The Australian Government conducts both face-to-face jobs fairs (with your safety in mind) along with a series of virtual jobs fairs. These virtual fairs are very much like our traditional jobs fairs except they are conducted online using a digital platform.
At both styles of events, job seekers and businesses are able to connect and discuss available employment opportunities as well as participate in interactive presentations. Presentations are conducted online for virtual Jobs Fairs.
For either face-to-face or virtual Jobs Fairs, make sure you prepare well and dress appropriately. You may be talking to your next employer, either in person or via video conference.

Here’s what some job seekers have said about previous jobs fairs
"I thought it was going to be a small little thing, but it is pretty big. It’s good to see there are a lot of opportunities for us."

"Speaking directly to employers helps as I don’t know why I haven’t got other jobs I’ve applied for. They said we’ll follow up with you after today."
