While our local job-board vendors keep exclaiming how they are innovating by creating white-labeled copies of their existing products (both Brightspyre and Rozee btw), Bayt.com actually ends up doing something remarkable.
They’re holding the world’s first "virtual job fair" – a second-life-esque affair where each participating company will be given a virtual booth to showcase their company at. Attendees will be able have live video conversations with company reps at their booths, all connected via VoIP feeds.
This is what being remarkable is about – taking some big risks that get people (like me) want to talk about the service. The talk creates hype which eventually can make events like these exciting and successful.
Very cool – if any of you are participating in this pls do share your experience.
