Screen Shot 2021-06-22 at 12.57.27 PMThe video displays how you will join ‘chat queues’ during the fair to meet virtually 1-on-1 with employers during the fair in external virtual meetings. The employer’s meeting link will be viewable, and the employer will contact you when it is your turn to meet.

Screen Shot 2021-06-22 at 12.58.44 PMWe recommend joining more than one queue at a time to maximize your networking and interviewing during the fair, as there will be several attendees waiting in each employer queue for their turn.

We recommend that you follow up after each employer virtual meeting session by writing notes about your conversation. You can refer to these notes after the fair and send quick thank you emails or follow up with the employer.
