- Prepare for the interview(s)
In order to better prepare, you should thoroughly research available information on the participating companies, their main projects and recruitment needs. Select the companies you want to approach, or who have invited you for an interview, identify the questions you may want to ask and try to anticipate possible questions from the employer.
A cared personal look is important (even if the interview is online) and a good level of English combined with a positive attitude, will prove highly beneficial.
Please make sure, ahead of the day of online interview, you have access to:
- PC, laptop, tablet / iPad or another mobile device plus a headset with a microphone and a webcam;
- a stable internet connection;
- a Skype account (it will be a major plus).
If you don’t have a Skype account, you can still hold the meeting via the chat system available on the event website. If you have an interview time slot confirmed – just contact your employer at the agreed time via live chat available on the event’s website.
- Take advantage of the programme
You should also try to take full advantage of the program to be streamed on the event day. Select the presentations of interest to you, watch and interact via the open chat.
- If you don't have any pre-set interviews...
On the event day, you can still make exploratory contacts with employers and get advice with info points on different services supporting your job search or mobility project by joining the one-to-one Live Chat.
- If you're not a EU/EEA or Swiss citizen...
Please bear in mind that, while you may participate in this event and use the www.europeanjobdays.eu platform for job search and meeting employers, you will still have additional legal obligations and administrative procedures to go through to get access to the European labour market.
We advise you to check beforehand for additional information:
- the basic EU labour market accessing principles for different non-EU country nationals,
- the EU Immigration Portal,
You should also be aware that employers may decide not to go through your application, due to the expected length of immigration procedures related to your hiring.
- Still having some doubts?
We look forward to meeting you online on October 10th and wish you a very successful event!
Information for Exhibitors
By now you should already have a username and a password to access the europeanjobdays.eu platform. If for some reason you don’t, please get in touch with us firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can check the situation. You may as well recover your password here, as long as you remember your username or the e-mail you used to register. To make the best out of your participation, you should now:
Improve your company profile
This profile is your public introduction to potential applicants. It should reflect what your main activities and projects are, as well as your organisation’s mission, values and HR policy, ideally in English.
If you haven’t done so yet, it is now time to add your logo, your web and social media accounts – and, if you have one available on YouTube or Vimeo, also add an introductory video (ideally recruitment-focused), in order to make the profile more appealing.
No vacancies published yet?
If you haven’t done this yet, publish them on the platform as soon as possible, if you want to get a number of applications ahead of the event.
Fill in the maximum amount information possible in the fields about languages, education, and skills, in order to better help the jobseekers find your vacancies in their searches.
If participants apply to your vacancies before the event, you can pre-select a few applicants for interviews and better organise your participation on the day – also allowing the jobseekers to better prepare for the interview.
Watch the videos:
(BEWARE THAT... even though the event is aimed at EU/EEA citizens, you will surely get some applications from third country nationals. It is up to you to decide whether to accept or discard them, bearing in mind the international recruitment procedures ongoing in your country).
Go through your applicants & invite them for interviews
Jobseekers interested in your vacancies are applying through the platform. In order to browse their CVs, once logged in, go to Job Applications / Interviews in your dashboard. Click on the jobseeker’s name, go through the profile, check the attached CV or LinkedIn profile. If it matches your requirements, you can invite him/her for an online or onsite interview on September 17th.
You can pre-define your availability for interviews under Set interview timeslots. By default, interview slots last 30 minutes.
The applicants you invite for an interview will then choose the most suitable slot for them, out of those you (still) have available. Your schedule is automatically updated as applicants confirm their attendance.
On the event day, check and download your interview agenda from Applications / Interviews in your dashboard to know who you will be meeting. You can choose to use either Netop (the Chat tool associated with the platform) or Skype (if both you and your candidate have a regular Skype account):
- if the interview is conducted via the Netop Chat, make sure you’re logged in, available and with the audio and video options on at the scheduled time; wait for the jobseeker’s contact;
- if it is on Skype, you should contact the jobseeker by clicking on the Skype button in your interview schedule in the platform.
Our Helpdesk will be online all day to help you and candidates with interview management whenever needed.
If you don’t have pre-booked interviews…
On the day, you can also make exploratory one-to-one contact with jobseekers (just like if you were at a stand) by joining the Netop Chat.
Learn how to use it under Access online chat in your Dashboard (once logged in).
You need a specific account for this. By default, we create an account for every participating exhibitor registered for the event – and you should receive an e-mail with your access data and some testing recommendations 3 days before the event at the latest.
Still have questions?
We look forward to working with you to make your participation a success!
