4 Reasons Your Company Should Participate in a Virtual Career Fair

There are many benefits for companies who choose to take part in a career fair, such as the virtual one being jointly hosted by Toronto School of Management (TSoM) and Niagara College – Toronto (NCT) on February 10, 2pm-5pm EST.

Participating companies will have the opportunity to virtually interact with students from in-demand areas such as Business, Hospitality and Tourism, Cybersecurity, Digital Marketing, Data Analytics and Accounting.

Our students come from all over the world, bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and experience. A virtual fair allows you to meet driven and qualified candidates, easily and efficiently. Here are five reasons why you’ll want to attend:

1. Save Money and Time

Attending a virtual fair is an easy way to save your company money, while still enjoying all the benefits a career fair has to offer. Save on travel expenses such as flights, meals, and hotel, as well as on marketing materials, like banners and promotional items. Not only will attending a virtual fair save your company money, it will also save you and your employees the equally valuable – if not more so – resource of time.

2. Convenience

Attend NCT- TSoM’s virtual affair from the comfort of your own home or office. It’s convenient, accessible and there are limited logistics involved. Avoid the burden of transporting your materials to and from the fair and setting up and down your physical booth (as an added feature, our NCT/TSoM fair will offer fully customizable virtual booths for your business – see #4 below!). Access and connect with a major pool of talent, all from the comfort of your own home. Have multiple conversations with job seekers and scan quality applicants quickly and efficiently.

3. Free Promotion/Awareness for your Brand

As mentioned above, company and participants are able to customize their own virtual recruitment booth, which allows for maximum brand exposure to interested candidates. Generate greater interest in your business by partaking in the Information Session with students, where information about companies and their upcoming opportunities will be shared. Your virtual booth is easy to “set up” and our staff will be on hand to assist with any technical issues. Leave potential prospect with a meaningful and lasting impression of your company!

4. Build Your Talent Pipeline

Virtual fairs allow you to connect with a wider pool of talented applicants. Your company is also available to capture the data of upcoming talent, which allows for easier contact and follow-up for future roles. Through this virtual event, your company can conveniently recruit qualified TSoM and NCT candidates for internships and part-time or full-time positions to address all your staffing needs. Our students are dedicated, qualified and eager to put their unique skills and talents to work for you and your business!

See you at the fair!
