Careers Fair Rationale
The Samaggi Careers Fair aims to provide an online platform to connect Thai operating companies with Thai students and graduates who have studied in the United Kingdom; it enables participants to interact virtually with those companies. These virtual events include online presentation given by certain companies – the content of which may be decided by the respective organisation – followed by periods of Q&A. Alongside these events, companies are able to arrange virtual interviews, forming a deeper understanding with participants, providing new insights and opportunities.
The event will include:
Virtual career booths where attendees can explore, talk and present interest to representatives of given companies.
Online presentations given by companies from varying sectors, insight into employee work-life and any other topic of interest, followed by an open session for questions.
- Careers Service: The free consulting service and workshops about job applications, CV checking, careers Q&A by the volunteers.
Online job and internship application platform (CV submissions can be handed in on the day of the event and up to two weeks later)
- Hexafair can be accessed via website and mobile application
- Inside the booth, the overview of the company will be displayed along with business cards showing contact information e.g. phone no., address, email and social media links such as Facebook.
- There will be a chat feature provided inside the booth where attendees can ask and receive a response from the particular exhibitor instantly.
- There is also a “Connect” feature where attendees can easily exchange contact and be able to chat with exhibitors as well as other attendees (very similar to LinkedIn). The system will also come up with some recommendations based on the interest set by the attendees.
- “My box” feature which records the activities of attendees for example, documents and videos the attendees viewed at a particular booth.
- By choosing this platform, participants will feel like they are still walking through the careers fair, only that this is a virtual platform. Participants will be able to use cursors to guide themselves around the fair.
