Like many areas of campus, Career Services fall events are going to look a little different this year. Due to social distancing on campus, travel restrictions at many recruiting organizations, and the health and safety of our campus community, Career Services will host our fall career fair virtually.
The virtual fair will be held on the platform Career Fair Plus; the same career fair app students have been using for the past 5 years. Career Fair Plus allows students to schedule times to meet with recruiters causing less disruption to their course schedule.
To allow for student and recruiter flexibility, we have added a second career fair date. The fair dates are Sept. 23 and 24. In the coming months, Career Services will conduct training and demos for both students and employers, so when the big day arrives, everyone will be ready to hit the ground running.
We have also pivoted our traditional Industry Days into a few different virtual events, including a Partners Only Preview Fair on Sept. 9, for our corporate partner companies typically present at the Industry Days.
Companies will also host information sessions, networking events and more via our virtual platforms. We will also continue to host our events for resume reviews, interview prep and virtual career fair tips.
