Career Fairs are right around the corner! We highly recommend checking out these tips to help you prep! Be sure to register in advance and check out more information about the fairs on Handshake and the Career Center website’s Career Events & Recruitment section!

Before the Career Fair!

  • Register online through Handshake for reminders and access to information about the fair.
  • Check out the list of registered employers and make a list of who you would like to visit.
  • Get your resume reviewed at the Career Center during our in-person drop-ins.
  • Make an appointment or use online resources to practice your interviewing & networking skills.
  • Download the Handshake app for quick and easy check-in the day of the fair.
  • Print out copies of your resume to hand out to employers.

During the Career Fair!

  • Check in at one of the three student check-in booths using the QR codes available.
    • RSVP is not required and in the event of connection issues check-in will be written.
  • Scan the QR code available to access the map and list of employers during the fair.
    • This QR code will be available throughout the fair’s layout in a-frame signs.
  • As you move about the fair, scan the employer QR codes hanging on the booth.
    • What do the codes do? By scanning the code on an employer booth, you are added to their list of students that visited. Your account and details you choose to share are made available so that they can reach out regarding their company and events.
  • Network with employers from your prepared list and visit with employers that are new to you!
