How to Design a Virtual Job Fair Program

Sourcing right-fit candidates is a daunting challenge, and many recruiters are feeling the pressure. In 2020, COVID-19 disrupted many business practices across the globe, with heavy hits to employee retention and hiring rates. 

Many recruiters turned from traditional interviews, job fairs, and mass hiring events, and explored virtual tools instead. Since the onset of the pandemic, 45% of employers have increased their use of virtual hiring events.[1] 

Beyond the rapid increase in virtual hiring over the past year, experts believe the trend is here to stay; they predict that 80% of recruiting will remain virtual for the foreseeable future.[2]

    • Step Five: Measure Engagement and Event Success
    • Step Six: Add Virtual Events to Your Recruiting Arsenal
    • The Lynchpin of Success

 

If recruiters want to keep up with the hiring curve, they need more than a basic online job board or Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Instead, they should look to capitalize on the rise in virtual hiring with virtual job fairs designed to connect candidates and employers from anywhere in the world.
