INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYERS
Find the talent you need for this moment.
Through the Atlanta University Center Consortium Career Fair, companies, government agencies, and nonprofits have connected with the emerging professionals who now power their workforce not only through their competence, but from the cultural advantages which diversity brings. In 2020, as a precaution due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the career fair will be virtual using a robust online platform.
Through the virtual career fair, employers can:
» access student and alumni resumes
» match skills to open positions
» talk with students and alumni through streaming technology
» follow up quickly through digital tools
While in-person contact is a great way to make a connection, the AUCC 2020 Virtual Career reduces logistical and travel costs while allowing a broader range of the organization’s recruiting managers and associates the chance to interact with potential talent.
