Why Highered Virtual Events?
We understand you
We understand your struggles and want to take as much of the organizational, administrative and technical work behind creating an event off your shoulders so that you can concentrate on delivering the best services to talent.
Keeps you focus on more important things
Organizing your institution’s Virtual Fairs and Events with Highered will allow staff to focus on the event itself and on effectively connecting recruiters and talent without the unnecessary “backstage” tasks. We take care of that for you. That way you get to dramatically reduce the administration setup and training time, and instead, prioritize what truly matters.
Integrated in the platform – no third party!
It’s just a one-click process for your talent to register and attend – the Highered Virtual Events platform is integrated with the school-branded GetHighered platform, making it a quick and easy way for them to connect with recruiters.
You have complete control
As an institution, you have complete control of setting up the event, inviting your corporate partners, informing the talent and monitoring talent engagement once the fair has begun. You get a unique opportunity to advertise your institution’s talent and an individually tailored chance to connect with recruiters virtually in real time – the event is exclusive to your institution.
Types of Virtual Fairs
Whatever your event needs may be, we can create a virtual space tailored specifically to your institution. The Highered Virtual Events platform offers complete versatility for institutions to host any type of online event.

“ALBA working with Highered on our virtual career fair was extremely convenient as we had already participated in the Spring and Fall Virtual Career Fair Series, so our students, corporate partners and careers team were familiar with the platform and the entire process. The interface was easy to use and tech support was on call to assist users if any issues arose. We especially liked that it was not a one size fits all platform! Highered customized functionalities and features unique to our career fair and incorporated them in the platform. Finally, we received excellent feedback from our students and recruiters on the availability of tech support and user friendliness.”
