This event will take place online via Zoom. Employers will be provided with a link to a Zoom meeting. A Career Services staff will be present in the Lobby of your Zoom meeting for the duration of the fair and will assign each employer representative to a breakout room (maximum of 2 breakout rooms per employer). When students enter the Zoom meeting, the Lobby Host will engage with the student to determine which employer(s) they wish to speak with and will assign the student to the appropriate breakout room where an employer representative will be waiting.

Please note that it has been our experience that the online fairs have seen lower student attendance than in-person events. However, the quality of student – employer engagement remains high and many meaningful connections have been made.
