What to expect from a virtual fair

Virtual career fairs are online ‘events’ that allow employers and candidates to meet in virtual environments such as through voice calls or video chat rooms, and offer a number of advantages to both candidates and employers! Candidates benefit by saving valuable time which can be used on employer research and practicing elevator pitches. Moreover, candidates have the opportunity to meet with a wider range of employers, some of whom may not typically attend an all-day on-site event.


We will be working with Career Fair Plus to host our upcoming virtual career fair. Career Fair Plus is an app available on all Apple and Android devices. The app is also available on your personal computer. Career Fair Plus creates an intuitive, user-friendly experience for candidates and employers. Please download the Career Fair Plus app in preparation for the virtual fair and check out 
this video demo to see how it works!

 

Once you register for the fair, more detailed instructions on how to use Career Fair Plus will be sent to you via email. Please make sure to save westpacs@westpacs.org as a trusted contact in your email and also be sure to check your spam/junk folder to be sure you don’t miss any important information from us about your participation. We look forward to virtually connecting you with employers this fall!
