A Virtual Job Fair: Don’t Attend One Until You Read This

Attending a virtual job fair can make the process even easier. 

Whether you’re looking for your first job after graduation, pursuing new career opportunities, or need a better job, here are the tips you need to make the most out of a virtual job fair. 

Research the Companies That Are Attending

Look at their career page to see what job openings they have. What positions sound appealing? What qualifications and skills are they looking to recruit? What else about these jobs do you want to learn? 

Register for the Job Fair

For a virtual career fair, it’s also helpful to become familiar with the platform or software before the event. Registering ahead of time gives you the chance to acquaint yourself and test it out. 

Clarify Your Goals

Are you attending because you need a job as soon as possible? Do you want to learn more about a specific company or industry? Are you expanding your network? 

Strategize & Prioritize

Once you’ve defined your goals, make a list of the top employers you must meet and a secondary list of those that would be nice to meet (if time permits).
