Virtual Event

Career Fair Description

The Professional Networking Series is designed to provide an intentional learning environment for students to develop their professional conversation skills with potential future employers specific to their degree and career pathway.

Registration is required for this event. If you are not registered, you will not be sent the list of employer Zoom links.

  • Employers will have individual Zoom meeting links. These will be sent to you after you pre-register.
  • All you need is a computer or cell phone, internet access, and a working microphone (video optional) for Zoom. Click on the Zoom links during the time indicated to join.
  • Act professional and polite at all times. Represent yourself and UNT well!
  • If you need assistance with Zoom, please see Zoom's great training articles.

 

Zoom Tips Before the Fair

  • Dress to impress. Make sure you have on a business casual or business professional outfit from head to toe.
  • Test video and audio quality on Zoom before the career fair starts. Feel free to pull in an extra lamp for good lighting, and shut any pets or children out of the room.
  • Adjust your lighting. Move a lamp around to ensure your face is well lit.
  • Think about your background. Make sure it’s clean and professional. Zoom does offer virtual backgrounds, so feel free to use them!
  • Practice speaking into the camera and not the screen. This will ensure you’re making “eye contact” with the recruiter.

 

Zoom Tips During the Fair

  • Mute your microphone when necessary.
  • You will be muted automatically when you join the meeting.
  • Feel free to use Zoom’s chat function as well.
  • Be mindful of yourself on camera.
  • Bring your notes and refer to them at any time. Set them to the side of the screen so you can easily glance at them and don’t have to shuffle your papers.

 

After the Fair

  • Follow up with the employers you spoke with! Connect with them on LinkedIn and/or send them a thank you email.
  • Schedule an appointment with your career coach to discuss next steps.

Call the Career Center at 940-565-2105 or email Career.Center@unt.edu if you have any additional questions.
