Virtual Career Fair Information

Once your registration is approved in Handshake, we highly recommend you begin by reading through Handshake’s employer guide checklist.

You can schedule 30-minute group meetings and 10-minute 1:1 meetings with our students and recent graduates. If you’d like to host a group meeting for more than 50 students during the fair, you’ll be able to enter an external video meeting link and host the meeting in the system of your choice. This short, 9-minute video will walk you through setting up schedules.

Prepare your virtual setup for the fair by reviewing the Handshake Video Requirements and Troubleshooting guide for employers.  

Helpful Tips
You are strongly encouraged to post your jobs in Handshake to ensure they are visible to candidates prior to the Career Fair. Postings are active for 60 days.

IMPORTANT note about majors
Include all CSE majors you are willing to hire. Students often search for organizations based on those hiring in their major. It's important to think of all possible majors that may be a fit to broaden the talent pool with qualified candidates.
