Every school and organization is different with students that have unique needs. Career Services Offices often want to convey information that's specific to their fairs and relevant to their students which can be difficult in a "one size fits all" platform. Enter Career Fair Plus and supplemental imports! All of our customers that also use Handshake, know that we can use Direct Connect to pull in relevant fair data. What only a few also know is that we can import supplemental data that schools collect through survey questions as a part of employer registration. Handshake allows CSOs to collect custom data, but does not provide a way to easily share that data with students. Career Fair Plus makes it easy to setup custom fields and filters for many types of data. Four of the most common examples and why they are important are below.
With any software purchase, cost is always a concern and Career Fair Plus is no different. We understand that Career Services Offices (CSOs) and other fair organizers don’t have unlimited budget.
