eBizDocs Helps Unite Pandemic Displaced Job Seekers with Recruiters



eBizDocs, a local scanning service bureau and digital transformation expert, is making a big difference for workers displaced by the pandemic. Rather than scanning resumes at the Albany Job Fair, as performed in the past, eBizDocs is scanning resumes early to connect job seekers with recruiters, right now. Reviewing electronic resumes allows recruiters to identify the candidates they need and can hire. Many companies are essential and hiring for immediate needs. eBizDocs will continue scanning batches of resumes to connect job seekers and recruiters on a consistent basis. The first batch of resumes are already in recruiters’ hands, and the most recent submissions are being scanned and distributed this week. Delayed due to event restrictions, the Albany Job Fair is scheduled for May 20th.

Like many businesses doing what they can to make a difference, eBizDocs is providing resume scanning services at no charge. Over the past 20 plus years, eBizDocs persevered through many business disruptions including 911, and other local natural disasters. The countrywide COVID-19 shutdown is the most disruptive eBizDocs has ever seen, and the company is thankful for being in position to help job seekers and recruiting businesses.

“With the higher than normal unemployment rate, the next Albany Job Fair will attract many job seekers and we are pleased our scanning service will assist them in quickly making the connection to new employment,” said Jason Abare, Vice President of eBizDocs. “It’s been a difficult period for employers and job seekers. Once the non-essential and social distancing restrictions are lifted, we are optimistic business and employment opportunities will quickly rebound.”

“The recent jump in unemployment created an overwhelming number of displaced workers seeking immediate employment. These workers are anxious to rejoin the workforce in full, part-time, temporary or seasonal positions as fast as possible to support their families,” said Darcy Knapp, CEO, SEO Web Mechanics. “eBizDocs’ scanning services are helping close the gap by accelerating the recruiting process and connecting job seekers with recruiters that are interviewing remotely and hiring right now.”

The Albany Job Fair features free seminars for job seekers designed to help achieve better results with interview coaching and resume writing. Job seekers can attend a full day of seminars offering the latest hiring tips. Over 50 companies will be on site, many are interviewing and hiring on the spot.
