What is the required equipment?

We can only recommend you use a computer with at least a camera / webcam and a microphone, with an efficient internet access. You can also have headphones or earphones for everyone’s comfort. You can access the platform with your cell phone but it is really less practical.

Please note: the solution is compatible with only 4 browsers: Google Chrome, Edge – only the Chromium version – Firefox and Safari.

If you are using an iPhone, only Safari works, not Google Chrome.


What should I do if I do not have any internet access?

Having an internet access is a prerequisite to participate in this virtual evening. If you do not have internet access, you can always go to a friend’s or family member’s house, a cybercafé, a university library or an open space.

Our advice: make sure to anticipate or reserve a computer if it is necessary. You can take headphones or earphones with you to feel more at ease during your interviews – without people around you listening the whole conversation.

After connecting to the website, you will be able to search using categories or key words (namely desired position, company, or type of contract, for instance) and you will see several professional opportunities! Then, join a virtual waiting line and wait to be contacted by the recruiter when he / she is available. Since we are in a generous mood… you will be able to join 3 lines at the same time! What a wonderful feature! Thanks to this, you would not have to wait your turn in front of one specific stand before visiting other companies!


What happens when I connect to this virtual evening?

Once logged into to the virtual evening, you will be able to see all the present companies. Do not hesitate to use some keywords – sought position, company, or type of contract, for instance – to simplify your job search. You can also find the Moovijob stand for any question related to the organization of the virtual evening.

There will be a colored icon to tell you if there is little, some, or a lot of waiting for each stand.

Then, you can click on the company’s logo you are interested in. You will see how many candidates are already there and your average waiting time. You will then be able to join a virtual line, possibly choose the recruiter you would like to meet, and wait for him/her to contact you when he/she is available.

You will also have the opportunity to join 3 virtual lines at the same time and will not have to wait your turn in front of one specific stand before visiting other companies!


When should I connect to this virtual evening?

One of the many advantages of a virtual event is that you can log in and participate whenever you want, take a break, and come back without having to worry about the travel time.

Just keep in mind that the virtual evening ends officially at 10:00 pm and some recruiters may start to leave around 09:30 pm.


How will the virtual meetings take place?

The meetings will take place as if they were face-to-face… but with screens in between! When the recruiter is ready – and you too! – to virtually meet you, a video conversation will start. If you do not have a webcam, do not panic! You will be able to start an audio conversation with the recruiter.


Is there any limited number of interviews for each person?

There will be no limited number of meetings per person. You will then have the opportunity contact as many companies as possible in one evening!


How do I send my CV to a company I am interested in?

You should upload your CV while creating your profile for this virtual event. The recruiter will then have direct access to it when the virtual meeting starts.

Do not hesitate to ask the recruiter his/her professional email address if you want to send your CV right after the call or contact him/her a little latter.

 

After the event:

How can I maximize my chances of being contacted again after the evening?

If we can give you a little piece of advice: contact the recruiter instead of waiting an answer!

If you feel that the meeting went especially well with a specific recruiter, do not hesitate to ask his/her professional email address to contact him/her after.

If you do not receive any an answer, you can send an email once again after a few days to prove your motivation.


Why do recruiters ask me to additionally register on their career site?

A recruiter may sometimes ask you to register on the company’s career site at the end of a call to facilitate the recruitment and selection process via their IT tool.

Many HR departments have their own information processing systems that allow them to manage the candidates according to their own criteria! Judging by the number of candidates who are recruited thanks to recruitment evenings, the effort is worth it.
