For companies and candidates who can’t travel, AgCareers.com has a new option – a Virtual Career Fair. The company says the online technology provides employers with a time-efficient and cost-effective platform to complement a company’s current recruiting strategy. Employers connect with candidates from their office, using their company computer, during the chat times they designate on the events. Employers may connect with specific AgCareers.com communities at two different fairs.
The first is the Resume Database Fair taking place on September 27, 2016. This event will give organizations the opportunity to connect with active job seekers who have their resume in the AgCareers.com database. Employers can use this tool to screen and recruit sought-after job seekers.
The second event is the Two-Year & Technical Colleges Fair on October 6, 2016. This virtual fair will allow organizations to connect with active talent in agriculture who have a two-year/diploma/technical degree or certifications. The event gives employers the opportunity to tap into this uniquely trained candidate pool that often lacks opportunity for the traditional career fair engagement.
“We’re excited to expand our virtual setting for employers and job seekers to connect through these two Virtual Career Fairs,” said Ashley Collins, education and marketing manager for AgCareers.com. “While we operate in the niche industry of agriculture we have various communities within our industry and we’re excited to help employers and job seekers get in touch with each other for a more in-depth conversation about careers that otherwise they wouldn’t have the opportunity to discuss without going through a costly interview.”
