Un porche?

Un porche est une pièce ou galerie se trouvant devant l’entrée d’un édifice, formant avant-corps bas, placé devant la façade du bâtiment qu’il commande, il est souvent hors Å“uvre.

This weekend we visited Angajatori de Top – as we were very curious about their strategy and positioning (their event took place in the last days of the Easter holiday).

Since the competition on this market is hard, we had our people at Sala Palatului – a small team counting visitors and a bigger team gathering on-site information. I’m happy to say that we received a full report and some of our predictions turned out to be true.

First of all, trafic.ro is providing us precious info about the online visitors of the official website:
– 7.303 on Friday
– 3.780 on Saturday
Total 11.083 online visitors

Our people brought us extra information. The event didn’t have a proper visitors count (the officials counted the distributed catalogues but there were visitors taking more than 1 piece or no catalogue at all). This is were we stepped in and had our own count:
– 2.707 on Friday (rush hour 13:00-14:00)
– 5.042 on Saturday (rush hours 12:00-15:00)
Total: 7.749 people

I guess 7.749 is a very good number for a holiday weekend. You can notice that the online figures are quite the opposite but that’s another story. The good number on Saturday is due to the good TV coverage they had on Friday.

Of course, there are other stories to tell but since I’m an egoist :), I’ll keep them to myself.

  1. Indeed… competition. They have also the advantage that they positioned the event a couple weeks before yours.

    That poses a couple of problems for your event:
    – a company might not be interested in taking part in two big events in the same month finding candidates for the same jobs.
    – a company might not be interested to pay for two recruiting events in the same month and would rather attend another event in another period (give them the chance to open new position, filter the current cvs, etc)
    – coverage, media might not be interested in ‘another recruiting event’ news
    – students or job seekers will put their CVs twice at the same company, in the same month

    I think you come a bit late with the promotion of the event. I heard of hipo.ro at least with a couple of months ago.

    I also counted just 50+ companies as listed for TCB, well below the 100+ promised figure 🙂 I have to be honest that i also noticed that only a very few number of companies are listed in both the events.

    Just some thoughts i had while reading about the event… i am not affiliated with any of the organisers of the events.

  2. Well, first of all, their event had a different concept.
    You’ll have to see TCB in order to understand it and its full potential and benefits 🙂

    We have many top companies interested in TCB (although they are not yet online) and some of them will be for the first time in a career event this year.

    I guess You’ll have to check the website on daily basis in order to see what’s new 🙂 and I assure you that you shouldn’t have reasons to worry 😉
