How do I prepare?

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.
