This February, at Vlerick Business School all students had the ability to attend a Online Career Fair! That was an opportunity to communicate with potential employers and to find a vacancy of interest.

At first, after logging in, the students appeared in the digital space where he or she could see which companies are participating in the February Career Fair. When clicking on the Exhibit Hall, there was a possibility to read the information about each company and see which open vacancies they currently have.

Students were able to choose a chat of interest on the list after clicking on the Webinar schedule.

Another very interesting and important feature of the Virtual Career Fair that enabled our students to network with companies – the chat function! Students could chose any company or several companies from the list and enter a chat room. They were able to ask a question openly in a group chat, write a message to company representatives privately, or even have a call with them. That enabled students to get to know a specific company better and to network with company employees from different industries.

The Online Career Fair was an ideal opportunity for students to keep in touch with companies during COVID-19 times. A very useful tip for students attending future Fairs: enter as many chats of the companies you are interested in as possible, that will enable company representatives to start a conversation with you first.
