How to be Prepared  

Now that you’ve decided to go, you'll want to do more than just show up! You’ll want to make sure you’re ready to get the most out of it! Here are our top tips!  

Have a copy of your resume available for viewing or sending.

Put in some work to get your resume in order before attending the event! Make sure you’re in a place with stable WIFI.

Make sure you’re on a stable WIFI connection.

Nothing would be worse than cutting out midway with someone during an interview! If you don’t have internet service at home, arrange to use resources at the school either in a computer lab or by using  the campus WIFI network.  

Arrive Early  

Arriving early will allow you to talk with all the employers you want to speak with without feeling rushed!

Ask for Contact Information  

Once you've given your elevator pitch, make sure to seal the deal by giving them a copy of your resume and asking for contact information so you can keep in touch. 

Follow up with Employers  

After the Virtual Career Fair, follow up with employers whose contact information you received. This will show the employer you're interested in them and what they have to offer. Career advisors are happy to help you with these emails!
