What is a virtual hiring event?
A virtual hiring event is speed dating for recruiting.
During a virtual hiring event, recruiters conduct 1-on-1 video interviews with a large batch of candidates, all in a single day, so you can increase the number of hires each recruiter makes.
Since virtual hiring events remove the hassle of travel, you can market your event to a broader pool of candidates and make it easier for talent to engage with you.
Lastly, with streamlined screening & scheduling, virtual hiring events save your recruiters time by automating mundane busy-work.
How does it Work?
#1: Source Talent
with Programmatic Ads on Social Channels
To bring the right talent, we help you intelligently promote your event with programmatic ads.
Traditional avenues of outreach like job boards are becoming increasingly expensive.
To lower your costs, we utilize programmatic advertising on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and other platforms to reach all possible candidates, including hard to find passive candidates.
Our ads reach candidates before they join a job board, allowing you to be among the first employers they consider when changing jobs.
#2: Screen & Schedule
with Real-time Chatbots
Once a candidate taps into an ad, they don't want to submit a clunky form to register for your event.
On Eventus, rather than filling out a form, the candidate will interact with a chatbot to submit their resume and other information.
The chatbot will also screen candidates and automatically schedule them for an interview during your hiring event.
Over 35% of qualified candidates who start our chatbot will end up scheduling an interview, which directly translates to a reduction in your cost per applicant.
In comparison, SHRM states that, only 8% of users who start a job application form actually complete it.
#3: Prevent No-Shows
with Reminders (Automated & Manual)
Once a candidate registers for our event, we put our focus on making sure they show up to their scheduled interview, or notify us in advance that they're no longer interested.
We know how valuable your time is, so our hiring events place a huge emphasis on making sure that candidates actually show up to their interviews.
We use a combination of automated text reminders & manual human messaging to make sure that candidates show up to the right place at the right time.
Even in roles that are notorious for no-shows (ex: entry level hourly positions), our process achieves at least a 70% attendance rate, with rates typically closer to 85-90%.
#4: Streamline Interviews
using our Seamless, Native Experience
On the day of the event, your hiring managers will be directed to join a video room (no installations required).
Throughout the hiring event, candidates will join this room to speak with the hiring manager for a short amount of time.
If any candidates are deemed good fits, they will be instructed on next steps, whether that’s to speak with HR to sign an on-the-spot offer, or to speak with a recruiter to move onto the next interview.
Interior Health Canada
Since the onset of the pandemic, Interior Health found itself in greater demand as healthcare services were constrained worldwide. Consequently, Interior Health needed to fill several unique roles and positions with very specific skill sets. In order to achieve their hiring objectives, Interrior Health Canada partnered with Eventus to take advantage of the pre screening and pre booking features.
Home to vast cohorts of entrepreneurs, GoingVC helps its members connect with opportunities across all industries. GoingVC is built around the idea of expanding its scope of networking and education investments. To this end, GoingVc partnered with Eventus to help make their talent more accessible.
University of Texas at Austin
Lead by a top-tier recruiting office, McCombs boasts leading job placement statistics worldwide. However due to pandemic, traditional means of recruitment became a rather impractical way for alumni and professionals to connect with current students due to safety concerns.
School-wide fairs and events are essential components of the McGill community fabric to help students meet their job searching needs. With the sudden arrival of COVID-19, McGill had little time to adapt their event programming for the 2020-2021 school year.
