College of Business and Economics Career Fair on Friday, October 9th from 11am to 3pm
Date: Friday, October 9, 2020
Time: 11am to 3pm
Location: Virtually through Handshake
Fees: $150 (Since this is our first time hosting a virtual career fair, we are discounting the fees! Please remember that all fees go to cover any costs with the event, with the remaining proceeds going toward student scholarships within the College of Business and Economics). If you are a non-profit organization, please inquire with me about additional payment rates.
In order to register for the event, you must be a Handshake user. If your organization does not currently have a Handshake account, here is information on how to set one up: Handshake Employer Accounts. Once you set up an account, please allow a few days for your account to be approved by the University Career Center. Once it is, you will be able to register for the event, post positions, etc.
If you already have a Handshake account, please visit this link for registration: CBE Fall Career Fair. Please note, when registering, the “REGISTER” button is on the top right-hand portion of the screen.
Once registered, a staff member of the Student Academic and Career Services (SACS) team will review and approve your registration. Once approved, you will receive information on next steps for preparing for the virtual career fair through Handshake. Additionally, an invoice will be emailed to you with payment instructions. A few important notes about the CBE virtual fairs through Handshake:
The virtual fair will take place IN the Handshake platform.
Employers will be able to schedule group sessions AND 1:1 sessions with students. Everything is scheduled! There are NO “waiting rooms!”
Group sessions are a great opportunity to speak to a larger group of students about your organization and the opportunities available. You will be able to schedule 3 currently (come September, you will be able to schedule 5 total) and are typically 30 minutes in length.
1:1 sessions are an opportunity for you to speak directly with individual students. You may request a student signs up for a 1:1 session OR students can schedule one with you.
We strongly recommend that you also post any positions your hiring for IN Handshake. After meeting with students, you have the option to follow up with them by providing a link to your job posting.
Having an account in Handshake also allows you to seek student profiles that are “public.”
We are excited to see the opportunities our virtual fair will bring. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at CBECareerServices@towson.edu.
