    Since the pandemic started last year and everything became virtual, which do you prefer, virtual career fairs or in-person career fairs? Which type do you feel is better and more effective?

    This is a great question! I don't have the answer, but I would love to see what others say.
    My guess would be it depends on the type and industry of the jobs available. If the roles are corporate, many people have become accustomed to being at home and virtual may work, but if the roles are industrial/manufacturing, it may be better to have them in person.

    Interesting question!  Personally, I feel that career fairs are an outdated way to engage applicants well before the pandemic started.   Success has been dwindling on these events for the last 5 years. Many times we would see the same applicants or the swag collectors at inperson events.    As the job seeker becomes more savvy and informed, they are going to do more research online versus finding information at a career fair whether virtual or not.  The only thing that I could see shifting this would be a huge increase unemployment numbers (across all sectors). 
    Looking forward to hearing others perspectives.
