What to expect
A Virtual Career Fair is a scheduled online event where prospective candidates can interact with recruiters to learn more about job openings or apply for a role. NAAAP is planning stand alone VCFs, the next being Nov. 4, 2021 and Feb. 10, 2022. The August 6 Career Fair will be organized in conjunction with our national and virtual Leadership Convention.
Organizational information and job postings will appear on our fair website and employer’s site, the 3 hours of each Virtual Career Fair will consist of corporate spotlights (livestream/video meetings for recruiters to talk to multiple candidates who log on) as well realtime one-on-one interaction between recruiters and candidates like an in-person career fair.
With the advent of technology and the precautions for the COVID pandemic, NAAAP’s Virtual Career Fair platform will enable recruiters to: (1) Submit hiring criteria or desired skills for screening job seekers and using chatbots to conduct that screening, (2) Schedule interviews before and during the career fair, (3) Build brand awareness for an employer and project the company’s mission, culture, and brand, and (4) Chat using text or video with candidates. We recommend two recruiters per VCF. (5) Premium recruiters will have a dedicated video-based realtime presentation spotlight. Link
Prices shown in the downloadable packet shown are for private sector recruiters. We can offer discounts to government, non-profit, and university recruiters.
