with job seekers and accept resumes online via chat sessions.Three live dates are available in September, October, and November.
