DIVERSITYinEd.com — 62 — Spring Issue 2020 VIRTUAL JOB FAIR Navigating the Virtual Job Fair – Where Job Seekers and Employers Immediately Connect B ecause jobseekers can attend the fair from anywhere, the virtual fairs are both conve- nient and efficient. Teacher candidates can turn on their computer and within minutes connect with employers. Without standing in line, you can visit more than one employer at a time, being able to multitask and interact privately and within group conversations, benefiting from the questions others ask. The growing popularity of virtual events may also be reflected in this candidate's comment: "I feel like it [virtual event] is more personal than in-person fairs. I feel like I am getting more attention." Without the travel limitations, virtual events offer the possi- bility for recruiters, subject matter experts and hiring managers to join the chat sessions and interact with multiple candidates simultaneously while reviewing and downloading candidates' résumés in real time. The technologies also allow recruiters to person- alize the experience in private interactions, including one-to-one video chatting, which results in an inter- view-style form of engagement as well. ■ Easy-to-use virtual environment from any device Learn About Employers Job seekers can browse through employer booths and access company content for more informed interactions. Connect With Employers Job seekers can discuss positions with employers using chat tools to better match their expertise against the job. Download Employer Materials This provides candidates with the option to save brochures, forms and other collateral for future viewing and sharing.
