Register for the virtual fair by using your Handshake account beginning September 9. The entire fair will happen on-line, via the Handshake site. Virtual career fairs on Handshake give you the opportunity to meet recruiters and other employees through video sessions. You’ll learn more about employers hiring at U.T. and connect with companies that will want to hire you.
Attending video sessions, instead of an in-person fair, means there is no waiting in line to talk to recruiters. When you register, you will sign up for specific session times—securing your spot to meet with the employers you’re interested in. There are two types of virtual fair sessions:
Group sessions: During these 30-minute sessions you’ll join other students to meet recruiters and other employees at the organization. You’ll learn about job and internship opportunities, company culture, and more. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask your own questions.
One-on-one sessions: This is an opportunity to chat directly with a recruiter or employee ambassador about jobs and internships. Recruiters that want to meet you will be able to invite you to attend virtual sessions with them, or you can sign up for sessions that have availability. You must meet employer criteria for 1:1 sessions.
Recruiters will likely review your profile before a session, so be sure to update your Handshake profile with your role and location preferences, as well as GPA, skills, organizations, and work experience! In many cases, recruiters will set qualifications for students so they are able to best connect with students who meet their organization's needs. Make sure your profile is complete and detailed.
PRO-TIP: CNS does not automatically include your GPA when your initial profile is created. We strongly recommend you complete this and all other fields so you are able to connect with more employers who might set this field as a requirement for their 1:1 sessions.
