Need a reason to attend the Virtual Career Expo?

Updated: Jan 26, 2023

The Spring & Fall Career Expos are our largest networking and recruiting events of the entire academic year. If that is not reason enough, we have come up with 5 reasons to attend this semester's Virtual Career Expo...honestly there are dozens of reasons BUT let's start with these 5!

#1: With anywhere from 70-140 employers attending across so many different industries there is truly something for everyone. Whether you are searching for an internship, full-time position, or exploring careers & employers, the expo is the place to be! Review the employers attending the expo.

#2: Many of the employers attending the expo have posted positions for full-time &/or internships. You can select full-time or internship in the filter options when reviewing the employers attending! Attend a group session & learn about current & upcoming opportunities directly from a recruiter or an Individual 1:1 & share what skills you can bring to a potential position.

#3: There is no better way to demonstrate that you are a great fit for a position than getting to pitch your skills and qualifications directly to a recruiter. Bring your resume to life and connect with recruiters in 1:1 sessions! Practice your pitch beforehand. Use this to help

#4: Individual/1:1 & group sessions are the only way to interact with employers during the expo. Attend a 1:1 session to meet directly with an employer (do this if you are interested in an open position!) OR a group session to learn more about the company & opportunities. Check out the "Available Sessions" tab on the expo page in Handshake & add sessions!

#5: No long lines, no waiting, no seriously - being virtual means you can schedule your sessions & meet with the employers you want to! If you act now, you can build a full schedule with sessions and meet with all of the employers you are interested in!

So have you registered yet? Well get to it! Register for the Virtual Career Expo and start preparing!

Attend our Career Expo Prep Event (Find date, location and event details on the Handshake Events tab) to test out the platform, elevate your resume, research employers & practice your pitch before the actual expo.

Also review our Virtual Career Expo Comprehensive Guide to fully prepare & check out our Career Expo Prep resource tile in Handshake!
