ecruiting events are events where fresh graduates or job seekers interact with recruiters or companies. Career or job fairs are a popular way for Human Resource (HR) agencies to connect companies and job seekers. Such fairs are conventionally physical and have been preferred by HR agencies. But changing times call for a creative approach.
Agencies are gradually looking at virtual options for hosting recruiting events. From a novelty, virtual recruiting events are now becoming a way of life and for good reasons.
So, what are the advantages of a virtual recruiting event?
- Saves time and money for all parties concerned
- A global reach because there is no physical constraint
- The event can extend for more than a day thus attracting more candidates.
- Data analytics can be used to measure the success of the event.
The most significant advantage of using a virtual platform is that a virtual recruiting event does not need to be limited to a job fair. There are many other formats of hosting recruiting events. Hosting different types of events helps in meeting the needs of different clients and also supports an HR agency forge better relations with their clients.

Recruiting events that can be hosted on Airmeet
“Ask Me Anything” event: These events can be organised specifically between a company and job aspirants. In such events, one representative of the organisation (mid-senior or senior leader) gets on a video chat with aspirants. They can ask the organisational representative anything about the company. From work culture, job descriptions, employee benefits, the scope for growth, aspirants can ask any question. For better flow, you can moderate such an event.
Increasingly organisations are signing up for AMA’s because they come across as a transparent organisation. AMA’s can be tailored to meet the needs of a particular organisation. Also, with Airmeet’s chat and video conferencing features, these can be hosted with ease on the platform.
Fireside chats: A fireside chat is a moderated chat with more than one speaker. You could organise an industry-specific fireside chat event. Invite a panel of experts for the talk, and the moderator can ask them specific questions about the industry.
These questions could talk about current opportunities, skill sets needed, how aspirants can upgrade their skills etc. This event needs some planning and preparation. But if well planned these events can be extremely popular as they are casual and value-driven. The advantage of hosting a fireside chat with industry experts is that job aspirants have a better understanding of the industry and its ways of working.
Hackathons: Hackathons are increasingly gaining popularity among tech companies. They use these events to find the best fit for their organisation. In a hackathon, people of different skill sets come together to solve pre-decided challengers and come up with innovative solutions to solve the same.
