Online job fairs can help you find job opportunities from the comfort of your home.
"An online job fair, also known as a virtual job fair or electronic job fair, is an online version of a traditional job fair. They allow employers and job seekers to meet and discuss employment opportunities by way of specialised websites. Like a traditional job fair, online job fairs are live, fully interactive, and held at specific times. (~Wikipedia)"
This new trend in the employment arena open many opportunities for job seekers.
Whereas traditionally you might have been limited to job interviews landed in the traditional method, virtual career fairs open up unlimited doors to meet and connect with potential employers.
All you need to do is search for online job fairs and then sign up online and attend them.
You don't need permission from employers to attend the interviews and are not limited by location.
As an example, you can search for career fairs on the National Career Fairs website and Global Careers Fair website which are databases of online job fair events.
The benefits of attending such career fairs are many.
At best, you can land your dream regular or remote job.
Even if you don't get a job right away, you'll have your details shared with potential employers who might be interested in hiring you in the future.
What's more, you'll get a sense of control over your circumstances. You'll know that, even with the pandemic and lockdowns, there are things you can do to get your dream job.
