Planning and Managing Recruitment Event with Digital Tools
Planning for an event is important and challenging but what about planning for a successful one?
The Vital Role of Recruitment Event For job seekers, having to expend energy on scrolling through job listing after job listing, trying to match the right skill set to the role and managing both emotions and expectations can appear daunting. The process of looking for a job is thus deemed as one of the most stressful events in life, as quoted from Smallbizgenius, where 73% of job seekers have agreed on this stance. Hence this creates a need for a more direct approach to the process of job searching and this can be achieved through Recruitment events such as Talent Heist. For one, they serve as a great channel to learn about the industry of interest. Secondly, face to face interaction will engage job seekers, helping them understand what the role encompasses and possibly land a job offer. But what exactly are Recruitment events and what value do they bring?
Generally, a Recruitment event is a centralised platform where organisations, both large and small, reach out and potentially hire talents within a single venue. The convenience of having a pool of organisations concentrated together motivates job seekers to attend such events, allowing both parties to save considerable amount of time by providing organisations the opportunity to meet multiple candidates and vice versa.
Recruitment events also provide several pull factors on top of helping job seekers secure a job:
Networking opportunities Equipping of relevant soft skills (Seminars and lectures on how to land a job, learn interview skills)
Keeping updated on current job opportunities (learn what type of job they offer and if they have any internships available)
Identifying necessary competencies (Identify what role they are more suited for)
Familiarisation of industries
Recruitment Event and Digital Tools With the aforementioned benefits comes extensive planning, strategizing, managing of internal and external stakeholders, aligning of goals as well as execution. Any mishandling of the above factors may compromise the success of the fair, not to mention unforeseen circumstances that may incur unnecessary cost.
Thus, having direct access to a comprehensive suite of event planning tools which include professional advice, database of target audience as well as data analysis for research and future planning lies at the heart of every successful event. As with any event, networking and interactions are at the core, therefore it is necessary to also have a tool to aid in managing meetings and interactions.
The other end of the spectrum is of course not neglected, as having a concise overview of the exhibitors that will be present prior to the event plays an equally important role for event participants. Hence, a tool aid that allows participants to plan schedules, visit exhibition areas, workshops and follow stage program flows and additionally, track post event activities such as viewing of statistics, checking of meeting notes and following up with new leads acquired from the event would simply be essential for participants to make the most out of any recruitment event.
