CREATE AN ACCOUNT

You can begin to look through the employers that will be attending the virtual fair without needing to create an account. When you're ready to start scheduling meetings, you will need to create an account and build your profile. Make sure you build a complete profile that includes your CV/resume and other relevant information. This is the profile employers will see when you book meetings with them, so you want to make a good impression!

Watch the video below to see how to create your account:

SCHEDULING MEETINGS

As you browse the employers who will be at the virtual fair, you can schedule meetings to meet with them virtually.

Tap on the employer you would like to meet with and then tap 'Meetings' to see the schedules they have available

1.

Employers may have multiple schedules; select the schedule that you're interested in

2.

Choose a time that works for you, and hit 'YES' to book the meeting time

3.

If you are not signed in, you will be prompted to sign in. If you have not yet created an account, you must do so at this stage in order to book meetings.

 

The system will not allow you to double-book yourself, nor to book back-to-back meetings. This is so that you have a buffer window in case one of your meetings overruns.

 

Don't forget, meetings are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis, so if there is an employer you want to meet with, don't wait to book a meeting with them!

For Schedules Using Career Fair Plus's in-built Video Meeting Rooms

IMPORTANT: If the interaction type says CF Plus Video Room, the meeting will take place on our integrated video meeting platform. In this case, please click "Join Meeting" from one of your scheduled meetings and test that your video and microphone are working. You may need to grant/request permissions if it is the first time you are using the platform.

If you have issues, please contact support@careerfairplus.com

For Schedules Without Career Fair Plus's in-built Video Meeting Rooms

Make sure you check the interaction type so that you know what to expect on the day of the fair, whether it's a phone call or an external link (Zoom, Skype, etc). If there are additional instructions provided on the schedule for candidates, these might give further details about how you can expect the recruiter to contact you.

NOTE: You will receive an email the day before the fair with reminders about your upcoming meetings, complete with links to the video meeting rooms for your meetings. If a recruiter makes any changes from the time of that email, the platform will have the most up-to-date information.
