UNL Career Services is excited to host spring career fairs virtually through Handshake’s career fair platform. The Career Fair From Home Prep Event is designed to help UNL students get ready to have the most successful virtual Career Fair experiences possible.

After a brief introduction, students may join any of the below Zoom Room sessions to hear from and visit with Career Coaches and employer representatives to learn virtual career fair basics, strategies, and best practices. Each session (except for the introduction session) repeats every 15 minutes, so students may join each session in no particular order. Following an hour of  these sessions, a 25-minute Employer Panel session will begin which will include an open Q&A time.

Join us for the following Live Zoom Room sessions to learn about any of the topics listed below.
