Career Fair Description

Engineering Career Fair

The Engineering Career Fair is for students and alumni who are seeking internship or full-time opportunities.

The Career Center has published and hosted a guide, What To Expect for the Career Fair. If you need assistance or have any questions during the fair, the UNT Career Center is hosting a Zoom room and we would love to see you there. This room is just for support; you actually access the career fair through Handshake.

Preparing for a virtual fair

Update your Handshake profile. The first step in preparing for virtual fairs is to make sure your Handshake profile is complete and up-to-date. Your Handshake profile helps you get personalized recommendations for upcoming virtual events. Plus, recruiters use profile fields to find students to invite to their sessions. Don’t let an incomplete or out-of-date profile keep you from getting discovered by recruiters.

  1. Check that the basics are accurate: graduation date, school year, major, GPA and work authorization.
  2. Select the job types, locations and roles that interest you, so recruiters know which jobs and internships are a good fit for you.
  3. Add your courses, skills, and any previous work experience.

Find out which employers are attending. View the virtual fair details page to see the full list of employers who are hosting sessions. From there, you can click through to each employer’s Handshake page to learn more about them and read reviews from other students. Be sure to sign up early for sessions with the employers you like so you’re guaranteed a spot.

Research the employers you’ll meet. When you sign up to attend an employer’s virtual fair session, research beyond their Handshake profile. Check out their company website and search online for recent news articles and other relevant information. This will help you think of questions to ask during sessions, and make conversation during one-on-one sessions you may have.

Prepare a few talking points. The employers that you meet with want to learn more about you! So think of an “elevator pitch” about yourself—a short overview about your background, studies, and career goals. Practice with a friend or family member so you’re ready when it’s time to introduce yourself to a recruiter.
