Job fairs can be stressful for many employers. Making your booth stand out to job seekers isn’t always easy when you’re in a sea of tables, signs, and posters with other employers. Adding some flair to your booth with tablets, laptops, and other technology can help you stand out from the crowd and gain the attention of the kind of job applicants you need. Learn more about how integrating technology into your job fair setup can help take your recruitment efforts to the next level.
Show off the goods
Your company works hard to maintain a high-quality website and engaging social media pages, so put them to work for you at your next job fair. Having multiple laptops and tablets at your booth allows candidates to peruse your website and social media pages, learning more about your company and how you present yourself to the public.
Speaking of social media, you can create excitement by encouraging attendees to snap selfies of themselves at your booth and use designated hashtags when they post on social media. Hold a drawing for those who participate and offer a gift card for the winner.
Cut down on lag time
Job fair attendees are used to handing out hundreds of resumes at job fairs, only to hear that they need to complete an application online. But how can you be sure that the standout attendees you talked to actually follow through on those instructions? Ditch the worry by having multiple laptops and tablets available for job seekers to complete online applications right at your table. You could even create a short form of your job application that can be completed in just a couple of minutes, with a more detailed application request delivered to the applicants’ email. This can also be a good time for you to gauge the tech know-how of job seekers. A bonus? You don’t have to keep track of all of those pesky paper resumes.
Show and tell
If you really want to put your company over the top at your next job fair, you might want to consider integrating virtual reality (VR) technology into your recruitment game. Creating a VR tour of your workplace gives applicants an inside view of the day to day surroundings of the job. Be sure to highlight any special amenities your workplace offers like a gym, cafeteria, or on-site daycare. If you’re looking to hire for specific positions at the job fair, you could even have a ‘day in the life’ style VR of the employee currently in that position, offering potential employees a glimpse into the realities of the job they’re applying for.
Technology on request
Job fairs can be a great opportunity for your company to find the ideal candidates to fill open positions, but only if you manage to attract the attention of job seekers. Integrating laptops, tablets, and other technology into your booth can give you a leg up on the competition but buying that extra equipment can be cost-prohibitive for most companies.
Renting these items for a job fair lowers the cost of using this tech significantly. Instead of having excess equipment sitting around your workplace, you’ll only pay for the items you need for the time you need them.
