    September 12, 2022

    The annual Virtual Engineering Career Fair is just around the corner! We’ve created this guide to help you prep for and navigate the event.

    1. Review and sign the annual Recruiting Policy Agreement. You’ll learn about important policies for participating in events with employers.
    2. Update your Handshake profile to be visible to Employers. This will allow you to register for 1:1 chats with employers. PLUS, employers will have an opportunity to search student profiles and reach out to YOU first.
    3. Register for the Career Fair before the event.
    4. Once registered, review the list of employers participating in the fair. Build a schedule in advance of the fair by signing up for 1:1 and group sessions of interest.
    5. Make a plan for how you want to spend the 10 minutes you’d have to chat with a company rep during scheduled 1:1 conversations.
