- Need a little help to secure your spot? No worries! We have a handy article on signing up for sessions.
How do I prepare for a virtual job fair?
First things first, make sure your resume is uploaded to your profile! Employers will want to see your resume, and the only way for them to access it is through your Handshake profile. For assistance check out our snappy 1-minute video on resume uploading. Next, dress to impress, just as you would in person! Make a plan for the employers you would like to connect with, but be open to learning from companies you may be less familiar with. Lastly, test your audio and video before the big day. You would not want any technical glitches to steal your spotlight! And remember, when it is showtime, turn on that camera to make a memorable impression during meetings.
