My name is Smitha, and I work in Talent Attraction at Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group in the UK. So, why a virtual career fair? Well, we know that job seekers have busy, full lives. And we wanted to create a hassle free and inclusive way for you to meet our team and talk job possibilities.  

A great way to meet us  

Attending and chatting online to our team is a great way for you to find out a little more about us and for us to find out a little more about you. So whether you’re new to virtual career fairs, or would just like to know what to expect – here are 6 ways to get the most out of our online job fair: 
 
How virtual career fairs work  


       

Just like one of our traditional career fairs, it’s a very informal drop-in event – an opportunity for us to ‘meet’ each other and for you to talk to some of our managers and/or recruiters across Norway, Denmark & Ireland. The only difference is that we’ll be hosting it digitally. The virtual environment will look like a real-life career fair, complete with booths with information on our different business areas across the three countries. So you’ll be able to interact with us through chat, videos, career stories… and a live webinar featuring the Managing Director of each country.

1. Think about the device you plan to use  


      Make 

Make sure your device can support you. Our hiring managers might want to have a video call. So it’s better to have a device with a camera. If you can’t attend from a quiet, private location, have headphones at the ready. If you don't have a camera, or can’t take calls, no problem. You can use our chat functionality, which is also supported on mobiles. Other than an internet connection, you won’t need any special software or equipment to take part, just log-on via your browser. 

2. Decide if this virtual career fair is right for you 

Our first virtual careers fair will be focused on careers across our businesses in Norway, Denmark, & Ireland. And we’re particularly interested in meeting people who align to the following sectors and disciplines:  

If you’re looking for a career outside of these areas don’t worry, we’ll be running more throughout the year, across all of our practices, so keep an eye out on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.  

You can also take a look at our careers site to see all our current live vacancies and register for job alerts.  

3. Do some research on Atkins 

After registering, explore our website to find out about our projects and culture. Think about the top questions you have for us, the positions that you’re most interested in, and where you’d like your career with us to take you. 

4. Register early 

To help us plan appropriately, register well ahead of time.  

Once you’ve registered, you’ll get an email with the login details. You’ll receive a reminder to attend a week before, and the day before. All you’ll need to do on the day is log in at a time that suits you, on the 5th of November 2020, anytime between 11:00 and 13:00 CET, and start interacting with our hiring managers in the booths. You’ll be able to dip in and out of the virtual fair around your work and life commitments. 

5. Preparing for video chat 

Once a hiring manager starts a chat with you, the ball is in your court. Be ready to introduce yourself and ask any questions about us and our open positions. Our virtual fair and office vibe is smart-casual.  

6. What to do if you can’t make it on the day! 

If you’re tied up all day you can log in later that night, or even the next day and leave us an offline message. If that’s still going to be difficult, we have many more fairs planned for the rest of the year. You’re also welcome to apply directly to any of our open roles here.  

Our event is on 05-11-2020, so register now. Or if you have any other questions, send us an email

Good luck and we look forward to meeting you!
