Tips for Slaying Virtual Career Fairs

If you think virtual career fairs are a relic from COVID’s peak, think again. While some adaptations made during COVID are thankfully a thing of the past (goodbye, pajama pants!), virtual career fairs are here to stay. In fact, many recruiters now consider these events essential hiring practices.

Whether you’re looking to make your next move or trying to land your first post-MBA job, attend Forté’s Nov. 9 Virtual Career Fair and Nov. 7 Virtual Career Fair Strategy Session to develop a plan to get noticed and make the most of this beneficial opportunity.

Benefits of Attending a Virtual Career Fair

Here are some compelling reasons to hit the “register” button on Virtual Career Fairs, including Forté’s November 9 event:

  • They’re efficient. In-person interviews and company visits are essential, especially once you’ve confirmed serious interest in a position. But when you’re still in the shopping phase, virtual career fairs offer an easier, more time-effective option to ask questions of several recruiters to learn about multiple companies and opportunities – all from the comfort of your living room.
  • They’re curated. Job searching online or reaching out to your network can be laborious. Virtual career fairs do a lot of the heavy lifting for you by gathering recruiters from top companies in one place so that you can focus on finding a fit with the right organization, instead of struggling to just get your foot in the door.
  • They’re comfortable. Sometimes in-person job or informational interviews can feel intimidating, as if hiring managers are scrutinizing your every move. At virtual career fairs, recruiters understand that you’re there to simply explore opportunities, learn about their values and culture, and ask questions – and they want to make the best impression on you, too.
  • They’re energizing. Job seekers often find virtual career fairs to be easier to navigate and less fatiguing than physical ones, reducing the stress associated with recruiting events that require nonstop activity and movement from one company to the next.

Virtual Career Fairs are fast becoming one of the most effective tools in recruiters’ toolkits. Learn how to make the most of Forté’s virtual career fair with top companies on November 9 and land the job of your dreams – from the comfort of your laptop.
