Why Traditional Career Fairs Are No Longer Effective

Have you ever found yourself wandering aimlessly through a crowded career fair, hoping to catch the attention of the right recruiter? Or, as a recruiter, have you ever felt exhausted from spending hours standing behind a booth, waiting for candidates to come by while filtering through stacks of resumes?

It's a common experience for everyone involved, and let's face it - the traditional career fair model isn't always the most effective way to find the right match. But what if there was a better way?

Enter the concept of pre-matching. Imagine being able to connect with potential employers or candidates before the actual career fair day, just like online dating, but for your career!

By pre-matching, job seekers and recruiters can chat, schedule interviews ahead of time, and ultimately make more targeted and efficient use of their time.

For job seekers, this means bypassing the chaos of the career fair and meeting with employers who have positions that match their skills and experience. And for recruiters, it means being able to pre-screen candidates beforehand and prepare for meaningful and targeted interviews on the spot.

It's a win-win situation that maximises ROI and efficiency for everyone involved. Why stick with the traditional career fair model when there's a better way to do things?

At Kabel, we've already tried this new concept with Taylor’s University & Sunway University last year, and the results were overwhelmingly positive, with a significant number of interviews happening on the career fair day. This year, we're expanding to even more universities, including Universiti Malaya and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaya from April to June, with a variety of job-matching events that everyone can join.

If you're a fresh graduate or someone looking for an internship, download Kabel app and start swiping and matching.
