WATCH OUR MAKING THE MOST OF A VIRTUAL CAREER FAIR WORKSHOP

This training walks you through how to schedule and chat with employers via the LionSHARE powered by Handshake career fair platform.

EXPECT VIDEO CHATS

Chats will be primarily video. One-on-one sessions are 10 minutes. Group sessions are up to 30 minutes.

  • Use Google Chrome or Firefox so that your video chat will function properly. Make sure your browser is updated.
    • You can test your video before the fair goes live. Do this in advance of your first session so that you’re all set to chat with employer representatives.
    • Here is a troubleshooting guide in case you have any video or audio issues during the virtual fair.

UPDATE YOUR RESUME AND CONSIDER MAKING IT PUBLIC

  • Update your resume and add it to your LionSHARE profile.
  • We encourage you to set your LionSHARE profile to public for employers to view your documents.
    • This way, the employer representatives will be able to see your resume while you’re chatting. They will also be able to download it after the event!

SEE WHICH ORGANIZATIONS ARE ATTENDING AND RESEARCH THEM

  • Research the companies attending ahead of time so that you can have productive conversations at the event.
