Using Infinite BrassRing for Job Fairs
As a leading talent acquisition suite, Infinite BrassRing offers several features and tools to streamline the process of conducting job fairs for school districts.

Pre-Event Planning and Organization
Candidate registration:
with Infinite BrassRing, candidates can register for job fairs online, providing the district with insightful demographic and insight into the preferences of those who will be attending.

Customizable event pages: Crafting unique event pages is easy with BrassRing, allowing districts to broadcast their brand, open positions, and a bit about their culture on a customizable event landing page.

Candidate Engagement and Communication
Scheduling Tools: Districts can manage their time and resources with advanced scheduling tools that require very little of the district’s staff to set up interview and/or informational session opportunities with the widest range of candidates possible at job fairs.

Real-Time Messaging: With real-time messaging, district representatives can easily communicate with candidates for smooth coordination and efficient follow-up.

Data Analytics and Reporting
Attendance Metrics: BrassRing closely monitors attendance metrics, keeping tabs on each candidate who registered, attended and interacted with district representatives at the job fair.

Candidate Feedback: BrassRing employs post-event surveys and feedback forms, gathering critical insights into candidate satisfaction and their overall perspective on the recruitment process.

Evaluating Job Fair Success
Attendance Rate: The job fair’s attendance rate reflects the percentage turnout of registered candidates who actually attended the event. A higher attendance rate is indicative of not just a strong interest in district employment opportunities, but also a successful event promotion.

Candidate Engagement Metrics: Candidate engagement metrics—such as the number of interviews conducted, informational sessions attended and initiated follow-up interactions by candidates—offer valuable insights into the level of engagement and the amount of interest district employment generates.

Conversion Rate: A job fair’s conversion rate is the percentage of attendees who are able to successfully advance to the next stage of the hiring process, whether it’s by submitting applications or attending follow-up interviews. A higher conversion rate indicates that the right candidates were screened and that their interest aligned with district requirements.

Time-to-Hire: This metric measures the average time that elapses from when a candidate initiated contact at the job fair to the final decision to hire. A shorter time-to-hire demonstrates an effective recruitment strategy and a shorter time to fill openings.

Candidate Satisfaction Scores: A post-event survey, candidate satisfaction scores can assess candidate satisfaction with your job fair event on several factors such as organization, communication and general impression of the district.

Infinite BrassRing provides an integrated suite of analytics and tools to help school districts better plan, execute and evaluate job fairs. By leveraging these tools, districts will be better able to elevate candidate engagement, simplify recruitment efforts, and make informed decisions to help them attract the best candidates.
