Virtual Online Job Fairs: The Perfect Solution for Your Job Search in 2020

Virtual Online Job Fairs

The COVID-19 pandemic was certainly something that shook up the economy since the beginning of 2020. With millions of people going on unemployment due to the virus and the majority of businesses migrating to digital operations, it is safe to say people are taking extra cautionary measures as society starts entering into the reopening phases. But with the reopening of business also comes the inevitable fact that millions are going to need jobs again. With this fact, virtual online job fairs are the prime solution to utilize for the job searching process. Fortunately, the contemporary and need I say safest way to meet with employers is through a virtual online job fair.

What Are Virtual Job Fairs?

It is no secret that traditional in person job fairs have been around for years to help people with their job search. With the rise of the digital age, there is a new, more effective way to attend those fairs to scope out opportunities. Virtual job fairs are structured entirely online, allowing you to converse with potential employers from all across the country without you needing to leave your home, perfect for complying with social distancing guidelines. They are easy to attend, are hassle-free and the ideal way for you to get yourself back into the workforce in 2020 and 2021 in a safe way.

The Top Benefits of Attending Virtual Online Job Fairs

Though I touched upon it a bit above, there are some incredible benefits that come with attending an online job fair. For instance, you never have to worry about travel or travel expenses going this route. There is no running around an airport, traffic jams on the highway, or getting home late because of the distances from the physical location. And you do not incur parking fees! All of that can be avoided completely. Some other pros include:

  • You can choose who to chat with: Unlike in-person fairs where you need to wander around the venue to seek out an opportunity, virtual job fairs allow you to see the virtual exhibit of all the booths and their descriptions before entering in. This gives you a pre-screening advantage to know for sure if you want to engage or not with that employer.
  • Fewer Distractions: Typical job fairs are noisy, crowded, and ultimately distracting when you are trying to have a serious conversation with a recruiter or a potential employer. With online, you can have those one-on-one, obstacle-free conversations with respected people via video or text, without worry that you will lose your train of thought with the chaos around you.
  • It is Safer: COVID-19 is still a cause of concern in society today. There is still no vaccine out yet, and every day the stats are still rising on confirmed cases. But, despite that, you still need money to live. Taking the online path is the best way to keep your distance from others during this uncertain time and still work towards finding your ideal job.


Conclusion

Virtual job fairs play a fundamental role in job searching and should be leveraged during the unsteady times of 2020 and beyond. They are much less time consuming, cheaper and the contemporary way to meet and ultimately be hired by employers. Remember, even with the pandemic, the business of life still goes on.

So, if you are someone looking for a job right now, don’t underestimate the power of online job fairs. You will be connected with matching employers from all across your city, state and the country and do so from the comfort of your home. In the end, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose by attending them.

Latcareers.com to host 14th Annual Bilingual and Diversity Career Fair in Denver October 12, 2017

Amazon and many employers to recruit Bilingual and Diverse job seekers at annual career fair in Denver

The 14th annual Bilingual and Diversity Career Fair is set to take place in Denver, Colorado on October 12, 2017.  The event is hosted by leading bilingual and diversity job board and career fair company, Latcareers.com.  The annual niche career fair attracts hundreds of local career seekers and top employers from the business and Industry, government, Education and the non-profit sector.

Denver has one of the lowest jobless rates in the country at 2.4 percent vs. 4.3 percent nationally as updated by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment in June 2017.   With such a low unemployment rate, employers in all industries are struggling to reach career seekers and fill their open career opportunities.   One of the hardest labor pools to tap is Bilingual job seekers in the Denver area.  Bilingual career seekers are sought after and employers are providing strong career benefit packages to lure this hard to recruit talent.   Some employers are responding by increasing pay and offering sign on bonuses in order to recruit bilingual talent.

The small available labor pool in Denver reflects the potential strength of the local economy and also mirrors the challenges that employers are experiencing nationwide to recruit Bilingual career seekers.   With such a high demand for this niche talent pool, employers including Amazon, Liberty Mutual, Prudential, Walgreens and many others are partnering with Latcareers.com to recruit at our bilingual and diversity career fairs in Denver and nationwide.  “We strategically partner with our clients to execute their diversity employment strategies and to provide them a solution in recruiting Bilingual career seekers” states Rubicela Acosta, CEO Latcareers.com

Employers including Amazon, Walgreens, Federal Reserve, SR Originals, Aflac, Devry, Liberty Mutual, Verizon Wireless, Macy’s and many others will be recruiting at this event.  Career seekers are encouraged to register to attend the career fair and to dress for interviews and bring resumes with them to the event.   The career fair is free to all job seekers.  All job seekers are invited to attend.

To register career seekers must visit www.latcareers.com and upload their resume.

Amazing Teacher Jobs Growth are in Bilingual Education

Our world is evolving. Advances in technology are bringing the corners of the world together and we need bilingual teachers more than ever! Teacher jobs are focusing more on educators that are multi-lingual. Schools are recruiting a greater number of educators with multiple language skills, expanding the field of education to include a broader knowledge base and trying to bridge the gaps in communication that emerge when people from diverse cultures are trying to exchange ideas.

It has long been difficult to merge cultures in the classrooms because there were simply not enough teachers grounded in more than one culture. Technology has taken many families to foreign shores and they want to learn about their new home. Now schools had to address a growing, knowledge thirsty community of many lifestyles and they needed staff with the same. The search was on for a new generation of educators with a broader set of skills. The question now being asked more frequently is, “How do we meet the needs of so many with so few?”

Bilingual Spanish teacher jobs are in great demand these days. Latino populations in this country have been steadily rising, and children speaking more than one language in the house are becoming more prevalent. Schools have realized that having teachers knowledgeable about cultural diversity, from actually having lived it, would be a benefit to everyone.

The need for bilingual teachers was increasing and, here in the United States, students began to see ESL (English as Second Language) classes offered in higher education institutions and a surge in Bilingual teacher recruitment began to rise. The ability to offer a wider range of classes to a broader section of people helps schools to improve their student base and quality of instruction. Language immersion classes are also starting to proliferate, but without the teachers to pass along this knowledge, the number of offerings suffers.

Some countries are taking steps to bring talent to where they need it. Programs offered from many countries are asking people to travel and teach their native language! The Chinese government is recruiting foreign language teachers and offering living quarters and a stipend for them to come teach in China. I know a young man preparing for his teaching job in China, and he knows no Chinese. It was not a prerequisite that he know how to speak Chinese! They see the need for linguistic diversity! The nephew’s basic needs of shelter and food are no longer an issue and he only has to focus on teaching. This is only one example of the offerings that await a prospective educator willing to travel to teach.

A bilingual teacher has many exciting opportunities available these days. Schools are actively recruiting bilingual teachers, expanding their curriculum to accommodate the growing number of multi-lingual students and enticing educators from afar to travel in exchange for housing and expenses! If you have skills in more than one language and a desire to share that knowledge, you owe yourself a look at all possibilities.
