Getting to know your future employer online – virtual job fairs make it possible. The German Information Centres for Migration, Vocational Training and Career (DIMAK) in Serbia and Albania also use this format. In a joint interview, Marija Brankovic from DIMAK Serbia and Earli Shima from DIMAK Albania talk about their experiences with virtual job fairs and the challenges and opportunities of the concept.
Virtual job fairs – why? Due to COVID-19?
Marija Brankovic: The pandemic has changed the way companies recruit and train employees. Searching for a job and communicating with employers online is becoming more and more important. Participating in a virtual event is also more appealing for our target groups, since they often feel insecure in formal settings.
