How the Virtual Career Fairs work
Virtual Career Fairs on Handshake give you the opportunity to meet recruiters and other employees through video sessions to gather information, network, and seek internship and career opportunities.
Attending video sessions, instead of an in-person fair, means there is no waiting in line to talk to recruiters. When you register for a virtual career fair on Handshake, you sign up for specific session times—securing your spot to meet with the employers you’re interested in.
There are two types of virtual fair sessions:
Group sessions. During these 30-minute sessions you’ll join other students to meet the employer. You’ll learn about job and internship opportunities, company culture, and more. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask your own questions.
One-on-one sessions. These 10-minute sessions are an opportunity to chat directly with an employer about jobs and internships. Recruiters that want to meet you will be able to invite you to attend virtual sessions with them.
Recruiters will likely review your profile before a session, so be sure to update your Handshake profile with your role and location preferences, as well as skills, organizations, and work experience!
