ATP's Live Chats are online video presentations with special guests who take questions by text chat. Participants log in and watch the live video of the presenter and interact via a chat window by using the Live Chat Page.
Virtual Job Fairs use the same interactive interface to bring one or more school districts and their representatives, live, to participants who can interact via a chat window. Many working relationships between educators and administrators have been forged during ATP Virtual Job Fairs, and have even been known to lead to a job offers. ATP staff provide technical help online and via audio.
