Launched by Moovijob in 2010 in Strasbourg, the concept of the recruitment evenings have strongly developed during the past years. Why are these evenings still successful? What value do they add compared to traditional career fair? The company Moovijob answers to these questions while preparing the next event.
Nowadays, the possibilities to get contact with the future employer have increased significantly. There are many choices to meet him, but which ones?
"Job boards, social media, fairs, recruitment agencies, co-option… people have a vast choice of channels to get in contact with the company they are interested in." explains Nicolas NGUYEN – Campus & Sourcing Manager at Moovijob.
According to Nicolas: “Face-to-face meetings allow especially the recruiter and the visitor to gain time. They see each other, the eyes meet, the feeling gets through. Many companies hire people at job fairs and they would have never recruited only by analysing their CV. That’s what we call the magic of the event.”
Recruitment events are a real success!
“At the beginning of the Moovijob Night project, people didn’t understand: evenings that take place in atypical places to find a job? The public was a bit lost at first, but then understood very quickly: testing this concept is adopting it.”, tells Yannick FRANK – Director Luxembourg at Moovijob.
Recruitment evenings have many advantages, explaining the reason why people were first conquered in Strasbourg. The companies are recruiting and the visitors are recruited. They are all exchanging in a pleasant atmosphere.
Besides, there is a rigorous pre-selection made by Moovijob which contributes considerably to the success of the evenings. Either for the companies which are about 40 and the guests.
“During our latest Luxemburgish evening organized in Paris, we only accepted 500 people from 1,500 applications. There are disappointments, but the task of matching satisfies a lot the companies and the visitors, who therefore are not coming for nothing!" continues Yannick.
Although the recruitment is not an official discipline at the Olympic Games, it is a highlight to meet your future employer in a sports arena!
