Meet Hiring Managers Virtually

To uplift the neurodiverse professionals and professionals with disabilities in our community, PowerToFly is hosting a Virtual Job Fair as part of our July Diversity Reboot Summit, “Destigmatized: Visible & Invisible Disabilities and Neurodivergence”. The companies at this fair are all top employers of neurodiverse professionals and professionals with disabilities, who have refined their recruitment processes to be accessible and welcoming. As a candidate, you’ll have the chance to explore open roles, network with others in your industry, and (fingers crossed) land your new favorite job. We hope you’ll join us!

What is a Virtual Job Fair?

More frequently asked questions answered here

This event is just like an in-person job fair, but online! Each participating company will host a presentation and will take questions from the attendees. Use this time to ask hiring managers and recruiters questions about their open roles, their culture, and what it’s like working for their organization.

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 cannot admit outside recruiters.

When the event starts, you will see "Join Now" button on this landing page for the Virtual Job Fair. From there you will be directed to a page where you can learn about each company and join the session. Clicking "Join Session" will open a new tab with the Zoom room. Stick around for the breakout session within Zoom, and follow instructions from moderator to join breakout sessions.

You don’t have to stay for the whole event. make sure to choose the companies you would like to hear from and join during the time they will be online. You can find their designated time for the Virtual Job Fair on this page if you click the company’s logo.

While being on camera is not mandatory, we recommend keeping it on. You will also have access to the chat box to ask questions and "raise your hand" feature to ask questions off mute.
The event is recorded, but we will share only the companies’ presentations after the event to everyone who had registered.

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.

We add FAQ document for each company that is available only during the Virtual Job Fair. Navigate to the landing page, click company’s logo and find "FAQ".

Upload your resume to your PowerToFly profile (add link) and apply for a suitable role through PowerToFly. Your resume/CV will be visible for the hiring manager.

If you still have a question that wasn’t answered above, email the team at hi@powertofly.com.
