Maybe you’ve taken an Uber to an airport. Or when you had a flat tire. Or, Halloween, to avoid the crowds parking — and you may end up in one on Black Friday. Heck, why not have a career fair in one?

Yes, this Thursday, while you’re sitting there in the back of the Prius hearing how the guy in front of you became an Uber driver, you could be interviewing. Right there in the car, while in the backseat. A mobile career fair.

Here’s what’s happening.

In Nashville, for three hours, an Uber-riding job seeker can use the promo code NASHJOBS. If they do, they can then request an interview. Eight corporations will be ready to interview them on the road, hopping in the car with the Uber driver who’s going to pick up the rider.

In addition to the 15-minute interviews, recruiters will also take resumes. Participating companies include Aspire Health, Asurion, Avenue Bank, Dave Ramsey, HealthStream, naviHealth, SmileCareClub, and, naturally, the one who’s hiring like mad itself: Uber.

Relode will power the back end of the system.
