Graduate Prospects wins contract to develop Scottish Virtual Fair system

Graduate Prospects has secured a contract with the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) in Scotland to develop a Virtual Careers Fair.

The software development business unit within Graduate Prospects will develop the bespoke software, which will create a more user-friendly, stimulating and interactive virtual fair system. Initially it will be for employers from across China and South East Asia.

As well as facilitating group chat with forums and chat rooms, it will stream video and audio and a & lsquo;virtual exhibitor hall’ will be created.

Mike Hill, chief executive at Graduate Prospects says: “The virtual fairs software solution will be fully integrated across our Prospects’ platforms, enabling students and employers to incorporate the new system into their accounts. We anticipate that this will be the first of many regional collaborations as careers services and employers seek to develop their online capabilities.”

 Jim Campbell, international careers adviser at the University of Glasgow is leading the project. He says: “It’s vital that students and graduates who wish to pursue employment opportunities internationally are supported by giving them direct contact with graduate employers in their target country. Virtual fairs provide an efficient way of exploring career options and applying for vacancies without the expense of an overseas trip.

“We decided to work with Graduate Prospects due to their expertise in developing software as well as their unique insight and knowledge of the graduate recruitment environment.”
