Prior to the Virtual Career Fair, access the list of employers and pick companies that interest you. Research these companies thoroughly and effectively through company websites, Linkedln, and other social media.
When you do not have to coordinate your travel, a Virtual event can slip your mind. Set calendar reminders for the day before and two hours before.
Prepare an introduction about your education, skills, and future goals. Use this guide to help you prepare. Additionally, have a digital copy available to pin to your resume digitally.
Even though you will not be traveling to meet employers, dress appropriately, and look well-groomed for a video interview. Keep in mind that your location should be distraction-free with a professional and uncluttered background.
Organize your company information and your contact information. Create a spreadsheet or chart where you can easily input information about the connections you make or the companies to which you submitted your resume.
Send thank you emails to all individuals that you made contact with.
