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.
