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 in Handshake. Employers will set their schedule for 10-minute 1:1 video or text chats with students and 30-minute group sessions (currently 30-minute 50-student capacity group sessions within the Handshake platform; employers may use an external platform for groups larger than 50). 

Employers have the opportunity to set preferences on their 1:1 meetings. Registered students 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.
