Handshake Virtual Platform


Meet with employers looking to hire for internship and full-time opportunities, and/or explore careers! Virtual career fairs are online 'events' that allow employers and students to meet in virtual environments, including video, audio, or text chat rooms:

  • Sign up for 1:1 meetings with representatives to introduce yourself and express interest in a position. These are on a first-come, first-served basis!
  • Join group sessions for employers who have them to learn more about organizations, opportunities, and various career paths and ask questions. 
  • Career Explorers – explore various career paths and build your professional networks by meeting with employers interested in engaging with you. 
  • Do this all from the comfort of your room! No lines, no travel, no parking hassle!!
