Information for Companies

Concept

poly-E-fair is the virtual career fair of ETH Zurich founded in spring 2019. Its virtual nature makes it possible for all parties to meet and exchange information on job openings and career opportunities at low cost without geographic restrictions. poly-E-fair is interdisciplinary and is open to all students and graduates from ETH Zurich. It is a unique networking opportunity for companies and organizations who are looking to recruit talented and highly skilled professionals to make a positive difference to their operations.

Format

poly-E-fair’s online platform offers the opportunity to contact students and researchers as well as ETH Zurich graduates directly. Each participating company creates an individual booth. Various tools such as chat rooms, live streams and a search function for suitable candidates adapts the experience of a physical fair to modern digital needs. Your company will greatly benefit from this experience.

Company Booths

Exhibitors can present themselves in virtual booths. The booths can contain different information about the company like links to external websites, documents or a direct application tool. The freedom of the booth design and the possibility to include videos, audio recordings and GIFs to the booth, gives every exhibitor the chance to present themselves in a brand  new way in comparison to classical job fairs.

Live Streams

A career livestream is a live video-broadcast of 30-45 minutes, which takes place at your company’s premises and features one or more of your employees giving authentic insights into daily work and life at your company. Your employees will have the chance to live answer questions raised by the audience. Participants will have the chance to send questions and upvote those of others, allowing your employees to see and answer the most relevant questions.

Are IT-Skills required?

No. Specific IT skills are not required for a successful participation in poly-E-fair. All you need to provide is a picture that serves as background of your booth, your company logo, and any kind of digital (marketing) material that you would like to present to the participants (flyers, videos, presentations, website-links etc.)

How many participants can we expect?

In 2020, we recorded 30 exhibitors and 1,500 visitors. Company representatives were excited to interact with this high number of students. This and the positive feedback from all sides exceeded all expectations.
