Frequently Asked Questions
What is a virtual career fair? A virtual career fair provides a way for candidates and organizations to connect online during a time-limited event. Each organization will have a virtual "booth" that they can customize with links, videos, social media, logos, and job postings. Candidates can view an employer's booth to learn more about the organization and their hiring needs. Candidates and recruiters can communicate via a text-based chat or video chat.
What platform is the Career Center using for the career fair? Premier Virtual, a career fair platform that offers visual booths, video chat, and text-based chat.
How will I communicate with recruiters? All conversations begin as a text-based chat using the platform's built-in chat box. When you're "in" an organization's booth (as in, you clicked on the button for that organization), you can start a chat with a recruiter - or, a recruiter can begin a chat with you. Some recruiters may ask you to move to a video chat.
