Virtual Career Pathways Fair - 27, 28, 29 April 2021
SPE International is calling for volunteers to participate in the Third Virtual Career Pathways Fair!  During this event we are looking for volunteers to give advice through quick-fire virtual mentoring, explaining what it is like to do your job in the industry and how people who want to follow your footsteps can best prepare.

Advisers will be asked to review content for their virtual booth to make sure it properly reflects the job they are representing, and answer questions from participants during the "live" time slots.  

As an online opportunity, we are looking for volunteers who can commit to three hours on at least one of the event dates during which time they can respond to online questions about their role. We are also looking for virtual moderators who can encourage and engage discussion in networking forums.

About the Virtual Conference

This is our first Virtual Conference and we are working with platform provider iVent to create a conference style website. This we will be live for a few hours on three consecutive days to encourage users and volunteers to participate at the same time. During this time users will be able to access live webinars, exhibitors and professionals to gain a better understanding of the career opportunities ahead of them.

Volunteers will be given unique access to online booths were we will show resources about different job roles in the industry. This will be a focal point for people to submit text questions about your role that you can respond to during the conference.
