KPMG has announced it is to hold a global online recruitment event. The World Jobs Fair, aimed at both qualified professionals and recent graduates interested in obtaining a career within KPMG, will be held from 9am on 24 September until 9am on 26 September lasting exactly 48 hours. Specialist sectors being advertised through the site are tax, advisory and specialised audit services. More than 10,000 keen applicants have registered to attend the event. The opportunity will be given to watch live webcasts, chat with KPMG audit, tax and advisory professionals about a career with the firm and apply for positions directly from the event. Director of global recruitment Keith Dugdale said: 'The World Jobs Fair is all about using the web to bring the global job seeker and KPMG recruiters together.' 'Despite the current talk of economic downturn there is still an underlying shortage of talent' he added. For more information or to register for the event, visit www.kpmg.com.
