Scaling a recruiting events strategy across disparate geographies poses a challenge for employers from both a budgetary and resource allocation standpoint. Physical recruiting events can also cause logistical issues for both active and passive candidates that prevent them from attending. When talent acquisition teams and candidates are unable to find a way to connect – both parties lose. 

We created Virtual Career Fairs to solve the budgetary, scheduling, and logistical problems associated with scaling an event based recruiting strategy. Virtual Career Fairs give employers  a more convenient, practical, and cost efficient way to scale their event strategy and candidates a way to connect with employers that isn’t disruptive to their daily schedules.

What are Virtual Career Fairs?

Virtual Career Fairs are chat-based online events that enable recruiting teams to centrally manage the sourcing, candidate capture, and branding of their events. Learn more by watching this short video.

Scaleable De-Centralized Hiring: 

Scale your event strategy with confidence across all of your locations with the ability to segment your events into unique event pages by geography or team. This makes it simple for franchises and other types of businesses to manage the unique marketing and communication challenges that come with filling positions for multiple disparate locations. Each segmented event page also generates it’s own unique URL.

Reduce Costs by 70% Per Hire: 

On average it costs $1,000 to $20,000 to sponsor or host one physical career event, this can place pressure on Talent Acquisition leaders to either host fewer events or reduce budget for  events. Adding scale to your event strategy with unlimited Virtual Career Fairs will help reduce pressure. You can expect your Virtual Career Fairs to contribute 3-5x more candidates to your event driven candidate pool. This increase in volume translates into a subsequent reduction in cost per hire.
