Participants welcomed Virtual Career Fair with great experience
The two-day Cyberport Virtual Career Fair in April not only offered numerous job vacancies in a wide spectrum of digital tech and business-related fields, but also shared practical insights and useful tips from industry experts and enterprise employers for better understanding the sector and interview tricks. 
Helpful and efficient job matching platform connecting employers with candidates
“The Virtual Career Fair was a great initiative much needed in the current environment. Attendee participation was high,” says Wing Lee, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hashcademy. “For example, at our CV Clinic, we helped about 20 candidates fine-tune their CVs in just two hours.”

“The virtual exhibition booth offered us great flexibility and features to showcase our openings, increase our exposure, and make it easy for the right prospects to find us. Because the event was held virtually, job seekers could join from anywhere. Our Business Analyst position received 130 applications, including one from the US!” says Anthony Lai, General Manager of FibreAPI Technologies Limited.

“I liked the format of the Virtual Career Fair as it was easy to access and allowed me to check out and apply for many jobs in one go,” added Anant Garg, a year 4 Computer Science student at the University of Hong Kong.
Get equipped to ace virtual job interviews
Interviewing online is an inevitable trend considering both the current environment and as jobs become more global. To master this format, many recruiters said job seekers should be prepared to speak in front of a camera. “Practice talking in front of a camera and looking into the camera instead of the screen, whether you are recording a video CV or having a mock interview,” says Wing.

“It is important to pay attention to your appearance, background, surrounding environment and to look out for noise that may adversely affect your presentation,” adds Kingson Kwan, Managing Partner of Ergon Executive. “During virtual interviews, recruiters will not be able to assess your body language. But you will have the recruiter’s attention. If appropriate and possible, use the ‘share screen’ feature to show your past works, such as presentation deck or website to impress the recruiter.” 

Anthony added, “don’t forget to spend time studying the company’s background and culture. That way, you can customise your answers with relevance and show your insights.”
As the Cyberport Virtual Career Fair platform remains open until the end of June, job seekers can browse for latest job offers, career advices and insights shared by business leaders, including Cyberport unicorns GOGOVAN, WeLab and ZhongAn International.
