Employers: Prepare for the Fall Career Fair!

Although career fairs may look different this year, we are no less excited for you to connect with DePaul students and alumni! Employers, prepare yourself for success at our upcoming virtual fairs by following these steps:

1. Set up your sessions schedule 

This virtual fair will take place entirely on Handshake

All Handshake virtual fairs have two options for employer-student engagement:

  • 30 minute Info Sessions
  • 10 minute 1:1 Sessions

At this time, these are the only options for Handshake virtual fairs.  

***This means you MUST set up your sessions schedule in order to participate.***  


2. Test your video today

Handshake Virtual Fairs include a robust video chat platform.  Data from our previous virtual career fair indicates that students want to meet with employers via video!  

Handshake uses Twilio for their video hosting.  


If your company’s firewall does not allow you to use Handshake/Twilio’s video, you may use your own (Zoom, GoToMeeting, Skype, etc).  Please test your video in advance to see if this is required for you.  

 *It is your responsibility to test your own video in advance of the career fair and to make adjustments as needed.*

3. Prepare yourself + your team!

4. Visit the Zoom Help Room during the Fall Career Fair!
