With recruitment teams and jobseekers all “zoomed-out”, it has taken a while for the market to realise that virtual recruitment events just don’t work. Physical events on the other hand, including open days and job fairs, are beginning to return and especially in healthcare with so many staff now vaccinated.
Recruitment events, especially job fairs, remain extremely popular in the healthcare staffing industry because they allow in-house recruitment teams to get away from the distractions of staffing a busy hospital and to focus exclusively on meeting and recruiting great candidates all under the one roof.
Job fairs provide a unique opportunity in this digital age for providers and candidates to connect directly in-person. They remain the most efficient and cost-effect recruitment marketing solution in the healthcare industry with savings of up to 90% on normal recruitment agency placement costs.
