“Job dating” is the new buzzword of Wattaul Transporte, a specialist for short distance transport. The company based in Pöchlarn, Lower Austria aims to counteract the prevailing shortage of drivers.
“HR managers of our company and job seekers get to know each other during a first brief contact,” CEO Jochen Wattaul explains the procedure. He describes the “job dating” as an “innovative way of recruiting and presenting the company”.
“Job dating” gives Wattaul Transporte the opportunity to become familiar with a large number of potential job candidates in a short period of time, in an unconventional atmosphere. Participants in the “job dating” have a chance for a job as a driver with a successful transport company.
The next such event, in search of parcel delivery staff, will take place on November 17 and 18 at 6p.m. at the Rosenberger-Seminarhotel Ansfelden Süd (Upper Austria). No registration in advance is required. Basically there are business opportunities for candidates from different fields of activity.
Wattaul Transporte operates a fleet of 280 motorised units, which is continuously modernised. The company, which currently employs 350 persons, is targeting revenues of EUR 32 million this year. Thus, it would exceed the comparable figure of the previous year by more than 20 percent.
