Many job fairs and career events are canceled due to the corona virus. We design a digital job fair and thus offer an alternative to employers and talented people looking for training.
Previous digital and virtual trade fairs often try to translate the well-known analog trade fair experience 1: 1 into digital. The result usually does not convince either exhibiting companies or visitors.
Our approach for a new kind of digital job fair: take over important elements of the proven career fairs, add exciting digital potentials and rely on simple and existing tools due to the high time pressure.
With talentine we create a framework for digital job fairs and other online career events. We rely on four components:
ORIENTATION: The basis of the event is a website to present the program, as a center of communication, with profiles of employers and options for filtering and matching.
INSPIRATION: Live lectures give keynote speeches and panel discussions.
CONNECTION: Conversations take place via video conference - 1: 1 and in small groups.
COLLABORATION: Workshops and other formats are integrated using different tools - individual solutions for employers can also be implemented here.
As pilot projects, we are implementing the digital job fair twice for talents in the Aachen region in June 2020 - with regional and national employers, once as an Apprentices fair (June 17) and once as a university fair (June 24).
