Building on the success of 2020, ACCA’s virtual careers events this year will be bigger and better than ever.
ACCA is running a series of virtual careers fairs around the world again this year (see timetable below). Attendees will be invited to visit employers’ virtual booths (effectively, dynamic web pages), see the jobs on offer, learn about the company and chat with them before applying for vacancies. Universities and learning providers will also be on hand to discuss and promote their courses.
Building on the success of the virtual careers fairs last year, 2021’s events will be hosted on a new platform that enables employers and attendees to speak face-to-face via video chat or voice calls, which will streamline the application process and give a more rewarding experience.
In addition, applicants will be able to upload CVs during the registration process so their individual profiles will be visible and searchable to employers prior to and during the live days.
Number of jobs brought to the fairs: PwC, 178; EY, 175; BDO, 124; KPMG, 113; Deloitte, 60.
Other features include an ACCA Careers advice area, showcasing CV and careers experts via live chats, and webinars and articles that cover CV writing, interview skills, job hunting in a changing landscape, career change and coping with redundancy.
Attendees can also watch live and recorded webinars with employability experts and see testimonials from local members.
We will announce details specific to your region closer to the event date. Look out for updates in Advance in coming months.
