After coming to your booth, attendees can click on different tabs (e.g., Contact Us, About Us, Programs, Jobs, etc.). They can view documents and watch videos to learn more about your company culture and jobs. Attendees can view job details and then apply to those jobs. They will also see a chat tab to start a group chat within your booth chat room.
The virtual chat room is always open; however, the hours that your company is present in your booth is defined by you. Employer chat hours are listed on your profile page.
All Silver and Gold Booth employers will receive an Excel file that will have candidate names, email addresses, and a link to download their resumes. Our team can also provide a Word/PDF version of resumes as a zip file.
You will get a list of:
  • Event attendees
  • Booth attendees
  • Anyone who clicked on the job apply link in your booth at the fair
Video chat is available for private (1:1) chat only.
  • We provide a slide deck template for you to customize or you can use your own.
  • There are two options for the webinar recording:
    • You can receive instructions, including the software to use for the recording, and complete it on your own time. Recordings can then be sent as an MP4 file. Some companies prefer this so they can record how and when they want.
    • We can schedule a Zoom meeting with you where you can record the webinar in the presence of one of the Virtual Job Fair team members.
By default it’s on-demand unless you want to play it at a certain time and handle the Q&A live
The volume of attendees that will be in your booth at any given time is hard to predict and highly dependent on the time of day. We recommend having as many recruiters as possible at your booth on the day of the event, but two people should be adequate to manage the chat conversations. One person can engage in the group chat room where you will handle general questions. Once you respond to any of those general questions in group chat, others will be able to see those answers and benefit from them. One person can handle private chat conversations.
You can send our team your planned schedule and availability, including your lunch time. We’ll add this info to your booth so that visitors know your team’s availability.
Yes. Like any physical event, we will have a swag bag available for each attendee. They can add documents and other materials from the employer booths to their online swag bag.
