A career fair is a connection opportunity for employers who have open roles and students who are currently in the job search phase. Virtual career fairs are hosted on an online platform; the UW Career & Internship Center uses Handshake, which offers students an opportunity to connect with employers in two ways: 30-minute Group Sessions and 10-minute 1:1 Sessions. Virtual career fairs are a great way for students to meet with representatives of companies that appeal to students’ majors, interests, and goals in a virtual setting, which can be less overwhelming and more efficient than in-person career fairs.

The 2024 Virtual Summer Job & Internship Fair is open to all majors and years of study, including alumni of all three UW campuses. As of June 10 at 8am PT, registration is open to UW Seattle students and alum. Registration will open to UW Bothell and UW Tacoma students and alumni on June 14 at 8am PT.
