Drop in to hear from leading companies hiring in different locations across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East regions, and learn what you’ll need to do to get your foot in the door (figuratively speaking). Then it’s your turn to ask questions during a live 40-minute Q&A! Take advantage of the opportunity to ask about everything from the application process—are cover letters actually necessary?—to life at the company in general.
Virtual Job Fair
When December 02, 2021 07:00 AM EST
PowerToFly’s mission is to upskill and connect diverse talent to high-visibility roles. Our platform has nearly 400,000 active community members across 204 countries and access to databases of over 165,000,000 professionals. We are intersectional and empower women, non-binary and trans individuals of all races, ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, abilities, veteran statuses and gender identities.
Really impressed with the format, I was very skeptical how this would go virtually. I think the powertofly hosts did an excellent job driving the conversation and leading. I am impressed by the level of professionalism and preparation that went in to making this run so smoothly. Well done to the team!
I always feel safe going to a PowerToFly Job Fair as I know that the companies present are held to a high standard and that their values and culture align.
I really appreciated the opportunity to hear company recruiters speak about openings and their hiring processes. In addition, it was very encouraging that all the companies that participated demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion. I look forward to the next event.

This event is just like an in-person job fair, but online! Each participating company has its own virtual “booth” (Zoom room) that you can join from the comforts of your home. Use this time to ask hiring managers questions about their open positions, their culture, and what it’s like working for their organization. Each participating company will also be giving short presentations throughout the fair - the content for each presentation is the same, so make sure to check out each company’s room to learn more!
Yes it is! Each company has a page on PowerToFly where you can read more about their organization and see their open roles. Before the fair, make sure your PowerToFly profile is up-to-date so you can utilize the one-click ‘I’m Interested’ feature and let companies know you’re interested!
PowerToFly’s mission is to lift the world through placing and keeping underrepresented people in high-visibility careers. All community members are welcome to attend PowerToFly events regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender identity, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, or age. If you require accommodation to fully participate in one of our events, please respond to your invitation with a specific request.
Unfortunately, PowerToFly and the company it is holding an event on behalf of cannot admit outside recruiters.
If you go to PowerToFly.com, there is a banner at the top of the page with a "Join Now" button for the Virtual Job Fair. From there you will be directed to a page where you can pick the company you'd like to join. Clicking "Join Session" will open a new tab with the Zoom room. If you'd like to see multiple presentations, then you can close the Zoom Room tab & choose another company from the main PowerToFly Virtual Job Fair page.
You do not have to stay for the whole event. We've designed a rotating schedule of company presentations so that you can attend each presentation while also being able to but drop in on any company room that interests you. You also have the option to leave the fair entirely and come back if that’s more convenient for you.
While being on camera is not mandatory, we recommend keeping it on and unmuting your microphone to introduce yourself to the hiring managers and virtually network with attendees. You will also have access to the chat box if you are unable to unmute and ask questions live.
The event is recorded, but it will not be available for attendees to access after the fair. We've put together a rotating schedule of company presentations so even if you only have a short break, you could still drop in on a presentation or two (if you're interested in several companies).
Yes, you should be able to log in via smartphone. You can dial into the Zoom conference room just by phone or you can download the Zoom app which would enable you to see the presentations from the various companies (& share your own camera if you'd like). You'll also be able to log in, then sign out & come back later, or visit various Zoom rooms to see/talk to different companies as you wish.
No need to dress for the occasion at all, in fact, a lot of our PowerToFly hosts & company presenters will be dressed casually as they work from home. We encourage participation from our attendees and you’ll be free to turn on your camera for some face-time with the company. But you're also welcome to keep your camera turned off & even post your questions in the text chat if you'd prefer.
