TLU’s Career Development Services Office has been planning new ways to help students prepare for the job search and connect with employers virtually. This fall, they are partnering with
Handshake to run virtual career fairs for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Career fairs are a great way to get a leg up with companies that interest you. A virtual format will enhance the experience, allowing students to:
- Meet with employers. Interact with recruiters through video, audio, or chat.
- Discover new career opportunities. Get personalized recommendations based on your Handshake profile for which employers to connect with.
- Never wait in line, ever. Pre-schedule 1:1 or group sessions with employers ahead of the fair or on the day-of.
- Make an impression. Bring your unique perspective to the table, ask great questions, and follow up with recruiters after the fair.
Over the next several weeks, TLU Career Development send out more information to students about registration and how to use Handshake to navigate a virtual career fair. In the meantime, check out Handshake’s Get Hired Remotely Series for more resources on conducting a virtual job search.
