You create your own schedule. You do not have to attend all sessions. You choose based on your interests and availability. Group sessions are usually 30 minutes long, and some employers may host multiple offerings for your convenience. Most one-on-one sessions are only 10 minutes long. You may attend as many sessions as you like, as long as schedule times don’t overlap.
In order to sign up for sessions with employers, you must first register for the fair. For details on this process, please see Handshake’s instructions for Signing up For Virtual Fair Sessions.
Multiple students can attend group sessions. These sessions are 30 minutes long and are typically set up like an information session. One-on-one sessions are between you and the recruiter. These sessions are 10 minutes long and give you a chance to connect more directly with the organizations’ representatives.
You may reserve a Loeb Center interview room during our office’s working hours (weekdays between 8:30 am – 4:30 pm) for this purpose. Email your request, including date, time, and approximate length of the interview, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
