Make the Most of your Virtual Fair Experience

1. What can I expect from a virtual career fair?

It’s important to remember, virtual career fairs are just like traditional ones, where employers gather to meet with job seekers and discuss employment opportunities. The only difference here is that it’s held virtually on an interactive platform. Virtual career fairs are like online discussion posts. Employers in virtual career fairs are there because they are eager to hire and want to engage with potential candidates. In many ways, virtual career fairs mirror traditional, in-person ones.

Nowadays, employers often screen candidates using phone or virtual interviews prior to conducting an in-person interview. As a result, they save time and money, and can diversify their pool of candidates. It can be appealing to candidates who have limited time and resources for travel. Now, more than ever before, employers will be using this model exclusively. The Virtual Career & Internship Fair will better prepare students and alumni for these rapid changes.

It is easy to feel nervous or intimidated at the prospect of meeting recruiters. What should I say? How should I dress? Is my resume up to par? Career Development & Alumni Engagement (CDAE) staff have resources available to help you prepare:
