REELZCHANNEL DRAWS THOUSANDS AT JOB FAIR TO BUILD TALENTED WORKFORCE FOR NEW CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS
Network Relocates to Albuquerque and Creates New Jobs for Producers, Writers, Editors & More to Make "TV About Movies"
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO [January 15, 2009] - ReelzChannel® - TV About Movies™, the only cable/satellite network and website dedicated to everything about movies, drew thousands of talented individuals to a popular and productive job fair held this week in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the site of the network's new corporate headquarters beginning in early 2009.
Nearly 3,000 people thronged to the all-day event, lining up to meet with ReelzChannel's senior network executives and apply for positions in areas ranging from entry-level administrative jobs to creative and managerial posts in a variety of areas.
In the new location, television programming, website development, creative services, and marketing and communications will all be housed in one facility for the first time since the network launched in September 2006.
ReelzChannel was impressed by the high-caliber group of people who participated in the event. As a result of the Job Fair's success, the network is now confident that it can fill up to 80 percent of the 100 new positions being created by the relocation to the new facility with a workforce experienced in making and marketing television. New Mexico is below the national unemployment rate and has a rich talent pool, so this far exceeds the network's prior projections of a 30 percent fill rate, according to Stan Hubbard, Chairman and CEO of ReelzChannel.
