What Not to Do at Virtual Events

Keep these career fair "don't"s in mind before logging on to meet employers.

So, you’ve registered for a virtual recruiting event! You’ve got your talking points all planned out, done your research on the employers you’ll meet, and given your roommates the “I need you to be quiet for a few hours” talk. But are there any day-of dealbreakers? Here are a few “don’t”s for any virtual recruiting event.

Just follow these simple rules:

  1. Don’t wait to sign up for sessions. Learn how to sign up here! Try to snag some great spots in advance to get face time with your favorite employers.
  2. Don’t bail on employers. Try to avoid missing your sessions or canceling at the last minute. If an emergency comes up, contact your school’s career center to see if they can help relay the last minute scheduling change to any employers you’ll miss!
  3. Don’t forget to follow up. Shoot a thoughtful thank-you note to any employers you meet after the career fair!
