We’re so excited about the WWR Remote Job Fair of 2022, and we hope you’re just as pumped!

This year’s going to be the first async remote job fair, which means you can join and interact with the top remote companies wherever you are, any time you want.

So to make sure you get the most out of our action-packed event, we’re diving into everything you need to know beforehand, such as:

  • What you can do at the 2022 WWR Remote Job Fair
  • How to register for it (psst -- it’s free!)
  • Using the venue like you’ve been there before
  • An event lineup to sync with your calendar 
  • Which remote companies will have virtual booths
  • … and lots more!

Let’s kick off our job fair guide with an event rundown:

What is the We Work Remotely Remote Job Fair?

Our remote job fair allows job seekers to meet and get to know the best remote companies in the world that are currently hiring.

The venue’s virtual doors will be open March 16, 17, and 18, 2022.

During this time, attendees can explore workshops, panels, and virtual booths created by the top remote companies hiring. 

Each company’s booth will have details about their organization, relevant information for job seekers, and the ability to chat with and answer questions from attendees.

Though the main events (workshops and panels) will take place on March 17, attendees will be able to interact with these companies through March 18, all thanks to asynchronous communication.

What Is an
Async Remote Job Fair?

Asynchronous communication allows more people to work when they want, from wherever they want. And we wanted the same for our 2022 Remote Job Fair! 

So we decided to go full async for the very first time, allowing more people to join and enjoy the job fair whenever it works best for them.

With this async switch, registered attendees can:

  • Join from anywhere in the world whenever it’s most convenient.

  • Ask questions beforehand, so you don’t have to do so “live.”

  • Interact with remote companies whenever you want.

  • Enjoy pre-recorded workshops and panels, and re-watch them when it’s best for you (until March 25).

So no matter when you can squeeze in the time to attend our job fair, all the valuable information and actionable intel will be there waiting for you.

Speaking of that, here’s what we have in store for our attendees:

During the First Async Remote Job Fair, You Will:

1. Learn the exact skills you need to successfully apply for the remote job of your dreams and increase your chances of landing it.

2. Interact with leading remote companies from across the globe during our three-day event. You can thoughtfully prepare and send messages at the time that works for you, then reps from those companies will reply when it works for them.

3. Get your questions answered about remote work, applying to remote roles, and interviewing remotely, so you’re 100% prepared when the time comes. Head over to We Work Remotely’s social media to ask your questions, then we’ll answer them during the workshops and panels that go live on March 17.

4. Watch pre-recorded workshops and panels (for up to a week after the job fair!). Since we really want you to take advantage of the knowledge our instructors and panelists will share, we’re not putting a 24- or 48-hour time limit on how long you can catch a replay. You’ll have until March 25 to watch and soak up all this intel.

5. Meet the top remote companies hiring. Get to know these stellar organizations in the remote hiring world and see if your values align with their company missions. Learn more about their company culture, core values, ways of working remotely, etc., to determine whether they’re the right fit for you.
