Career Resources

Get the most from your MSEN Virtual Career Fair

Dust off your resume

Update your resume, tailor it to the employers you like, and upload it to your MSEN profile in the weeks prior to the event.

Prepare a short pitch

Write a 30-second pitch that highlights your top skills or positions you for a specific role. This helps you stand out with recruiters, who are meeting many potential candidates in a short time.

Dress for success

Even for virtual events, dress as you would for an in-person interview. The virtual career fair is a chance to make a great first impression and show employers you’re serious about joining their team.

Consider questions to ask employers

Career fairs give recruiters a chance to find great candidates, but this is also an opportunity for you to find a company that’s a good fit for you.

Be proactive – Don’t wait for employer to engage with you

Many employers are new to virtual career fairs as a tool to identify candidates. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get an invitation for a virtual interview in advance of the live event, even if you’ve applied for jobs. On the day, start the conversation. Reach out and engage with employers using text chat to get the ball rolling.

Relax and be confident!

Dress for success, have some water ready beside you and feel good about showcasing your top skills in a calm and confident way, from the comfort of your own home.
