Virtual Fair Series: Candidate Information

The Rutgers Virtual Tri-State Career & Internship Fair Series is open to all Rutgers University candidates including current students, graduate students, and alumni. Registration for employers is an on-going process. Please check back often on the Handshake page to see which new employers have registered. The three events in the Rutgers Virtual Career & Internship Fair Series will be segmented as follows.

Complete your registration by selecting:

  • one-on-one virtual sessions to connect directly with recruiters seeking undergraduate, graduate, and alumni candidates.
  • 30-minute group sessions hosted by employer representatives to provide greater insight into their organization and hiring needs.

Spots are limited—register today by selecting one of the fair events listed below and sign up for sessions.

APRIL 30, 2021 | 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM ET 

How to access your scheduled sessions

Once you are in Handshake, click on the "events" menu option at the top of the page, then click on the "Career Fairs" filter at the top. Click on the fair of interest, and you will have the option of viewing your scheduled sessions. Once you click on a scheduled session, you will see a "Join Session" button in the top-right corner, which will launch the video platform. Note that this button only appears blue a few minutes before starting your scheduled session, so refresh your browser often. The session will no longer be available if you are running late. If you scheduled a session with an employer and miss that time, the system would mark you as a no show for that employer, and you will be unable to reserve another time slot today with that same employer.

Fair Preparation

Properly prepare for this virtual fair and put your best foot forward! Career Exploration and Success (formerly University Career Services) at New Brunswick provides preparation resources for Rutgers University–New Brunswick current students and alumni. If you are not affiliated with RU-NB (either a current or former student of the campus) you will need to seek preparation resources through your own campus.

Preparation is paramount! A variety of options are available to you to prep for the fair!
