Visitors can choose to continuously apply for the vacancies that are registered on the event page. They can also choose to only participate in the program that is broadcast during the event day and then apply for the vacancies that have been published.
If your organization consists of several departments that want to participate in our job fair, we recommend that each department registers its own account. This way, each department is exposed separately, and it becomes easier to handle applications. In addition, each department receives interview planning tools and chat channels that are their own.
To achieve a good result with your recruitment, we recommend that the ads are published as soon as possible and are in English. In the advertisement, you have the opportunity to refer applicants to your own career page but note that our platform is built on the basis that applicants must apply for the services through the platform, which means that the vast majority do so. Therefore, it is important that you continuously go in and look through your ads to find the candidates. Video: https://youtu.be/WDIyUr68hsQ
Book online interviews:
You can book and hold interviews between 16th and 18th February from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. CET (10-19 Finnish time) with candidates who have applied for vacancies. The interview tool is integrated into the platform. You do this by booking 30-minute interviews (so-called "slots"). You can access it from your "Dashboard".
Chat with candidates during the event day:
It is possible to chat with jobseekers on the event day using the event platform.
If you are unable to chat the entire day, then add in your company presentation the time you are available for chats during the event day.
Record a short film in English
We recommend that you record a promotional film where you inform about your organization, your vacancies and how candidates can contact you. We broadcast the film during the event day. In this way, you reach everyone who participates, even those who may have missed your published vacancies.
NOTE! The film shouldn’t be longer than 5 minutes and if your movie is in your native language, it needs to be subtitled in English.
