·  Laptop/computer (PC/Mac) -- recommended

How it Works:

Employers will host a Zoom breakout room for 1 hour and 30 minutes. During this time students can log into an employer's Zoom breakout room and network in-real time with employers like at a face-to-face Career Fair. Each employer will have a specific date and time during which they will host their virtual 'booth' and a unique Zoom link associated with that session.


 How to Participate:

  1. All you need is a computer, tablet or cell phone, internet access, and a working audio for Zoom. Click the unique Zoom links for the employers you are interested in connecting with during the time indicated to join. Please note you will need to download the Zoom desktop app if you haven't already to connect with employers one-on-one in the breakout rooms.
  2. View a list of participating employers and the positions for which they are recruiting by exploring employer booths on the event page on MustangJOBS, powered by Handshake starting April 15, 2020.
  3. Make a list of organizations that you are interested in and research them. Visit their websites, learn their latest news, and prepare questions. Your preparation will become evident in your interaction with organization representatives, helping you to stand out. Be patient and anticipate crowds and lines; if an organization of interest has a long line, come back later.
  4. Registration is required and opens on April 15 and will end on April 27.
