Overcome time, money and travel limitations with virtual job fairs that allow candidates and companies to interact freely. A virtual careers fair is an engaging and targeted way to run an organised event that can bring together some of the best candidates from all across the world to make recruitment more efficient than ever before. 

Key Benefits of Virtual Job Fairs

  • All vacancies are structured in an easy to access format
  • Unique video CVs can be uploaded 
  • Candidates can be filtered in advance 
  • Interactive interview booths with live chat
  • Applicants can network with staff in real time
  • Live presentation and seminar auditoriums
  • Networking areas with group discussions and surveys 
  • Resource Centre with job information and on-demand content
  • Analytics can be stored from delegates 

Taking Virtual Networking to the Next Level

Having been delivering bespoke virtual events for businesses of all sizes for many years, we know how to help you get the most from your virtual careers fair. To keep the process as efficient as possible for all parties, candidates can apply for their preferred positions so you can have a record of each user profile and their CV to filter through the options.

Once you have narrowed down the potential candidates, unique meetings or one-on-one appointments can be setup in the different booths using a full diary management system to schedule out the day. Both internal departments and exhibiting companies are able to set up these meetings using a centralised calendar to avoid double bookings and each booth can be customised so you can maintain a content rich event presence that suits you.

Hosting a Successful Virtual Careers Fair

With our virtual job fair platform being purpose-built to host powerful virtual networking events, everything you could need to provide a well organised event is available. You will be granted access to a comprehensive range of iVent high-value features which are fully customisable to allow you to run your event as you please, tailoring the day around your business goals. With a unique video resume option, online auditoriums for live presentations and private networking areas, cover all ground with the intuitive and attractive interface that is easy to use for hosts and delegates alike.

In comparison to traditional recruitment events, the scope of virtual careers fairs is huge. Being a forward thinking way to recruit staff without physical barriers, you can reach candidates from a wider geographic region while reducing the cost of your hiring process. To speed up the process, the CV search filter allows organisers to browse the resumes which have been uploaded by delegates and instantly invite any suitable candidates a real-time video interview room or schedule a video interview for a later time.

Are you ready to get started?

For time-sensitive events where businesses are looking to hire with a quick turnaround, the virtual job fair platform can be adapted to suit. New jobs can be posted during the event and any suitable applications made will lead to one-to-one interviews conducted on the very same day. 

Sourcing the Best Talent through Virtual Job Fairs

In such a competitive environment, using virtual networking opportunities to connect with a wider audience can lead to higher quality recruitment. Virtual careers fairs widen the pool of candidates so you can select from the best and reach out to the most suitable applicants. As well as virtual networking with some strong talent, the powerful online platform allows for presentations and discussions from the hosts so candidates can get to know more about the nature of the company to decide if the fit would be right for them.

Switching to virtual job fairs can seem like a big step but has shown to broaden the horizons for multiple businesses across various industries. Removing the location barriers mean not only can you hire candidates from further afield, but any local job seekers who would be unable to attend the date of a physical event will not be eradicated. The easy online access across all time zones mean organisations no longer need to miss out on finding the employees they deserve.
