Want to Stand Out During Virtual Career Fairs? The CSE Has a Guide for That!

Are you attending Brandeis University’s 2021 Technology and Innovation Virtual Career Fair tomorrow? If the answer is “yes,” have you met with your Career Coach, registered for sessions and researched companies? Or do you still need to prepare and aren’t sure how to begin?

No matter where you are in your preparation process, you’ve come to the right place! Take a few minutes to read the CSE Virtual Career Fair Guide for easy tips and tricks to stand out during all virtual career fairs, from tomorrow’s Technology and Innovation event to those sponsored by external organizations.

The CSE Virtual Career Fair Guide covers everything from important basics (“How do I register for a one-on-one session?”) to helpful tips (Did you know that Handshake does not support virtual backgrounds, so you better tidy up that room?!) to best practices when it comes to everything from dress code to employer follow up.

While there are similarities, virtual and in-person career fairs are still two different experiences and should be treated as such. Even if you’ve been to an in-person fair before, take a few minutes to truly understand what it takes to succeed in a virtual environment.

In order to stand out from the crowd, take advantage of the CSE Virtual Career Fair Guide and make an impression at tomorrow’s event and all virtual career fairs moving forward!
