7. What is the schedule for the fair?

February 25, 2021 from 10:00am – 3:00pm ET. Employers will be able to interact with students through a 1-on-1 video chat or a group video chat using their video conferencing platform of their choice.

8. What is the process for 1-on-1 chats during the fair?

During the fair, employers interact with students through a 1-on-1 video chat or a group video chat. When the fair starts, participating recruiters will see students lining up in their1-on-1 queue. Recruiters select the student at the top of the list to initiate the chat. Once the video chat with the student starts, a timer will count down from the maximum time to zero. When time is up, recruiters will see an alert and hear a “ping” sound. Recruiters then End Chat and Dismiss Attendee in the video meeting. This is to avoid multiple students overlapping in the same chat. Recruiters can then initiate a chat with the next student in the queue.

9. How can employers generate interest in their organization or invite students to speak?

Before or during the fair, employers can generate interest in their company by inviting students to video chat. Go to the All RSVP’d Students tab, use Advanced Search to find students of interest, select them and use Mail To/Invite to Chat. There is a default template which employers can customize with their own message.

10. What if I have questions or issues during the fair?

All Ivy staff will be available at a virtual help desk for employers if any questions or issues come up. More details will be provided closer to the event date.
