We know this is a challenging time for schools to recruit and hire the best candidates for their students.   These VIRTUAL JOB FAIRS give you a chance to hire for your most urgent positions and plant the seed with future prospects  by connecting directly with qualified candidates from a broad set of sources. 

Educate Minnesota focuses on attracting participating candidates who are:

  • From underserved and underrepresented populations.
  • New educators entering the field.
  • Licensed educators working in other fields.
  • Alternate careers  / career-changers.
  • Out-of-state educators.

Candidate profiles and attendance count:

Historically, 65% – 80% of candidates creating a profile attend the virtual job fairs.
Participating Employers have full visibilty of all registered candidates BEFORE AND AFTER the event.  

March 29: 497 profiles in database; 303 attended
 April 5: 393 profiles in database; 251 attended
  May 11: 523 profiles in database; 282 attended
 June 21: 420 profiles in database; 201 attended

This is a cost-effective and time-efficient way for hiring administrators,  principals, and  HR professionals to connect with qualified candidates.   Plus, you have continued access to the candidate database as a recruiting source for future staffing needs.

Thanks so much, Chris! I appreciate how easy you make this for us. 
To me, in many ways, it was even better and more efficient than in person.  We were able to put our full attention and focus on the individual virtual visits and did not worry about missing candidates as they walked by.

There was a large pool of applicants. I liked that it was possible to invite candidates to a conversation in advance of the event if we had access to the add-on that allowed us to view resumes.

As a rep, I had control over the platform. It was user friendly. I like that I was able to view their resume on the side and ask questions based on it. It was smooth.

Having a virtual booth allowed us to connect with many educators who likely never would have given us a look. The platform allowed me to host dozens of video chats that felt similar to a physical booth at a fair.

How it works for employers

  1. Register: Employer registration is now closed.Complete the employer registration form online.
  2. Set up your booth and assemble your representatives (recruiters): Shortly after registration, the designated district contact(s) will receive an onboarding email with a guide on how to set up the virtual booth for the best candidate experience, a FAQ on managing the booth, and key dates for live training.  This guide will include live “booth owner orientation” sessions to learn how to customize their booth and plan for a successful job fair (recording available afterward).
  3. Prepare: Employer representatives recruiting at the event will also have live opportunities to participate in special training sessions to instruct them on using pre-event resources to recruit and effectively engage during the live event.  Training will provide best practices for communication and assessment of candidates, and walk participants through how to use the screening tools available to identify the best potential talent for your organization.
  4. Recruit Early: In the weeks before the live event, employers have access to the early access candidate registry, a spreadsheet-like view of candidate profiles that can be easily filtered to narrow down based on traits like desired geographic area, positions, licensure, etc.  All teaching candidates will be invited to complete the Humanex StyleProfile Builder™ talent inventory, the results of which are available to employers at the Silver and Gold levels.   The early access candidate registry is a powerful tool that helps you gauge how to staff your booth and reach out to candidates that fit your needs to make a connection.  Representatives for employers on the Silver or Gold package may invite candidates to reserve time to schedule chats at specific times during the live event.
  5. Attend: Each representative will log in between 3:00 and 7:00 pm on the day of the live event, to connect with candidates for scheduled and unscheduled chat interactions.  Each chat has a 10-minute timer and will start as text interaction.  Representatives have the ability to extend the chat time and can invite the candidate to video chat.
  6. Follow-up:  Employer representatives have continued access to the database of all candidate profiles.  Silver and Gold level employers are able to access available Humanex StyleProfile Builder™ talent inventory results. Representatives can also access chat transcripts and performance reports from the event.
