Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is the EFMD Virtual Fair Solution GDPR compliant?
A: Yes, data is processed in accordance with GDPR requirements.
BEFORE THE FAIR
Q: Which other schools typically attend?
A: Since the announcement of the EFMD Virtual Career Fair Series by Highered, we have received an overwhelmingly positive response. More than 110 schools participated in the Spring Series and we expect more than 200 schools to be on board for the Fall Series. Participating schools can be seen here.
Q: Which recruiters will attend?
A: As companies and organizations come on board for each of the fairs, we will be updating the Highered web with this information. Please check here to see the logos of participating companies and organizations updated on a regular basis.
Q: How will I be able to login and participate in the virtual fairs?
A: The virtual fairs will be hosted on gethighered.global. Therefore, anyone with student/alumni or admin status at the school will be able to access it.
Q: Do you have any further information on the types of jobs they advertise?
A: Given that the EFMD is an organization of quality, it is very important to us that the opportunities posted are relevant for the talent representing our academic institutions. In approaching the recruiters, we are encouraging them to share opportunities ranging from internships, to graduate/rotational programs and experienced hire positions.
Q: Are the virtual career fairs targeted to undergraduate or graduate students?
A: Both current students (ranging from undergraduate to postgraduate profiles) and alumni from registered schools are invited to participate in the virtual fairs. The only exception would be the Virtual Fairs targeting MBAS only which will take place from October 6-8, 2020.
Q: Are the fairs only for business school students?
A. If your business school is part of a wider university system with different schools/faculties, your Career Center is eligible to extend an invitation to relevant talent based on the target profiles of the respective fairs at their discretion. Please check with your Career Center for more information about access.
DURING THE FAIR
Q. Can I upload my CV to the virtual fair platform?
Given that you will apply to an opportunity directly on the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) or similar of the employer, CVs are not uploaded to the GetHighered virtual fair platform. However, recruiters will be able to view and access your profile based on the profile completed on the GetHighered platform.
Q. What opportunities do I have to interact with the companies on the day of the event?
The virtual fairs replicate an actual recruiting event, where you can easily can visit the virtual spaces, view company profiles/videos, maintain private chats with recruiters (including video calls and public chats), view job opportunities and employer branding content, apply to jobs and attend webcasts and seminars.
Q: Is there a queue or waiting line to have a chat with recruiters at a specific company?
A: No, there is no waiting line because a recruiter can have more than 1 private chat at the same time. Also, each company or organization can have technically infinite recruiters in their virtual space and they can refer the visitor to another colleague who’s online at the same time.
Q. How can I manage my time?
Talent spends much less time at a virtual career fair versus a traditional career fair. Viewing of the actual virtual spaces and company webinar agenda begins on Day 1 (Preparation Day) of each Fair, as well as the CV Clinics and live virtual conferences with the Careers gurus and speakers. Dr. Amber Wigmore Alvarez, CIO of Highered EFMD Shared Career Services, will lead a masterclass in September ahead of the Fall Series launch on “How to Succeed at a Virtual Career Fair”. Following the live broadcast, the masterclass will be made available in the “Masterclasses” section of your school’s GetHighered.global platform.
Q. Is there any kind of sign-up process for the company presentation webinars or are they always completely open?
The company presentation webinars are open with no need to pre-register. Each company would use their own webinar platform (e.g. Zoom) and the capacity would be based on the respective company’s platform.
Q. How are the private chats initiated?
It is the student or alum who opts to initiate a private chat with a recruiter.
