Navigate relationships on Handshake like a pro this fall. Bring your burning questions to our office hours.
The past year has been anything but ordinary.
With the Delta variant risking months of progress against the COVID-19 pandemic, employers are preparing for another digital-first fall. Handshake launched its virtual career fair platform last summer for this very reason—to keep employers and students safe, connected, and engaged via video, virtual one-on-ones, virtual group sessions, and more.
One year later, the benefits of virtual have proven to transcend convenience: virtual recruiting is now a key element in increasing access to jobs—especially for underrepresented students who told us that they’re more comfortable in a virtual setting. Now, employers are doubling down on virtual to build relationships with the most qualified candidates: 93% told us that they plan to recruit virtually this fall.
As you approach the busy recruiting season, set yourself apart by learning how to build authentic relationships on the largest early talent network anywhere. Sign up for an upcoming office hours session for the latest sourcing and engagement tips, virtual career fair best practices, and opportunities to scale your 1:1 connections. Check out some of the most common questions we’ve heard so far:
- Will students be able to leave or join a virtual career fair session once it has begun?
- How do you register, schedule, and prepare your teams to attend a virtual fair?
- Can employers ask custom questions during student the sign up process?
We hope to see you there!
