DU Virtual Career & Internship Fair

November 12 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Davenport-University-HEED-Award-2020-Thumb

We are going Virtual!

Students should attend this fair to connect with employers around the state of Michigan and beyond. Once registered, students can reserve slots to meet with employers 1:1 via Video chats through Handshake.

How do I participate?

The Fair will be hosted through Handshake’s Virtual Career Fair platform that offers students and employers short one-on-one video calls throughout the event

  1. Register for the Career Fair by clicking the “Register” button above
  2. Sign up for 1:1 Sessions with your target employers and others that are hiring students with your skillset (Career Services recommends every student schedule at least 8 sessions).

 

How do I prepare?

  • Upload your resume to your Handshake “Documents” and mark it “visible” to employers
  • Use your resume to complete your profile or complete it manually
  • Employers will be creating new schedules leading up to the Fair, so make sure you check attendees regularly leading up to the fair
  • Do your research and come prepared with questions

Day of the Fair:

 

  • Log into your account via the Handshake mobile app or a desktop/laptop. In case you experience technical issues, it may be wise to have both ready.
  • Test your video and audio prior to the start of the Fair
  • Dress code is Business Professional (head-to-toe)
  • Join your virtual 10-minute sessions on-time. Pay close attention to back-to-back sessions as not to be late.
  • It is always wise to follow-up with the employers you meet after the event. Send them a message in Handshake or email them directly if they provide contact information.

Please have a resume uploaded to Handshake and have your Handshake profile completed.  This information will be shared with employers before, during, and after the Fair.
