Monster Healthcare Virtual Career Fair

Healthcare prosFrom December 13 to 15, Monster will be hosting a Healthcare Virtual Career Fair, created to help healthcare professionals connect in a new way with national and local healthcare providers and companies with positions to fill.

To participate, all you need is an Internet connection. You'll be able to interact online with exhibitors and attendees via written chat, webinars, and video chat; access information about open positions; exchange contact information; and schedule meetings with exhibitors and professionals.

The registration process takes less than five minutes, and gives you full access to the virtual fair.

How to Make the Most of a Virtual Career Fair
Set yourself up for success with these tips:

1. Make sure your resume is up-to-date. Because this is one of the first things that potential employers will see, it’s important proofread carefully and highlight your top accomplishments clearly.

Start your resume with a clear summary of your background and what you have to offer an employer. (For tips on crafting your resume, check out "Resume Tips for Healthcare Professionals.")

2. Research employers. You never want to enter a conversation with an employer without knowing a little bit its goals, its products, and its mission. After you register and see some of the participating employers, you can go to the company websites and do a bit of research. This is knowledge that will serve you well during the fair.

3. Set some career goals. You may think that telling an employer that you’re “open to any opportunities” will make you likelier to land a job. In fact, hiring managers want people who have specific skills, interests, and specialties.

Think about what your career goals are, so you can target your efforts (this is much more effective than scatter-shot applications).

A good exercise before going into the fair is to develop an elevator pitch or “personal brand” statement -- something that will help you explain the value you bring to an employer, in easy-to-remember sound bites.

4. Keep it professional. Even though this is an online event, dressing professionally and making sure you are in a professional-looking environment will boost your confidence (and you don't want to be in your pajamas when a hiring manager requests an impromptu video chat!).

Check out Monster.com's library of Healthcare Career Advice, and register today for Monster's Healthcare Virtual Career Fair, happening on your computer December 13 to 15.

Monster will host a Healthcare Virtual Career Fair to help Healthcare professionals connect in a new way with Healthcare providers looking to hire.

Don't miss this great opportunity to interact online with multiple Healthcare providers to find the job you've been looking for.
