Virtual Job Fair Best Practices for Students

  1. Internet Explorer is no longer supported. Please use another browser.

  2. Come to the fair ready to connect with employers to see what opportunities they are offering, and be prepared with general or specific questions.

  3. When joining an employer chat, instead of downloading Zoom, GoToMeeting, etc., select the option to join the meeting online and it will be faster to join.

  4. As long as you are in a "queue", please stay in the Virtual Career Fair so you do not miss any employer chat requests (which pop up in a separate window).

  5. Make sure you click the “Attend” button so that you can join chats.

  6. Before the fair, mark your favorite employers by clicking on the “Interested” star icon, so that they will display at the top of your list.

  7. Log into your Jobs Database account before the fair to make sure you have the most updated resume uploaded to the virtual fair and that your “Chat Profile” is current.

  8. You can use the Notes field after each chat, before you join the next, to jot down key information about the employer you just chatted with.
