This hiring fair is part of a 4-day virtual summit we're hosting with companies and thought leaders committed to building a more diverse and inclusive post-COVID world. You can learn more here.
Sign up to meet companies who want you to work where you’re going to thrive, not just survive. Enjoy short presentations from HR leaders, followed by a twenty minute live Q&A where you’ll have the opportunity to ask them anything about their opportunities or what it’s like working at their organization.

PowerToFly is an online platform and community connecting women with companies committed to diversifying their workforce and with each other.

Create your free profile today to get access to free coaching, resume views, invite-only events with top executives and an invite to our next virtual job fair!
This event is just like an in-person job fair, but online! Each participating company has its own virtual “booth” (Zoom room) that you can join from the comforts of your home. Use this time to ask hiring managers questions about their open positions, their culture, and what it’s like working for their organization. Each participating company will also be giving short presentations throughout the fair - the content for each presentation is the same, so make sure to check out each company’s room to learn more!
Yes it is! Each company has a page on PowerToFly where you can read more about their organization and see their open roles. Before the fair, make sure your PowerToFly profile is up-to-date so you can utilize the one-click ‘I’m Interested’ feature and let companies know you’re interested!
This event is intended for women and those who identify as women, however, all RSVP’d attendees are welcome, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender identity, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, or age.
If you go to PowerToFly.com, there is a banner at the top of the page with a "Join Now" button for the Virtual Job Fair. From there you will be directed to a page where you can pick the company you'd like to join. Clicking "Join Session" will open a new tab with the Zoom room. If you'd like to see multiple presentations, then you can close the Zoom Room tab & choose another company from the main PowerToFly Virtual Job Fair page.
You do not have to stay for the whole event. We've designed a rotating schedule of company presentations so that you can attend each presentation while also being able to but drop in on any company room that interests you. You also have the option to leave the fair entirely and come back if that’s more convenient for you.
While being on camera is not mandatory, we recommend keeping it on and unmuting your microphone to introduce yourself to the hiring managers and virtually network with attendees. You will also have access to the chat box if you are unable to unmute and ask questions live.
The event is recorded, but it will not be available for attendees to access after the fair. We've put together a rotating schedule of company presentations so even if you only have a short break, you could still drop in on a presentation or two (if you're interested in several companies).
Yes, you should be able to log in via smartphone. You can dial into the Zoom conference room just by phone or you can download the Zoom app which would enable you to see the presentations from the various companies (& share your own camera if you'd like). You'll also be able to log in, then sign out & come back later, or visit various Zoom rooms to see/talk to different companies as you wish.
No need to dress for the occasion at all, in fact, a lot of our PowerToFly hosts & company presenters will be dressed casually as they work from home. We encourage participation from our attendees and you’ll be free to turn on your camera for some face-time with the company. But you're also welcome to keep your camera turned off & even post your questions in the text chat if you'd prefer.
