    HOW TO PREPARE FOR A VIRTUAL JOB FAIR 

    Follow these steps to get the most from your virtual job fair experience:

    • Register in advance and download the Zoom app on your computer or mobile device in advance so you'll be ready on the day of the event
    • Update your resume if needed, and write up your “elevator speech” or professional introduction. Practice it to feel confident in how you describe yourself and what you are looking for.
    • Research the participating employers, and explore which are likely to hire people with your skills and background.
    • Develop a “plan of attack” for your time at the virtual job fair; choose your top priority employers to meet with, and focus your time on connecting with them.
    • Make a list of questions for employers. Ask about how they recruit and hire people with your skill set.
    • Dress professionally down to your shoes. Although you are online, doing a thorough job dressing professionally will affect your mindset and how you present yourself, and prevents any unanticipated wardrobe mishaps.
    • In conversations, be sure to get contact information to follow up. After your conversation, make note of details discussed and any contacts mentioned.
    • After the job fair, send a thank-you e-mail to contacts you met with. Mention a detail to remind them who you are and any points you discussed. Thank them for their time and ask about next steps.
