What is a Virtual Career Fair?

Virtual career fairs on Handshake give you the opportunity to meet recruiters and other employees through video sessions. You’ll learn more about employers hiring at UT and connect with companies that will want to hire you.

Attending video sessions, instead of an in-person fair, means there is no waiting in line to talk to recruiters. When you register, you will sign up for specific session times—securing your spot to meet with the employers you’re interested in. There are two types of virtual fair sessions:

Group sessions: During these sessions you’ll join other students to meet recruiters and other employees at the organization. You’ll learn about job and internship opportunities, company culture, and more. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask your own questions.

PRO-TIP: Your profile privacy settings must be set to “Community” to participate in group sessions. If you prefer more private profile settings, we suggest you set your profile to “Community” for the fair and then switch it back to “Employer” or “Private” after.

One-on-one sessions: This is an opportunity to chat directly with a recruiter or employee ambassador about jobs and internships. Recruiters that want to meet you will be able to invite you to attend virtual sessions with them, or you can sign up for sessions that have availability. You must meet employer criteria for 1:1 sessions.

PRO-TIP: Your profile privacy settings must be set to “Employer” OR “Community” to participate in 1:1 sessions.

Recruiters will likely review your profile before a session, so be sure to update your Handshake profile  with your role and location preferences, as well as GPA, skills, organizations, and work experience! In many cases, recruiters will set qualifications for students so they are able to best connect with students who meet their organization’s needs. Make sure your profile is complete and detailed.

PRO-TIP: UT does not automatically include your GPA when your initial profile is created. We strongly recommend you complete this and all other fields so you are able to connect with more employers.

Registration Process

To claim your spot at the virtual fair for September 30, click the Register button on the top right corner of this page. You will see a list of the sessions you can sign up for with each employer. This page also includes filters and search, so you can narrow down the sessions and find the ones you want to sign up for.

When you find a session that you want to attend, click the link and you’ll see a window pop up with available times. Select the time you want to attend, and click Confirm. You may attend as many sessions as you like, as long as their schedule times don’t overlap.

PRO-TIP: Some employers’ schedules may change and new employers may be added. We suggest you check back frequently for updates and additions to scheduling.
