Understanding the 4 Different Types of Virtual Hiring Events
With the advent of COVID-19 and the impact it’s had on the economy and job market, it’s easy to see why in-person job fairs have stepped aside and let virtual hiring events take center stage. Virtual hiring events are online events that were designed and developed to connect employers and hiring managers with prospective employees. Job candidates are allowed to learn about what jobs are available, network with company representatives, and submit resumes to the companies they’d like to work for.
Furthermore, as an employer, you have the opportunity to market your company and connect with a broad range of talent. Because of the pandemic and the inconsistencies, it has created within our economy and the job market, recruiters and other hiring personnel have had to turn to technology to counteract its impact. We offer 4 virtual hiring platforms for corporate CEOs, employers, human resources directors, and other hiring organizations which we’ve listed below.
Virtual Career Days
To collect resumes, identify top candidates, and market their company brand to those prospective employees, some businesses and organizations will choose this platform for their recruitment efforts. Those in attendance will be able to engage with hiring personnel, learn more about prospective employers, and speak with some of each company’s existing employees.
Virtual Career Fairs
Virtual career fairs usually target college graduates. As such, they enable candidates to engage and network with several prospective employers at the same event. In some cases, job candidates are required to create an online profile before the event. An online virtual job fair will enable you to connect with hiring organizations and human resources directors.
Virtual Professional Development Events
Professional development is the #1 priority for the serious job candidate. These events include masterclasses, seminars, and job training thereby helping employers attract the right candidates. More specifically, they will target only those individuals who desire to learn new skills or want to sharpen the skills they’ve already acquired. Considering the hybrid nature of learning and working in the pandemic, virtual development events are the right opportunity.
Where virtual hiring events are concerned, web seminars, or “webinars” as they are more commonly referred to, are less interactive. However, they are a great way for human resource departments and hiring managers to reach a broader range of job seekers. It’s also an ideal way for companies to market their brand and showcase the top aspects of their workplace environment.
