Make a Great Impression Virtually

If you haven’t been to a virtual career fair before, check out the list of tips and tricks below to make a great first, virtual impression! 

  • Have your resume on hand during the fair: You’ll only have about 10 minutes or so to chat, so make sure you can answer any and all questions about your previous experience and strengths quickly and efficiently.  
  • Show them you did your homework: Check out the companies and open positions ahead of time (see the logo array above!). Really wow the HR reps by speaking to the company and positions you’re interested in.
  • Grammar and spelling matter: While instant messaging can feel a lot more informal than sitting in a conference room for an interview, this is still an opportunity to show your professionalism. Double check your spelling and punctuation before hitting send! 
  •  Dress for the part: Even though this is virtual and will mainly take place via chat, employers have the option to request to switch to video if they’d like to speak face-to-face. Plus–dressing professionally will give you that extra boost of confidence!
  • Ask your HR rep an intentional question: Here’s your chance to shine! Time is precious during a virtual career fair, so make sure your question is original, intentional, and ACTUALLY something you’re curious about. HR reps spend hours asking questions via chat during a virtual career fair, so asking your own can give them a little break while also showing you’re seriously interested in the company.
  • Make sure you have access to WiFi: The entire event will take place on the Brazen platform online, so please ensure you have a strong internet connection during the fair.
