The Value in Virtual Career Fairs
Virtual career fairs often consist of company presentations, descriptions of open positions, one-on-one time with hiring managers, and on the spot interviews.
Free Preparation Assistance
When organizations and agencies host virtual career fairs they want everyone to benefit, so they provide additional resources. Some of these free resources include resume writing and interview preparation before the virtual career fair begins. It is extremely beneficial to take advantage of these free resources so you are prepared for an immediate interview.
Know Which Organizations Will Be There
Most career fair registration pages also contain access to a list of what organizations will be in attendance. This is a helpful tool in deciding if this particular virtual career fair is right for you. Knowing which organizations will be attending the event gives you a chance to research the company and their open positions to prepare for a one-on-one interview.
Hear Directly from Hiring Managers
This is a great opportunity to hear from hiring managers about what skills and education they are looking for or would consider for certain positions. Being able to connect with hiring managers one-on-one will allow you to gain understanding of what they look for on resumes and cover letters.
Building connections with prospective employers could give you a leg up during the hiring process. Make sure to connect with hiring managers or company presenters through LinkedIn or by exchanging E-mails so you can maintain those connections and grow your network.
Organizations are Eager to Hire
Organizations attending career fairs have open positions they are looking to fill or are collecting applications for positions opening soon. The benefit of attending a virtual career fair is that you are not wasting your time applying for positions that may or may not have already been filled.
By preparing ahead of time for a virtual career fair you can increase your chances of getting hired by taking advantage of resume writing tips and interview preparation. Give yourself a competitive advantage by researching what organizations will be there and focus on building connections.
