More information about Virtual Career Fairs

Employers register through Handshake for one or more of the career fairs listed below. Employers will be able to customize registrations (booths) similarly to how profiles are customized. You can set your schedule for 10-minute 1:1 video or text chats and 30-minute group sessions (50-student capacity for group sessions). You may use an external platform for groups larger than 50.

Employers have the opportunity to set preferences on their 1:1 chats. Registered students and alumni will be able to scroll through each fair’s list of employer attendees to review which organizations are participating, what their respective opportunities are, and what, if any, prequalifications are listed to qualify for 1:1 chats. Text based chat will be an option for students who don’t have access to video.
