There are no geographical limitations or limits to the size of the venue. The advanced chat features let recruiters speak to multiple candidates at the same time. The integrated one-on-one video lets hiring managers easily invite candidates into a video interview to determine if the candidate is a good fit.

A benefit most hiring managers agree makes virtual career fairs so beneficial is the reporting aspect. At the end of the event, recruiters receive a report with everyone who attended the event, who attended which booths, how many resumes w...

Premier Virtual Review - 2021

We have aad good success navigating the platform, reaching customer service, and conducting job fairs.

Pros

The ease of use in setting up booths, very simple, and also the fact that I can embed the YouTube videos in the page.

Cons

When you go in to edit the booth, I would like to be able to select the color to match the companies logo. Low variety on that end, cold be improved on.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

The Workforce Development Board choose it for a number of reasons: one the cost was more practical, the features were all around more developed, three the company is veteran owned, and finally the customerservices was already superior to the previous program we worked with.

Reasons for Switching to Premier Virtual

When compared with Easy Virtual the Premier platform was more developed, the company is veteran owned, and finally the customer service was more accessible.

Premier Virtual

Premier Virtual helped us with being able to provide our Education career fair virtually. This is our biggest career fair of the year and well attended by our students/alumni in our credential programs. Our experience with customer service has been excellent and we've always received support when we needed it. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was instrumental in helping with the training of the staff involved in the planning and implementation the Education fair. Thank you, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]!

Pros

The ease of the set up on the administration side. Employers commented it was easy to set up their booths for the virtual career fair. Training materials are available and our event staff held training sessions for the employers.

Cons

I would have liked to be able to send correspondence to the registered participants and the employers through the system.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

Customer Service - Ease of use and time spent with me on the demo and answering my questions.

Premier Virtual falling behind competitors

Experience feels like 3-5 years old in a.time when almost everyone is using Zoom/Facetime/Meets/Teams and CRMs like salesforce and/or even Eventbrite...

Pros

Unlimited Employers Unlimited Events

Cons

Event Mis-Management 1. Employers who register don't get posted to a pre-event page. That's the job seeker and employer(competitors) "click bait"! Makes our event promotion effort painful. 2. No pre-event automated reminders to employers or job seekers. Makes execution of events totally inconsistent. Employers forget about the event and/or incompletely register (no jobs uploaded)... Employers can't view resumes prior to events to cherry pick candidates (which would motivated them to RSVP). 3. Post event follow up automation doesn't exist either. So, employers squander logs and job seekers who.miss event assume there's no opportunity to take advantage 4. Makes it too hard for employers to register or re-register. Most employers don't know that their jobs aren't already cycled over from one event to the next and their booths lack their own jobs WHICH ARE ALREADY THERE (see #2!) 5. Little or no implementation (kind of "phoned that in") of video or even audio streaming for I traction/engagement of participants.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

We selected it to try it a couple times (and others) to compare them for enterprise subscription.

Replied May 2021

While we have tried to verify this user, we have not been able to. In any case, we take every review seriously and are disappointed we did not meet this user's expectations. However, please contact your dedicated account manager since we do offer all of the features you are looking for. As with the majority of our reviews, our clients acknowledge the superior customer service we offer and is a big reason why they leave our competitors for us. Most of the other platforms you mentioned in the review (Zoom/Facetime/Meets/Teams and CRMs like salesforce and/or even Eventbrite) are only for video conferencing, which is a small part of the overall career fair platform experience without the white glove service we provide. Our platform does much more than that, allowing users to customize booths, lobby, live chat, and enter into video interviews and analytics/reports for hosts. Our account managers continually receive the highest marks and help whenever there are questions.

Premier Virtual-The cool tool for virtual Hiring Events

Our representative at the company, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] He is easy to schedule a meeting with, is always able to figure out what is going on, and he makes you feel at ease when you contact him. We had a situation that we could not figure out and we needed assistance quickly. He did not have any available appointments that day, so I sent an email to him. He got back to me right away and we started working on the issue. He helped me work through the issue even though it went in to the evening. I know he worked past his normal end of the day.

Pros

-It allows companies and job seekers to have an interactive conversation and it could even move from a texting type situation to a video chat. -The fact that the company can have more than one recruiter at the event and they can be chatting with different candidates at the same time -Reporting-you can run a report during an event and find out who is in attendance -Reporting-it is easy to see how much traffic the event generated and what the engagement level was from both sides. -We can check at any time and find out how many individuals have signed up for the event -It is easy, we don't have to worry about space, setting up tables, helping companies if they forgot something etc...

Cons

-It is not easy for the employers to see their actual booth. -The system times out to fast -The issues with cookies when going between the company sign in and the job seeker sign in -That only the company can initiate a video conference-many job seekers do not know this is a possibility

Reasons for Switching to Premier Virtual

We were not getting all the functionality out of them that we needed.

Wake County Public School System Review

Overall I am pleased with Premier Virtual. We are constantly seeking new and innovative ways to use the tool. Our representative [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been phenomenal and extremely patient with us during this learning curve.

Pros

The ease of the user interface. My Principals like being able to reach applicants without having to physically go to an event on a Saturday. We love the reach the tool has. We are able to reach many more out of state candidates. The reporting system is good. Setup is relatively easy

Cons

Setting up events is relatively easy but I did notice some things that hindered the process. ie: when removing a Business from an event, having to work with my representative to get those same businesses added again. Seems there should be a way I can do that on the administrator end. I would like to see a better way of having an Administrator be able to be the contact for multiple events without having to change the password (email address).

Premier Virtual Review

Pros

This product is extremely easy to use and as the administrator, I was able to easily assist users. After the event, receiving metrics was extremely valuable in reporting the number of unique interactions among students and exhibitors. This is a very cost effective platform and allows the users the ability to customize their booths.

Cons

I had no adverse opinions regarding this software.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

My request was addressed and the representative took the time to listen to my needs and fully explain what the platform could do and what it could not do. They were willing to work with me and provide a training session for me and availed themselves to conduct a training session for exhibitors. Excellent customer service!

Premier Virtual is the BOMB!

Excellence! I seriously have no complaints, and will use them again if we need another virtual fair (and I expect that we will need one).

Pros

From start to finish, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] made this a great experience for us. The customer service provided by Premier Virtual is unmatched, and I've dealt with a lot of software in the past! Our students and employers loved the software and I know we will use it again. It was easy to follow, easy to navigate.

Cons

The way it "counts" people as having visited a booth or not. As it stands they have to click on a link, but some employers don't post links to click on, which makes it hard to take attendance.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

Can't remember the name of the other software we looked at, I just know it was over 120% more in cost than Premier Virtual!

Response from Premier Virtual

Replied April 2021

Hello Brenda, you've made us blush! :) Getting a 10/10 score is something we strive for with every client but getting that is obviously quite an achievement for us, that we take a lot of pride in.

Hire Up Event

Excellent customer service and support. We had a very awesome experience and will continue to use Premier Virtual in the future!

Pros

What I love most about Premier Virtual is of a job seeker visits an employer's customized booth, and they are busy with another job seeker, the recruiter can go and find the job seeker in the event to strike up a conversation.

Cons

I would like the recruiters to be able to talk to each other within the booth via the platform.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

Cost through tecna membership and their amazing customer service. They were able to set up our event quickly and efficiently.

Excellent Platform and Great Support

The PV team was excellent to work with. Outstanding communication and transparency during the product vetting/demo process, quickly answered all of our questions, and very open to receiving constructive feedback and "want list" items for future development of the platform.

Pros

The software is easy to use, quick to set up events, lots of great features for both employers and job seekers, and user interface looks great.

Cons

Resumes only in PDF (can be tough for some job seekers to get access to tech to convert). More data analytics for reporting needed (but may be coming?). More flexibility in selecting/programming questions (also coming in latest release?).

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

Overall number of features offered, flexibility/ease of use, interface look, and tech support/communication offered for a competitive price-point.

Hello Don, thank you for your candid feedback. PDF resumes can be a challenge for some, and we have not given up on creating an option for other formats.

Easy to use and cost effective!

We had a great experience with this platform especially with the cost associated. We were managing a nonprofit so our budget was extremely tight. This worked great as a virtual platform for our needs at the time.

Pros

The main reason we went with this platform is price. It is much cheaper than other competitors but doesn't offer as many features as the others. Well worth the money if you're on a tight budget though.

Cons

You can't completely customize your event's landing page. The chat functionality is a little clunky but works just fine. Not as many features as other platforms.

Cost and easy of use.

Easy to use and feature freindly virtual job fair platform.

We have had great success in using Premier Virtual for our online job fairs. They have been incredibly responsive for the Florida Workforce Boards. This platform has been directly linked to helping us decrease our unemployment in Palm Beach County.

Pros

Being able to quickly train staff, users and job seekers on this platform.

Cons

We would like Premier Virtual to interface and connect directly with Employ Florida. The state of Florida's employment database. Having job seekers double register in Employ Florida and Premier Virtual is sometimes a deal breaker for virtual job fair registration.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

Easier product team to work with and more responsive to our needs.

Great Value for the Money

Glen was super helpful and worked with us every step of the way.

Pros

This product was soooo easy to use. Our previous job fairs had always been in-person throughout the year in different cities. This online platform allowed us to hold an event countywide in one place, allowing job seekers to attend no matter where they lived. The virtual booths featured all the same components our job seekers were used to experiencing in person, and more!

Cons

Several of our employers did not utilize the option to meet with job seekers via Zoom or another platform. This disappointed many of our job seekers. I know we cannot make this a mandatory feature, but maybe something emphasizing the importance or calling out this feature more would be helpful.

Premier Virtual is a great option for organizations that want an easy profile set up, registration, and execution of a job fair/hiring events.

Easy to set up and use

It was a very positive experience. We changed plans in a short time frame, and Premier Virtual quickly got us set up and ready to go. Everything went smoothly during the event.

Pros

I used this for a virtual career fair. Premier Virtual was very easy to set up on the administrative side and the support team always responded quickly when I had questions. I also liked the flexibility to set whatever registration fee worked best for my employers.

Cons

Nothing was difficult. There would be benefit from the development of more training resources. There are a few, but they are just basic set-up.

Reasons for Choosing Premier Virtual

The flexibility to choose what we charged an employer was very important, as well as not getting charged extra if we reached a certain number of registered employers.

AAST/EAST/SCCPDS Virtual Job Fair

Overall, I liked using Premier Virtual. Since it was the first time our association was doing something like this, this platform was the best option for us at the time. It's very cost-effective, simple to use, and the administrators from Premier Virtual were always on standby and able to assist me at any point during our Virtual Job Fair.

Pros

What I liked the most about this software is that it was extremely easy to navigate. I was a complete novice when it came to running a Virtual Job Fair, so to see how quick it was to set up a booth for recruiters, having accessible training videos and a streamlined registration process made running this event immensely simple for me.

Cons

I thought some of the features were a little too basic. I wished the platform already had a video option for recruiters, and I wished that certain parts of the recruiter booths were more customizable.

Premier Online Platform from Premier Virtual

Overall the platform is the best I have used. The support provided by Premier staff is great. The ease of being able to contact a Premier staff member with questions is fantastic. It is the best decision the organization made purchasing the Premier platform.

Pros

Cons

I feel allowing jobseekers to upload a word document will make it easier to use some clients don't understand how to create a pdf document.

Company is very professional and responsive.

Pros

Ease of setting up profile and booths. for those that are comfortable with computers.

Cons

Ability for Administrator to get in to participating vendor's booth to assist with set up. Many customers are not technically savvy or able to implement the various options like social media links, videos, etc and it would be easier if the Administrator could actually get in to the participants booth to assist.
