Online career fairs are a quick and easy way to stand out from the hundreds of other applicants and really get an employer's attention. But without the right preparation, it can turn into a race against the clock to relay your professional value while also getting useful information about the company's career prospects.

Have you ever wondered what happens to your application, after you submit to a job? What do hiring managers and recruiters do with all of the applications? Why do I never hear back from the business I just applied to?
The goal of this past webinar was to help our job seekers understand the process of what happens to their applications, identify the best positions to apply to, understand how a recruiter identifies potential candidates and how GettingHired takes additional steps to assist the job seeker in getting noticed.
Eighty percent of candidates with disabilities say they use general job boards. Yet, only 29% said they got their last job via a general job board. Niche job boards provide some unique advantages to both job seekers and employers.
GettingHired’s virtual career fair is your chance to connect directly with recruiters from companies, who are hiring for a number of open positions. The career fair lasts for several hours, but there is a time limit for conversations with recruiters, so you need to be prepared.
The overall unemployment rate is slowly decreasing, but the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is still in the double digits.
