“What new career fair technology am I missing?”
College career services around the country are embracing the latest and greatest application in career fair organization - Career Fair Plus! Institutions including the University of South Florida and Michigan Tech are putting together career fairs easier than ever by using the Career Fair Plus mobile application.
How Career Fair Plus Can Transform Career Fair Planning
Take the stress out of putting on a career fair with with our robust and easy-to-use mobile application. Some of the most common mistakes made by career fair organizers are:
- Forgetting to give an employer an assignment
- Assigning more than one employer to a booth
- Assigning an employer to a non-existent booth
- Mis-numbering booths on the map
The old way of hosting fairs (ink and paper) made successfully dealing with these problems on the day of the fair a near impossibility. With Career Fair Plus, you can take these easily-made mistakes out of the equation. The application allows career services employees to quickly see where employers have been assigned and where booths are still available.
Fair organizers can use their existing list of employers in the app and upload a digital image of the map. Using the app, simply click on an employer and then click on a booth hotspot to assign. One of the most exciting, and time-saving, features is “Auto Assign” which automatically assigns any employers without an assignment to an open booth and prevents any of the previously mentioned mistakes from happening.
Career Fair Plus also offers career fair insights that can improve your success rate. Data like the best month, day, and times to host a career fair can help ensure that you plan a prosperous fair.
