Career fairs allow companies to efficiently source, shortlist, and, potentially, hire candidates within a small time frame. These events are used to save time and make the process of hiring new people easier. Conducting career fairs virtually offers companies the same benefits and more. For example, virtual career fair softwares remove spatial barriers and attract global talent as well. The budget is usually a bit lower and there is no capacity or seating constraint.

While all of it sounds intriguing, hosting a virtual career fair has its fair share of challenges, especially for an organization that has little to no experience hosting virtual events. However, there’s nothing a bit of brainstorming and the aid of technology can’t beat.

There are features you can incorporate into these virtual career fairs that’ll not only increase your engagement but also allow you to attract the right kind of talent.

Essentially, you want to have a fast recruitment tactic and host an engaging and interactive event. vFairs offers a lot of features that address these aspects. Here are some of the must-have features for a virtual career fair.

1. Landing Page to Maximize Attendance

Landing pages are important features to ask about for your virtual career fair software. They’re of great importance, considering they’ll be at the forefront of your event marketing.

An exciting custom branded page that’s relevant to both your event and audience will attract more (relevant) people thanks to an eye-catching design. However, a landing page isn’t just about looking pretty.

You’ll need to set up a custom registration form. It’ll help you in collecting the number of attendees and their details. Such information will help you in organizing the event. You wouldn’t want to plan for 500 people, only to find an influx of more than 800 at your event.

A landing page should also have a career page providing information about the event and the kind of talent you’re looking for. Overview, schedule, agenda, exhibitor details, advice, and other information should be present on this landing page.

2. An Interactive Visual Experience within the Virtual Career Fair Software

Whether it’s an online trade show, a virtual job fair, or even a virtual conference, setting up an impressive 3D space can help create an interactive environment for your audience. It helps in recreating the experience of live events, minus the crows, noise pollution, or the expensive plane tickets.

For example, for our virtual events, we set up an entrance animation or an entrance hall that attendees enter when they log in. It mimics the feeling of walking into or entering a physical event. We also create virtual lobbies, exhibitor booths, halls, and even office spaces.

Customizability is another great feature to have. It lets you create a space that resembles your main headquarters or office building instead of a plain ‘ol boring template. And allows the applicants to get a feel of what it feels like to spend a day at the company.

3. Customizable Exhibitor Booths

Brand visibility is an important aspect of any virtual event. You need to get the word out and get attendees to visit your booth. A booth should mimic the experience of a physical one and represent your company culture.

A virtual career fair software should allow exhibitors to play around with custom-designed booths and should be allowed to personalize them to a great degree. Booths should also allow visitors to have easy access to information.

They should have tabs and other interactive options that lead to downloadable brochures, job boards, videos, presentations, or even chat options.

4. Real-Time Job Board

The major benefit of career fairs is the streamlined recruiting process. This makes hiring an easier task and one that’s not so much of a headache. You can post jobs on these job boards and receive applications in real-time. We can implement these job boards for any booth at your event.

These job boards will allow you to comb through resumes if you have specific hiring criteria. If you’re looking for specific skills you can use intelligent search filters that help you to find candidates in a shorter period of time. Job boards also allow visitors to effortlessly search for jobs in the companies they’re interested in. It also allows them an easy way to apply and submit resumes.

5. Immersive Content

This one should be quite obvious. Immersive content is important to engage and tweak the interest of attendees at your event. The possibilities are endless. You can set up a video repository. Allow employers to share compelling videos, that are streamable by the visitors. These videos can highlight company culture, upcoming milestones, and other aspects to pique the interest of job seekers.

You can also make use of video webinars. Dynamic webinars have proven to be quite popular in past events done through vFairs. Webinars have on-demand and live content similar to keynotes, discussion panels, Q&A sessions, and even content from remote speakers.

Overall these things provide an immersive experience for the attendees. It creates engagement and motivates job seekers to apply for different jobs. 

Conclusion

Virtual career fairs can help you recruit a diverse talent from all over the globe.

If you’re looking for a virtual career fair software for your event, vFairs offer all the mentioned features and more. We realize that different companies will have different requirements, so we try to cater to those in the best way possible.
