Having only just written about the meme thing that is the German urban colonisation of Second Life, I have just become aware of another...
June looks set to be French IT Recruitment month in Second Life. For those who know me, French IT is something close to my heart - or at least, my wallet. So having had a tip-off that there was a new meme/theme about, I got down to a bit of serious Googling and quickly turned up some interesting factoids. OK... interesting to me, at any rate.
First up, we have the French recruitment company TMPNEO. I don't know if they're related to the TMP who have been in Second Life for a while now, but I do know they are pushing a recruitment fair in SL running from 19th to 21st of June, at their island - unsurprisingly named TMPNEO (or at least, that is the implication). The fair, rather clunkily named Neo Job-Meeting, is recruiting for the French IT firms:
- Alstom a power and transport company,
- Areva, an engineering(?) company,
- L'Oreal - because I'm worth it.
Almost at same time as this event, Accenture, the global IT and management consultancy, will be hosting their own recruitment drive aimed at the Francophones of Second Life. On the 18th June they will host Accenture Speed Recruiting, but since this is by invitation only, again you need to get that application in. (Or maybe you need to get your application in by that date - my French is appalling). Catch the vid on their website - it's quite impressive.
Anyhoo - if you are fluent in French, an SAP or SOA architect and fancy big money in return for being worked into the ground, then this could be your golden opportunity.
PS: I work for one of these... Can you guess which one?
PPS: BBC2's "The Money Programme" is being broadcast live in SL on Friday, 1st June from Avalon island - at 19:00, 20:00 and 21:00 (UK time).
