Video Chat Career Fair Registration
Jobs Connected hosts public career fairs as well as private career fairs. For public fairs, Jobs Connected may request that users register with Jobs Connected in order to determine the resources and staff required for the event.
For private events (such as events for a particular college or university), Jobs Connected asks its partner institution(s) whether or not registration for a career fair is desired. Partner institutions tend to be colleges and universities, but are not limited to colleges and universities and can be companies and other entities as well. If partner institution(s) desire participants to register for the event, only information that is necessary and/or requested by partner institutions is asked for upon registration. Typical registration includes name and email, but other information can be requested at the desire of a partner institution. If a partner institution desires that job seekers be able to apply for job positions through www.jobsconnected.com, then job seekers and employers must make a Jobs Connected account. Job seekers apply for jobs using their Jobs Connected Account and employers post positions and receive applications through their Jobs Connected account.
