Career Communications Group held a successful Virtual Career Fair on March 20. Leading up to the event, a portal was set up to connect job seekers with hiring representatives before the start of the fall recruitment season to discuss summer and full-time opportunities in engineering or computer science. Employers and students were able to engage remotely via one-on-one web chat, make new connections, and broaden their networks from their home locations.

After logging in and joining the event, users were asked to upload their resumes. Next, they chose which employers to engage in a one-on-one chat with a representative—like choosing which booth to visit in a physical career fair. Then, job seekers were asked to provide highlights of their resume and career interests and ask questions about the company. Following each interview, users could select additional employers to engage with until the virtual career fair was over.

Before all that, users had to create an account, complete the registration form, view information about participating organizations and opportunities, and then, log in and join the chat from any device.
