Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Virtual Career Fair
A virtual career fair is a networking event where job seekers can engage with companies online instead of in person.
How Do Virtual Career Fairs Work?
There are two ways our Virtual Career Fairs work:
1. Attend a Career Town Sponsored Event: Employers and job seekers register for an event and get connected in real-time text and video chat in the employer's booth. All candidates will have created a profile, possibly upload a resume, and will be ranked for their match against positions that are available. Candidates also have the option to browse attending employers and request chats once in their booth.
2. Host a Branded Career Fair Event: Organizations, non-profits, schools, recruiting firms, and anyone else who would like to host virtual job fairs can sell/assign booths to employers and allow job seekers to visit these booths, learn about the employer, and discuss their qualifications as candidates.
Do Actual Interviews Take Place at The Career Fair?
This is completely up to the employer. Some employers use this forum for screening (and interviews take place afterward) while others conduct phone interviews, video interviews, or schedule in-person interviews during or after the event.
Many employers make job offers to candidates found through the virtual career fairs. Important: Joining employers’ chat sessions is the first step in potentially securing a job offer.
How Are Chat Sessions Initiated?
Once you enter the virtual exhibitor booth you can request to chat with recruiter(s) while in the booth. Employers then have the option to accept your request or schedule another time for a chat to begin.
If you are an employer that is interested in attending or hosting a virtual career fair and would like to learn more please either contact us or request a demo. We look forward to demonstrating how are platform can meet your needs.
