The Job Network is rolling out a virtual job fair platform designed to introduce employers and job candidates in real-time events.

Called Virtual Job Fare (VJF), the platform allows employers to set up accounts and post available jobs on the site, as well as update company information. Employers receive a “virtual booth” in which all the company’s job openings appear. The booth supports video, voice, chat and phone. Candidates register prior to the event. During the designated time, both parties can meet and greet in real time. A typical virtual job fair would include about 30 employers, each with its own booth, The Job Network says. The VJF can have a geographic focus or an industry-specific focus, such as teaching or health care.
