Virtual Career Fair Set Up & Troubleshooting

Virtual Career Fair Schedule Setup
Once registration is approved, you will be asked to share the number of representatives who plan to attend the career fair. Each representative must have a Handshake user account.

Each representative who registers will be able to create their own unique schedule to meet with students. 

  • If your company/representatives do not build your schedule(s), students will not be able to sign up to meet with you! 

To learn more about this process, we encourage you to view this Handshake-hosted training webinar. 1:1 sessions are preferred to group sessions. This is because, for group sessions, students must enter the session by the start time or they will not be able to get into the session.

Please have your schedules/sessions set in Handshake by FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18.

Students will begin signing up for sessions on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21.

Request your next day on-campus interview(s)

You have the option to participate in next day on-campus interviews. Interviews will take place March 1-4.

  • We will not be accommodating same-day interviews (examples: you attend the fair and want to host on-campus interviews in afternoon, or have a separate table to interview during the career fair event).
  • Interviews will begin at 8:30am (employer check in at 8:00am) and conclude at 4:00pm.
  • Interview timeslots will run in 30-minute increments.
