Getting Hired is happy to announce that we will be hosting an Online Career Fair for job seekers with disabilities on October 5th from 12-3PM EDT. The event will offer the chance for job seekers to connect online with prospective employers to showcase their skills to receptive recruiters.
The event will bring together more than 20 of our employer partners, and each company will have at least 3 recruiters available to chat from 12-3PM EDT. Each candidate will have up to 10 minutes with each prospective employer, so it's important to prepare to make the best impression possible.
How job seekers can best prepare for online interviews
Adequate preparation is essential to getting the most out of an online interview. With a short timeframe to connect with a recruiter, job seekers need to be ready to highlight their skill sets and desire to work with each prospective employer.
Here are some of our top tips for how to prepare:
Each of these simple tasks will play a crucial role in ensuring you attend on time, are armed with a depth of knowledge about each employer and their potential jobs and have the right information to really impress the recruiters!
Best practices for job seekers during the Online Career Fair
Job seekers should always remember that first impressions count and when it comes to interviewing online, this is just as important as when meeting in person. For this reason, it is essential that candidates hoping to impress a prospective employer take the process seriously.
A great piece of advice is to dress like you are attending a face-to-face interview. This will help to put candidates in the right frame of mind to present themselves to the best of their ability, as well as helping to improve focus and to come across in a professional manner.
In addition, candidates should remember to ask for any contact information that will allow them to follow-up on their interview. It always pays to be proactive and send an email after the interview to thank the recruiter for the opportunity to connect.
Our Online Career Fair is a fantastic opportunity for job seekers to put themselves forward for a multitude of roles.
