This resource section will provide you with an overview of what the platform will look like, tools to help you attract good candidates and promote
your brand. There are a few things you should prepare before participating in the event:
Obtain a good quality .jpeg version of your company logo that can be uploaded to your exhibitor booth
Prepare your job postings so they can be viewed by the visiting job seekers. They should be .doc or .pdf format
Prepare any handouts or promotional material you wish to have available in your booth. Should be .pdf format
If you have a corporate video describing what your company does, it should be included. This is an effective tool that will add value to your booth.
Identify staff members who will be available to answer online chat requests the day of the event.
The construction of your booth is very quick and easy. Event coordinators will assist you in getting it ready and letting you preview it before the event.
Your booth will be customized to your organization based on the content you provide. The picture to the left is an example of an employer booth. The monitor screens are interactive objects that the job seeker will select to download information and/or watch video content you provide.If you don't have some elements (such as a corporate video) other information can be substituted in that space.
When a job seeker wants to speak with you, they will select the chat feature and you will be notified on your login device (smartphone or computer). You simply answer the notifier and converse with the person the same way you would text on your smartphone or through a program such as Microsoft Lync.
If you get a question that you cannot address, the event organizer will be online during the event to answer questions and help direct visitors to where they need to go based on their questions.
It is asked that you have multiple staff people present in your booth during the live event to keep chat waiting times short for job seekers.
