Are you gearing up for the 2023 series of Virtual Career Fairs by Highered? If so, you’re taking a significant step toward landing your dream job or internship. These virtual career fairs provide a unique opportunity to connect with potential employers from around the world. To help you make the most of this opportunity, we’ve compiled seven essential tips and best practices to guide you before, during, and after the event.

Make it Easy for Recruiters to Find You

Recruiters are actively searching for potential candidates during and after the event. Ensure your profile is complete and up-to-date. The more information you provide, the easier it is for recruiters to spot you and reach out.

Be Active and Engage

Active participation during the fair increases your visibility to employers worldwide. Attend webinars, conferences, and live chats. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and interact with speakers. Starting conversations can significantly enhance your chances of making a lasting impression.

Have Your CV Ready for Inspection

Take advantage of the CV Clinics, which are hosted live twice daily. These sessions offer invaluable insights and tips to improve your CV. Each session focuses on different resumes, so be sure to participate and refine your CV for maximum impact.

Show Up Prepared

Virtual fairs demand the same level of preparation as in-person events. Remember, your first impression is crucial. Dress professionally, turn your camera on, and present yourself in the best possible light. As the saying goes, “dress for the job you want.”

Time Your Appearances Wisely

Virtual fairs have a tight schedule, and you can’t visit multiple booths simultaneously. Review the event schedule in advance and prioritize your attendance based on your interests. If multiple recruiters are available simultaneously, choose the one that aligns best with your goals.

Research Beforehand

When you have a recruiter’s attention, don’t waste time asking questions that can be easily answered online. Conduct thorough research on the companies you’re interested in. Show initiative and genuine interest in their organization. Be proactive in your conversations.

Secure Your Chances

After the virtual fair concludes, don’t forget to follow up with the recruiters you’ve connected with. Reintroduce yourself and reference specific topics you discussed during the event. This personalized touch can help them remember you and increase your chances of progressing in the hiring process.

By following these seven tips, you’ll be well-prepared to make the most of your experience at the Virtual Fairs by Highered. Register now to gain access to this valuable opportunity and kickstart your career journey.
