A virtual career fair, or virtual recruitment event, is a virtual event that allows employers to connect with job seekers in a virtual environment, rather than a physical one.
Attending a career fair can be daunting for any job seeker, however, virtual career fairs are transforming the way in which job seekers and potential employers interact. Using interactive features such as webinar presentations, webcasts, live chat, chat rooms and more, virtual career fairs are breaking down geographical barriers and extending their reach.
Virtual job fairs offer job seekers the freedom and flexibility to interact directly with potential employers, so they can make more informed career decisions - all that’s needed to attend is a computer or mobile device with a good internet connection.

Virtual career fairs, or virtual job fairs, is a virtual event that allows employers to connect with job seekers in a virtual environment, rather than in-person.
Job seekers can attend online job fairs from anywhere in the world, any time and on any device with access to the internet. Attendees sign up to the virtual recruitment event via a registration page, which takes them through to the event auditorium where they can attend the event.
Virtual career fairs are multi-session online events, so they often include virtual booths where they can speak to employers and sponsors, webinar presentations and webcasts. Attendees can interact with employers or recruiters using interactive features, such as live chat, Q&A, discussions, polls and more. However, most virtual career fairs are bespoke, so the amount of features and sessions run within them varies from event to event.
Virtual career fairs have been growing in popularity in recent years, as businesses are transitioning their traditional job fairs to online recruitment events to extend their global reach, reduce costs and safely engage job seekers into the thousands. So, how do you host a virtual career fair?
Much like a physical job fair, hosting a virtual job fair involves a lot of planning and preparation. So, when it comes to running a virtual career fair, you can ensure it’s a success by following these simple steps:
Virtual events are becoming increasingly popular, as businesses are transitioning their traditional in-person events online, which is why it’s essential to understand the different types of virtual events.
Each virtual event type includes its own own unique features and provides various business benefits, but these are the main types of online events:
If you’re wondering what the benefits of hosting a virtual career fair versus a physical job fair, then the primary advantage would be increased attendance. On average, virtual career fairs attract 7x more attendees due to the unlimited capacity and round-the-clock convenience. Attendees are not restricted by geographical location, so they attend from wherever they are in the world on any device.
Meanwhile, jobs receive 36% more applications when paired with video content, so companies can attract more job applicants in a virtual environment with video than they would in-person. They will also encourage more direct interactions between job seekers and employers, as 30% of people are more likely to speak to a person in a virtual booth and 47% of people are more likely to ask a question virtually than in-person - as it is less intimidating interacting with a virtual avatar - and interactive features, like live chat and Q&A make two-way communication easier in a crowded environment.
