How to organize your own Private Event with Highered – Live Demo

What else is new

Create your own private event

Following a successful series of 2020 virtual career fairs and having incorporated feedback from Career Services, recruiters and talent, we have determined that schools would like to organize their own virtual career events, while continuing to offer their talent access to the global, multi-school events.

In order to assist and align with the schools’ private custom events, the 2021 edition of the EFMD Global Fairs by Highered have positively evolved and are now enhanced, allowing for a best of both worlds scenario.

Your school’s Talentpanel private event feature enables your institution to organize a wide array of virtual events for your students or alumni, set up by Career Services, as well as other strategic departments of your institution.

Not only that, but the flexibility of the system enables you to create private virtual events that can be made visible to partner schools in your network, consortium or alliance.

Just imagine the possibility of inviting your corporate partners to engage exclusively with your students and alumni and/or those of your partners.

Given that participating companies and organizations at each event can be distributed and viewed according to criteria such as sector or location, you are now able to organize geographic, sector or profile-specific events for optimal targeting.

So this way your talent will be able to attend global events organized by EFMD, global or private events organized by companies/organizations, and of course your private events, large or small,  all on the same platform.

In addition to virtual fairs, keep in mind that the solution, which includes a sophisticated meeting scheduler and video chat functionality embedded into your school’s Talentpanel, would be ideal for:

Recruiter panels
Recruiter interviews
Mock interviews
Company and organization presentations
Roundtable discussions with recruiters
Mini-talent summits
International study tours and recruiting visits
Case challenges
Career advising sessions
Drop-in sessions
Customized roundtables with recruiters
Alumni meet-ups
Coffee with Careers
There is no end in sight to the possibilities. Connect with us to share your vision and we will work with you to find a solution.
