Monster's Virtual Career Fair is a unique interactive online job fair which allows seekers to engage virtually with employers. It's an innovative way to connect with top employers, apply job postings and submit resume.

Using the online portal, job-seekers can get information on a company and the vacancies in that organisation and apply for jobs there. Sanjay Modi, MD, Monster.com (India, West Asia and Southeast Asia), said, “Today’s younger generation has 24/7 lifestyles. So, searching for that perfect job can be a testing and time-consuming exercise, especially when trying to juggle existing work commitments. A virtual experience, which results in the same outcome by helping job-seekers find better opportunities at the convenience of their homes, can only benefit job-seekers in India.”
Monster has already implemented this concept in Philippines, the Gulf countries, Malaysia and Singapore.
A total of 11 companies, including Larsen & Toubro, have confirmed participation in the virtual fair, the first in India. Modi said there would be more than 100 vacancies in companies across sectors such as information technology, fast-moving consumer goods and business process outsourcing. About 18,000 job-seekers have registered for the fair.
A brick-and-mortar job fair had disadvantages related to logistics, as well as time/distance constraints for candidates, Modi said, adding these concerns could be resolved by a virtual fair.
