Although the actual Spring Semester Career Fair is different from the traditional format due to the coronavirus pandemic, the virtual event is still a great opportunity for students to explore several industries, learn about potential job and internship opportunities, and network with employers and Notre Dame alumni recruiting for their companies.
The Spring Semester Career Fair will be conducted on Notre Dame’s online career platform, Handshake. Since the virtual Fall Career Fair, the platform has made several notable updates to enhance the Career Fair experience for students, including: ability to follow employers and receive alerts when interview schedules are ready, capability for screen sharing in 1:1 sessions with recruiters, session availability filters, and more.
To help students test out and get comfortable with the interface of the Handshake Career Fair platform, CCD staff will be hosting a virtual mock fair on Friday, Feb. 12, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Preparation workshops and resume reviews will also be offered prior to the fair - more information to come.
