Handshake: How to Prepare Questions for Virtual Career Fairs

The 2024 Virtual Spring Fair is tomorrow, 4/25! There is still time to sign up for sessions in Handshake – check out the list of employers and register on Handshake.

One of the best things you can do ahead of any virtual event is to prepare a few talking points to succinctly make the case about why you’re a great candidate. The employers that you meet with want to learn more about you! So think of a short overview about your background, studies, and career goals. Practice with a friend or family member ahead of the virtual fair so you’re ready when it’s time to introduce yourself to a recruiter. Read Handshake’s blog post to find tips for how to prepare an elevator pitch.
