About the Virtual Fair

A virtual fair is an online event where graduate school programs host virtual booths with representatives from the graduate school available to talk with you either through 1:1 conversations or group sessions through voice or video chat rooms. The goal of the event is to build relationships with graduate school programs so you can explore different career fields, programs of interest, and engage with representatives about their programs and what kind of skills they are seeking in a competitive applicant.

We will be working with Career Fair Plus to host our upcoming virtual career fair, to create an intuitive, user-friendly experience for students and employers. Please download the Career Fair Plus app in preparation for the virtual fair and check out this video demo to see how it works!
