Thanks to lockdown, many companies had moved to a completely digital workplace. In turn, various corporations have opted to communicate using online platforms like Remo to host virtual career fairs.
You can easily hold a career fair online and still give guests the information they need. In the case of Remo, certain features will make your career fair more special. So, we’re here to share our words of wisdom with you. Keep reading for our top platform features for your next virtual career fair.
1. Virtual Lobby
Networking is a key aspect of any virtual event. You need to give time for your attendees to get to know each other for a social aspect of the event. Virtual lobbies are a great platform features for your career fair. They allow your attendees to chat in a casual setting and get to know each other. While they are waiting for the talk to begin, they can share ideas and stories.
2. Customizable Floor Plans
Customizable floor plans will make your event seem like it is happening in a new location. Virtual events that just show people’s screens can be boring and as a result not interactive. You can customize your career fair using this platform feature.
Why not arrange your career fair in different stalls? You could have a different booth that your attendees can click on for different areas. When they click on the booth the speakers can give them more information on the area.
3. Guest profiles
A guest profile is an ideal feature for your virtual career fair platform. Your attendees can hover over recruiters’ names to see their profiles. The profile usually includes details of the recruiter such as:
- Email or contact details
- LinkedIn profile
The guest profiles will help recruiters to see the background of the guests to see who they would like to talk to. A summary of the person is helpful for larger career fairs to narrow down the person you’d like to interact with.
4. Breakout rooms or virtual tables
Having the opportunity to speak in smaller groups is key at a virtual event. There could be hundreds or thousands of people at your career fair and people may not want to speak in front of a crowd. On the other hand, with so many people at an event people could talk to each other. Breakout rooms or a virtual table have many benefits:
- They allow people to talk in smaller groups for a more intimate interaction
- The virtual table creates mimics the real-life experience of an event
- People with similar interests can have one to one conversations
5. Chat function
A good virtual career fair platform will allow interaction between your attendees. Although breakout rooms are great for in-depth discussions there’s a lot of people at these career fairs. Some of your guests may not have the time for a one-to-one interaction so a chat feature is a better option.
It is a good idea to allow group chats too so a recruiter can talk to many people at one time. Group chats will help recruiters to speak to more people during the event. You could also make the chat downloadable so that people can save their messages after the event.
6. Miro Whiteboard
It is important to present the information at your career fair in a clear way. There is a lot of information to take in and you know what they say- a picture speaks a thousand words. An interactive whiteboard is a great platform feature for presenting in a clear way.
Miro Whiteboard has many interactive functions. You can use different colors and sticky notes to present your information clearly. You can add text boxes to the screen to type text and change the size and color of the textboxes.
