For the past three years, myGwork has organized an online event called WorkFair. It became the largest global virtual career fair for the LGBTQ+ community, providing thousands of people with unique opportunities within a matter of minutes. But what takes place in this event to equip participants with such a beneficial advantage, and how can you make the most of this chance? Here’s how WorkFair operates!
Essentially, our annual WorkFair provides job seekers, recent graduates and students with the opportunity to network and connect with dozens of LGBTQ+ inclusive employee-seeking global organizations, completely free of charge. The LGBTQ+ community is ever-expanding, so here at myGwork we want to provide members of the community with the option to explore organizations that won’t discriminate against them based on sexual orientation or gender identity. With multiple employers involved including Netflix, Yahoo!, Lloyds Bank and Warner Bros. Discovery, there are a range of golden opportunities for participants with a variety of interests.
Not only can WorkFair provide these rare chances to work with huge corporations, but it also hosts:
- Company webinars, to get to know more about the company and their aims for inclusivity.
- Career workshops, specifically geared towards improving your job-searching skills and interview techniques.
- Real-time responses to job postings and the chance to book one-on-one interviews, meaning you could be minutes away from securing your dream job at any time.
Our main concern is ensuring that our participants feel supported throughout WorkFair, which is why those who register will receive help before, during and after the event takes place. Panels on achieving workplace inclusivity will also feature throughout the day, to reassure you on how the employers at WorkFair are going the extra mile to ensure that their workspace is inclusive and a safe space for LGBTQ+ employees.
Don’t miss out on this exceptional chance! Perfect for students who need to get their foot in the door, recent graduates who are searching for what’s next, and for LGBTQ+ jobseekers with concerns about how they will be treated, WorkFair strives to provide everyone involved with the opportunity to achieve.
