About the Virtual Career Fair + Internship Fair
You’ll have a chance to connect with employers from diverse industries who are looking for your skill-sets, experience, and knowledge and learn more about their companies, what they are looking for, and how to stand out in the hiring process. We strongly recommend you research companies who will be attending prior to the event to be best prepared to converse.

- 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.
