We know how important it is to keep certain messages at the top of your chat list for easy access. With our new Pin Messages feature, you can do just that!

You’ll soon be able to change your chat messages after they’re sent. This will be a useful feature for fixing typos or for changing your mind about what you want to say. No need to delete and retype everything.

3. New Point-And-Click Design Panel

One of the things we’re most excited about is the brand new design panel that will make creating custom chat designs easier than ever before.

From the shape and size of the chat room to the background, fonts, icons, and more – you’ll be able to point and click your way to a beautiful chat design. Plus, we’ve added some new features that will make the process even more fun and easy.

4. New Chat Skin Designs

We wanted to give our users more options that’ll help you keep your chat rooms looking fresh and updated. So, we’re finally adding a new collection of chat skins! Expect modern, clean, and stylish designs you can instantly use as is, or as a starting template to make it look and feel like your brand.

Furthermore, for advanced users, you’d still be able to customize your chat skins using CSS. This will give your developers the creative freedom to execute the look you want for your chat rooms.

5. New Set Of Emojis

Whether or not you use them, modern communication often involves Emojis or their predecessor, emoticons. They’ve even come to replace slang and acronyms—there’s no need to type LOL when you can simply send a laughing emoji.

As a universally recognized iconography, we now send them as part of our texts. And we all understand. Though they may be just sloppy shorthand at times- some researchers say that Emojis are actually improving our ability to communicate more effectively.

So, we are adding more emojis to your RumbleTalk chats! The new set includes a variety of emotions, so you can express yourself in any situation and liven up your conversations. You can enable or disable any set of emoticons anytime.

Multiple chat rooms for multiple companies in a virtual job fair

A virtual job fair is an effective means of connecting job seekers with potential employers. All while also saving companies money on their recruiting efforts.

However, one challenge that many virtual job fair organizers face is the time and expense of connecting hundreds of companies with thousands of job seekers. You’ll need an event chat room, a private chat room, file sharing tools for documents, admin functions to moderate discussions, and more.

In this article, we’ll show you how RumbleTalk can seamlessly integrate all of these features in one powerful platform.

What is a virtual job fair?

A virtual job fair is an online event that allows companies and candidates to interact with each other in real-time. With its growing popularity, plugins that support the needs of online job fair organizers are also continuously innovating. But what makes RumbleTalk different?

First, it allows you to create multiple chat rooms that will serve as company booths. Second, it has a Moderated Q&A feature, which allows you to screen messages before it goes live. Finally, it is packed with all the engagement tools and support you need for seamless operations and a flawless experience for your clients.

Why do I need multiple chat rooms for my virtual job fair?

Imagine a virtual job fair with only one public chat. How can you reach your prospects? How can potential candidates send their resumes to companies? To some, it might be pointless to attend a job fair without real-time interaction with the specific people you want to talk to.

So, RumbleTalk made a way to bridge this gap. How? By allowing organizers to create multiple chat rooms. One chat room for every company, just like a virtual booth. This is a space where candidates can come in, send in their profiles, and have one-on-one interviews with the hiring officers. It’s incredibly convenient for both the company and the candidate.

Read through the steps below to learn how to create multiple chat rooms for your virtual job fair.
