The global spread of COVID-19 in early 2020 has been reshuffling the cards in the event industry. Regarding the many events postponed or even cancelled in Luxembourg – and across Europe –choosing an innovative solution which allows secure meetings – namely digital – is important for event planners!
The Moovijob team has recently decided to hold all its recruitment events and to 100% virtualize them in 2020. Are you still skeptical? This article is for you! 👇
But first, what is a virtual event?
A virtual recruitment fair or evening – as its name suggests – takes fully place remotely through an internet access and a powerful IT solution allowing you to manage video chat and phone conversations while staying at home! You will then have the opportunity to participate in the event, look for a job / training course / internship and even attend a conference as if you were there thanks to this tool.
The reasons why you should participate:
There’s a long list of advantages of such an event – as you may imagine – so here you have some of them:
- Participate from where you want, whenever you want
While the virtual events still have the same timetable in most cases, the main difference between a physical event and a virtual one is that you do not have to travel to the location of the event.
You can meet recruiters directly from your living room, kitchen, bedroom or even your holiday destination, why not! No more transport constraints, you can participate in a virtual event whenever you want without worrying about the time of your next bus or train.
- Discuss with the recruiters in all serenity…
By participating in an event directly from home, you will enjoy a quiet and comfortable place without the characteristic hubbub of job fairs. You will also avoid some curious ears of other candidates that can make you feel uncomfortable while talking with a recruiter.
Thanks to the video call, you can stay 100% focused on your interview and give the best of yourself during this important interaction.
- And in complete safety!
No need for exchanging CVs, cover letters or other goodies thanks to the virtual tool. You will no longer need to move, shake hands or touch potentially contaminated objects or even wear a mask. Your safety is our priority!
- Easily find the companies you are interested in
Thanks to an integrated search engine, you will have the opportunity to quickly find the virtual stand of the company you are interested in. You will then be able to chat with recruiters in just a few clicks.
- Save money
You will make small – or sometimes major! – economies over the day because you will not have to pay for transport, catering, parking, and so on. The only prerequisite? An efficient internet access!
In fact, more than 80% of European homes have an internet access – and it is the case for 90% in France and Luxembourg. But, if this is not the case for you, you can always go to a friend’s or family member’s house, a cybercafé or an open space, for instance.
- Join 3 virtual lines at the same time
Thanks to our innovative tool, you will be able to join up to 3 different virtual lines at the same time! This will increase your chances of meeting a maximum of recruiters in a single day or evening! It will also optimize your time by visiting several stands at the same time.
- Discover exclusive information about the companies present
You will discover exclusive and important information about the present companies – such as presentation posters, photos, videos, and obviously job offers – thanks to a system of virtual stands !
Everything was designed to help you learn more about the company before getting an interview. You will then use this important information to impress the recruiter thanks to your knowledge.
