Job fairs are fantastic occasions for employers to meet lots of prospective candidates face-to-face at one event. Likewise, they are great for candidates to talk with a number of recruiters all in the space of a couple of hours.
However, cloud technology also makes it possible for employers and candidates to meet, talk and do work online, anywhere in the world. To help recruiters and job seekers understand how technology companies can make the most of online talent, Elance is our Partner for the upcoming TechStartupJobs Fair in London on 11 September 2012.

For businesses looking to staff-up a team on an hourly or project basis, Elance offers instant access to qualified professionals who work online and provides the tools to hire, view work as it progresses and pay for results.
If you are looking to jump-start a project, broaden your reach or just simply get things done, you will find that Elance is faster and more cost-effective than job boards, staffing firms and traditional outsourcing.
