For Schedules using Career Fair Plus's built-in Video Meeting Rooms

ALSO IMPORTANT: Students will begin booking appointments on September 9th

Complete these 3 quick steps to ensure you're all set up for maximum success before the fair!

  1. Go to https://app.careerfairplus.com/ to login to your account and view your appointments

  2. Feel free to browse the profiles and resumes of the candidates that have scheduled times to speak with you

  3. If you want to block off any times that are still available, to avoid them being booked before the scheduling window closes, you can do this by clicking on 'Manage Schedule' and then 'Edit Time Slots' to block off any open time slots
  1. Once the scheduling window has closed, your appointment schedule will not change. You can click Download Appointments if you wish to export your appointments to an excel spreadsheet

  2. If you chose to download the Career Fair Plus app, you can use it alongside the desktop version to add private notes and/or ratings for your candidates, which you can then export at the end of the fair (video). The app also has an integrated timer to help you stay on track.

Can I use a web browser to access Career Fair Plus?

Yes. Once you have received an invite link to the platform, you can view and manage your schedule, view profiles of students that have made appointments with you, as well as conduct video meetings all through your browser. If you wish to make private notes about candidates directly onto their profiles, you will need to download the app.

 

I didn't receive an email invitation from Career Fair Plus, what do I do?

Please start by checking your spam or junk folder. If you still have not received it, please contact your fair organizer for a new link. Please note, these are single-use links, and must be opened in Chrome or Firefox.

 

I received a link to create an account, but it has expired. Where can I get a new one?

Please reach out to your fair organizer to invite you to create an account on our platform. Please note, these are single-use links, and must be opened in Chrome or Firefox.

 

What data will be available to me after the fair? How long will it be available?

You will have access to the profiles of any students that booked on schedules associated with your company only. This will be available as long as the fair is active in our platform, which is up to the fair organizer.

 

Will I be able to see the candidates' resumes before the fair?

You will be able to see the resumes and profiles of any candidates that have booked meetings on schedules associated with your company. You will not be able to see any details of candidates that have not scheduled a time to speak with your company.

 

My schedule is utilizing Career Fair Plus's inbuilt video meeting rooms. Is there an audio-only option so I don't have to use my camera?

You may choose to turn your camera off in our video meeting rooms and communicate via audio only. You may also request your fair organizer to change the interaction type of your schedule if you prefer to reach out to candidates via phone calls, or a different platform.

 

How do I contact the candidates/students that have made appointments with me?

You will have access to candidate details, including email addresses and phone numbers from your Schedule dashboard.

 

I would like to share my schedule with my colleague(s). What is the best way to do this?

We typically recommend recruiters each having their own schedule, and then modifying their availability if they are splitting the day up with other colleagues. For example Recruiter A only has availability from 10am to 12pm, and Recruiter B only has availability from 12pm to 2pm. However, in the event this decision is made very close to the Fair day, and there is not enough time to reconfigure the appointments, or in the case that you wish to have additional recruiters present on the same schedule, you can request your Fair Organizer to add your colleagues on as additional recruiters. They will then receive an email invitation to create a profile on our platform, and once they do so, they will have access to all schedules associated with your company, as well as the links to the video meeting rooms.

 

What do I do if I experience technical difficulties just as I am meant to connect with a candidate?

To begin with, always pre-test the platform in advance of the virtual fair; give your camera and microphone the relevant access permissions, and even test the user experience by sending the room link to a colleague or friend. However, even if you have pre-tested, we recommend having a contingency plan just for worst-case scenarios. This can be anything that works for you, but keep it simple: it might just mean a phone call to the candidate to connect.

 

What should I do if I have technical difficulties during the fair?

For any technical questions, please reach out to us at support@careerfairplus.com
