Technology like Tallo is available to help facilitate connections and drive businesses forward. Check out our resources to find out how you can stay connected in this ever-changing landscape of the coronavirus pandemic.
What is the Coronavirus?
Since emerging in China in December 2019, the coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused a global health emergency, sickening people worldwide and leading to thousands of deaths. The impact has been felt around the world as classes, sporting events, conferences, job fairs, and other large-scale events have been canceled to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Learn more from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
What can colleges do to continue recruiting efforts?
In-person recruitment has come to a standstill with the cancellation of college fairs and admission receptions. Students and colleges alike are missing out on opportunities to see and be seen. This means it’s time to completely rethink how, who, and where you recruit.
How can student organizations engage virtually?
Whether your in-person event is a regional competition, state-wide conference, or a national festival, it’s time to start thinking through a contingency plan and prepare to move it online. Don’t let students miss out on social, professional, and educational activities that can help them build their resumes, sharpen skills, and showcase their work/talent.
How can companies continue connecting with talent?
With canceled job fairs, career fairs, and in-person networking events, it’s time to take your recruiting efforts online. Not only can this lead to a more efficient interviewing process, but it’s also a great way to meet Gen Z where they want to meet you.

How has the coronavirus impacted students? We asked, they answered.

What do you do when student events are cancelled?

HOSA-Future Health Professionals and Tallo have a creative solution to help.
