Once registered, candidates can upload their resume and profile information to the event website. During the live event, candidates will be able to chat directly with firms that have job openings matching their interests, via one-on-one real-time text conversations. Hiring firms will have the option of purchasing booths that showcase career opportunities and company culture. Firms will also have an option to have a recruitment video produced for candidates to view before and during the event.

“Finding qualified talent is one of our profession’s major challenges, and what used to work simply doesn’t any longer,” said Jeff Phillips, CEO of Accountingfly. “What works? Candidate engagement. This virtual career fair format reaches candidates where they are – on their smartphones, at their homes, or at work, giving employers a unique opportunity to engage talent they would have otherwise missed.”

Only CPAs with 2+ years of experience will be able to join the meet up, giving unprecedented recruiting opportunity for participating firms. “CPAs with 2+ years of public accounting experience are in incredibly high demand,” says Phillips, “and we want to give them a direct opportunity to meet the best employers in their markets in a discreet format.”
