As we are approaching the end of year, we are reviewing what we have done or achieved this year. Many of us spend December of every year planning ahead, hoping to be more efficient and productive next year.

Unlike any other years, 2020 has been a rather interesting year for all of us. COVID-19 hit us hard, and is still with us (for way longer than we expected it to be). Classes are online and people are working from home. Everyone was rushed into this, and hopefully, after reading this article, you can wrap up this year nicely and get…

Earlier this year, many companies, organizations and educational institutions started researching alternatives for their in-person events in a hurry. Gatherings of people became far more dangerous than it ever was, and it continues to be.

According to the statistics report published by Bizzabo, 57% of event marketers decided to cancel their events due to COVID-19. In other words, that means, 57% of opportunities wasted. On the other hand, 87% of the world’s leading event organizers decided to shift their focus and host virtual events in 2020.

At least for the foreseeable future, we won’t be able to go back to…

Campus recruiting has gone virtual and almost all universities are running career fairs online to continuously engage the employer partners in hiring their students. While many employers have been adapting fast by attending those career fairs online, some other companies and organizations are still getting used to the process and to the various platforms that the events are running on.

In the fall 2020 semester, 1,000+ companies and recruiters joined to exhibit various virtual career fairs on Highre. Through those events…

Since COVID-19 outbreak, our lives have changed dramatically. It’s been difficult to organize gatherings, go to classes in person, participate in different activities and events. Remote working and studying have become a new norm, and they are here to stay.

It became harder than ever to network or go for a coffee with your mentors to talk about your careers, or to get a sense of direction. You are not alone in this. Most of your schools are working extremely hard to provide a seamless higher education experience for you. We are now in the era of virtual recruiting and…

Going to crowded event vs Comfortable home

A few years ago, or actually, a few months ago, when physical career fairs were still a thing, we rarely got to speak about the benefits of virtual career fairs or understand what they are about. People were used to talking to recruiters and submitting their resumes in person. However, that has changed now.

As a student and as a recruiter, it was very tiring to drive to the event venue, to get bombarded with multiple candidates coming up to you at the same time (as a recruiter) and to stand in the queue to get to say hello to…

What is virtual career fair?

As a Marketing Lead, it was always a struggle trying to explain what virtual career fair is. I would meet up with my friends and tell them that I work for a virtual career fair platform company, and they would be like “oh cool, what is that?” Then, I would explain, “you know, we all have been to super crowded career fairs or job fairs of some sort. We would print out a bunch of CVs, queue up to meet one recruiter, trying to get a job. With virtual career fairs you don’t need to do that. You sit down…
