NAAAP is committed to helping diversity-minded employers identify and hire the most qualified candidates, regardless of their race, ethnicity, and membership in NAAAP. As the workforce is becoming increasingly global and diverse, we are using technology to connect candidates to great organizations and important work.
Our first Virtual Career Fair is scheduled for Nov. 12, 2020 from 2:00-5:00 PM EDT.

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 three individual VCFs, on November 12, 2020, another on February 11, 2021, and another on August 20. 2021. While organizational information and job postings will appear on our fair website and employer’s site or pages, the 3 hours of each Virtual Career Fair will provide realtime interaction with recruiters 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.
Prices shown in the downloadable packet shown are for private sector recruiters. We can offer discounts to government, non-profit, and university recruiters.
For Job Candidates
Like an in-person career fair, a VCF will offer up to 25 recruiters, all with company information and some with job openings of the day or week. Please register for our Nov. 12 VCF and prepare for it seriously as a possible turning point for you! There is no registration fee.
(1) Get registered to receive updates by email and text. (2) Check periodically for confirmed recruiters. (3) Read How to Prepare for a Virtual Career Fair for tips offered by HR professionals. (4) Update your resume, clarify your career goals, and prepare a few talking points (your 30-second commercial).
