Going to a Virtual Job Fair? Here's What You Need to Know!

No matter what stage in your career you are at, job fairs can help you get hired faster and move forward on your career path. Attending a virtual job fair can make the process even easier  

You have the opportunity to meet recruiters share your resume with a large number of employers that are looking to hire, network, and improve your communication skills – without even leaving your house. 

Whether you’re looking for your first job after graduation, pursuing new career opportunities, or need a better job, here are the tips you need to make the most out of a virtual job fair. 

Find out more about their history, mission statement, vision, products and services, customers or client base, current projects and initiatives, industry trends, and other relevant information.

1.Research the Companies that are attending

If you decide you want to attend, there are advantages if you register for the job fair. It gives you the chance to set up your profile and upload your resume for employers to look at beforehand.

2. Register

Figure out what you hope to achieve by participating. For example, a student looking for an internship will approach the fair a lot differently than an experienced professional making a career change would.

3. Have Clear Goals

Once you’ve defined your goals, make a list of the top employers you must meet and a secondary list of those that would be nice to meet (if time permits).

4. Strategize

From your research, come up with a few focused questions to ask that will help you learn more about the company and its employment opportunities.

5. Prepare Your Questions
