At a Handshake virtual career fair, you will have two different ways to connect directly with employers:

  • Five 30-minute group meetings that accommodate up to 50 students each. Multiple recruiters can attend, talk with students, and share their screen.
  • 10-minute 1:1 meetings with students hosted by up to 15 recruiters. Each recruiter can set their own schedule and choose qualifications students must meet to attend.

To ensure that your experience is as amazing as possible, Handshake asked students and employers what they liked and didn't like about their past virtual career fair experiences—and they designed their new platform to meet all your expectations.
