A virtual Job Fair – information for employers

Live Job Fair : 12th July until 11th September.

Many virtual job fairs are well considered in principle but are often only accessible or visible for a few hours or a day. Whilst any exposure is valuable, this may not be enough to support job seekers and employers particularly as furlough benefit schemes etc. change in the coming weeks. 

The Daily Echo virtual Job Fair will be the first of its kind in terms of its scale, presence and reach. They have committed significant resource and editorial backing for this project which will provide local employers an unprecedented and *free (*free for 4 weeks and a small charge after that if they wish another 4 weeks) access to the Daily Echo audience, which delivers reach across print and online of 9 out of 10 adults.

How the virtual fair will work:

·         Up to 30 employers will have an opportunity to feature their vacancies for a 4 week period in an dedicated and highly visible area of the Daily Echo website, accessed via a number of ways.

·         Each business will have their company brand, contact details and headline job title which then links through to a short video (which they can do on a smart phone) which outlines the job and the company ethos – very much bringing the piece to life.

·         The virtual fair will be accessible from a prominent display ad on the home and news page which will remain fixed for the duration and a link on the jobs page itself. By keeping the message visible they can attract more job seekers (active and passive) and make it easier to signpost.

·         They will also use Facebook each week during the course of the campaign to showcase specific companies and their respective vacancies

The Daily Echo is also making space for partners and providers who are in a position to provide free services to include CV writing and career advice.
