What is a virtual job fair?

Virtual job fairs (career fairs) are very similar to traditional job fairs except for the handshake, travel, time, and cost it may require to attend an in-person recruiting event. In a virtual career fair, recruiters and jobseekers meet and interact in the company’s virtual booth or stand, and from the convenience of the home or office.
