Why Attending an Online Career Fair is a No-Brainer for Employers

12 October 2016


In 2016, you would be hard-pressed to walk into a local coffee shop or library and not find every person within the confines of the space in possession of a smartphone, laptop, or tablet (and in some cases, all three).

 

As mobile devices become increasingly commonplace, growing numbers of professionals are turning online for everything from research to record-keeping, to seeking out new career opportunities.

 

One of the fastest growing segments of the online recruiting world are Virtual Career Fairs. Much like an Onsite Career Fair, these events attract exhibiting employers and jobseekers in an environment where they can connect and engage in conversations, although in an online event this all occurs without the need for travel.

 

The absence of travel costs is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the many reasons why Online Career Fairs have gained such immense popularity in the past several years. Along with the ease of use of online platforms, there is an incredible efficiency in recruiting at a Virtual Fair that just can’t be duplicated elsewhere. 

 

As a recruiter, you’ll have the ability to interview highly qualified candidates in your niche without having to leave your desk. You can pre-qualify candidates in your virtual line, view resumes while chatting with jobseekers, hold multiple one-on-one chats simultaneously, conduct follow-ups both during and after the event, and rate and take personal notes of each candidate you speak with. You’ll have access to a history page where all of their conversations, ratings, and notes are saved, and in the course of three hours you can have several dozen first touch interviews!

 

Come join us for the AgileCareers Virtual Career Fair on November 3, 2016 and connect with job seekers. The Virtual Career Fair adds value for hiring companies.

  • Employers may purchase booths and develop company profiles prior to the fair

  • Conduct up to dozens of first-round interviews with qualified candidates during the fair

  • Up to four recruiters may showcase open positions in the customized virtual booth

  • A rating system is in place for employers to score interactions and record notes

All conversations will take place from the comfort of attendees’ home or office – no suit or travel necessary! 


The event will take place on November 3, 2016 from 1 – 4 p.m. EST. To register, please visit the AgileCareers website at 
http://www.agilecareers.com/ and click on the banner at the top of the page.  We look forward to seeing you there!
