Need a reason to attend the Fall 2021 Virtual Career Expo?
Updated: Sep 16
The Fall Career Expo is our largest networking and recruiting event of the entire academic year. If that is not reason enough, we have come up with 5 reasons to attend this year's Fall 2021 Virtual Career Expo...honestly there are dozens of reasons BUT let's start with these 5!
#1: With 130 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 details about current & upcoming opportunities directly from a recruiter. Attend a 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: 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 go to a group session to learn more about the company and opportunities. Check out the Available Sessions tab on the expo page in Handshake and start adding sessions!
#5: No long lines, no waiting, no traveling...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 1:1 & group sessions and meet with all of the employers you are interested in!
