How Do Virtual Fairs Work?

Through Handshake's virtual fair platform, you'll be able to sign up for 30 minute-group sessions and 1:1 ten-minute sessions with employers that interest you. Be sure to sign up for these sessions early, so you're guaranteed a spot! You can interact with recruiters through text, audio, and videoconferencing, so we recommend dressing to impress and testing your device's AV settings before the fair.

To learn more, watch Handshake's how-to video below. For tips to prepare for the fair, check out Handshake's article, Top Ten Tips for a Virtual Fair. 


We can’t wait to (virtually) see you at the fair! Questions? Contact Katie Hankins, event and recruitment coordinator, at hankins@ohio.edu
