Attending a Career Fair in Person - Plan to dress business professional or business casual; Bring copies of your resume; prepare your elevator pitch.

Signing up for Virtual Interview –
Group sessions will have a custom title and indicate a length of 30 minutes, and 1:1 sessions are indicated by EMPLOYER NAME and are 10 minutes each. If multiple divisions (departments) from the company have registered, the group session title may include the division name for clarity! Click on the session name you'd like to sign up for.
Click on the name of the fair you'd like to participate in. Right above the listed Contact's information, there are three tabs:
  • Available sessions - click this tab to review available employer sessions
  • Your schedule - once you've signed up for at least one session, this is where the session details are listed (and how you'll join the session when it starts)
  • Career fair details -the default tab that loads with fair setup details
If you click the Register, a confirmation popup will appear on your screen –– click View employer sessions. Clicking "View employer sessions"; will take you to the Available Sessions. You can return to this tab anytime to register for more sessions, even during the fair!
When you locate an employer that you'd like to sign up for a session with, look for the session information to appear below the employer name and description.


Things to look out for…
Review the information, and if you'd like to proceed, click Confirm to sign up. If a Group Session is at capacity, it will not appear in the list any longer, so if it's listed, that means there is still availability. You can sign up for only 1 session per recruiter –– to sign up with another recruiter, click on "One on One with EMPLOYER NAME" again, select your preferred session. If there's a red dot to the right of a session start time, that indicates you are currently signed up for a different session. To sign up for this session, you'd need to cancel the existing session sign-up.
