Tahoe Works Virtual Job Fair

Liz Bowling | 04.23.19

Employers and job seekers will have the opportunity to connect one-on-one during the Tahoe Works Basin-Wide Virtual Job Fair, May 8 and 9 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The virtual job fair is expected to attract a large pool of candidates both in and out of the basin, with starting dates for available full-time, part-time, entry-level and experienced positions slated for late spring and early summer. Easy access to the fair will be provided to employers and prospective employees through an online portal from Easy Virtual Fair that allows the two groups to connect. The platform includes recruiting software that is 100 percent mobile, requires no downloads and allows employers to set up a virtual booth that lists available positions, a company profile and social media profiles, as well as to arrange meetings with applicants. Job seekers can sign up prior to the fair, upload their resumes, view postings and communicate with participating companies. The virtual event is free for candidates and sign up is available at:

Tahoe Works also provides a chance for companies to build their brands by reaching those living outside of their local area. Similar to job seekers, a virtual job fair reduces overhead costs for companies with online booths and the ability to connect with multiple prospects in an easy-to-access platform. Recruiters can then follow up with promising leads for in-person interviews after creating their shortlist during the event.

“We understand the employment challenges that local businesses face in high peak timeframes and wanted to help provide a solution, said Liz Bowling, communications director for the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association. “The Virtual Job Fair is a win-win, providing candidates and employers a greater pool of options.”

When is the Tahoe Works Virtual Job Fair?

Employers that are Chamber members may register for a virtual booth for $50 while non-members may register for $75. The deadline to register for a virtual booth is May 1, 2019.

Registration will open for job-seekers on April 22nd, and employers will then be able to access their virtual booth, upload company information, and enter available job positions and descriptions.

How much is it to register a virtual booth?

Registration is $50 for Tahoe Chamber members and $75 for non-members.

How will job-seekers learn about the virtual job fair?

We have a full marketing campaign utilizing digital, print and radio around the region. We are targeting Reno and Sacramento specifically for this job fair, as well as our typical local media avenues. We are also working with a PR company to pitch the concept to regional media outlets.

After a candidate registers and chooses to look at my company; what happens next?

Depending on the features you utilize within the platform they will see a list of all open positions, they can apply for jobs directly, they can set up a time to chat with one of your representatives, or they can just learn more about the company in general.

Does someone from my company have to be online at all times to answer the candidate?

No, you can set up time where you have a representative available to chat.  You can also set up times slots for private one on one chats if you have a candidate you are interested in speaking to.

Can we log out if we need to leave the office?     

You technically do not need to log in at all when the event is live unless you want to chat with attendees. Everything you upload will be done before the event happens.

How will the job fair work from start to end?

Guests log in while the event is live to see what jobs are offered and by who.  They can ask to chat with employers and apply for jobs that are open by uploading their resume and filling out applications. Employers can set up times to be available for guests to be able to ask questions. Before the event goes live you will upload all the information you want the guests to see, company profile, jobs open, application forms, etc.
