This Week: Annual Fall Career Fair
This week is a big week on campus with our Annual Fall Career Fair (new window) taking place virtually on Friday, September 17 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. This is our largest career fair of the year and we are excited to connect you with nearly 75 different organizations from a variety of industries!
We will host big names like EY, Peace Corps and Teach for America attend, while we will also host new employers to campus including Red Ventures (a marketing & Technology company), International Rescue Committee (non-profit that assists war refugees), and the Alliance for Catholic Education.
Keep in mind that virtual career fairs work differently than in-person career fairs. You must register for both the fair AND for individual sessions with employers (new window) to participate. See below for further instructions on how to participate.**

**How Virtual Career Fairs Work
Virtual career fairs work differently than in-person career fairs. Participating is a three-step process:
1) First, you’ll need to register for the fair itself. (new window)(If you have not logged into Handshake before, use your standard NetID/Password logon.
2) Then register for time slots. Employers will set up either 10-minute, 1:1 slots to speak directly with students or 30-minute, group information sessions. Employers determine which types of interactions are available; you can register for whatever is open and available based on your time commitments.
3) Log on and interact! At the time of the fair, logon and follow the appointments slots you have registered for from the comfort of your own space! Remember – this is your time to learn more about the company, what they do, and what openings they have. So come prepared with questions!
