About two weeks before the fair, start planning. Decide what time you want to attend, building in extra time in case you have to wait to chat with popular employers. You'll also want to make time to work on your resume and elevator pitch and research employers. Make sure to:
Research attending organizations and draft questions you'd like to ask.
Review the chat schedule. Plan which employer chats you'll attend and what questions you'll ask. You can enter three chat rooms at a time.
Plan to virtually attend How to Prep for the Virtual Fair (date TBD).
When you speak with employers at the fair, you want to give a short pitch that sets you apart and quickly summarizes your skills and interest in their organization.
Want some help with your pitch? Attend our online workshop, Explain Yourself! - Networking/Elevator Pitches Presentation & Q&A on Wednesday, May 13 from 12-1 p.m.
We recommend dressing professionally for the virtual fair. Employer representatives may request a private video chat. Dressing as if you were attending the fair in person will also help you feel more confident.
