Upcoming Fairs

Employers are available for 1-on-1 and group sessions, however, you MUST schedule these within Handshake before the fair session begins. We encourage you to schedule sessions in all areas of interest. Review the full details of various employers  to ensure you're not missing out on great opportunities to connect.

You can only attend the sessions you signed up for in advance. Registration closes when a session begins or reaches capacity. NEW employers are added each day—so be sure to check back!

How to Schedule a Session:

  • Visit the fair within your Rutgers Handshake account.
  • When you locate an organization that you'd like to meet with virtually, look for the session information to appear below the organization's name and description. Note: Group sessions will have a custom title and indicate a length of 30 minutes, while 1:1 sessions will have "One on One with ORGANIZATION NAME" as the title.
  • Click on the name of the session(s) you'd like to sign up for and follow the instructions provided. For more information, check out this article OR watch the video here. Don't forget, each fair has different employers available for 1-on-1 and group sessions! We encourage you to schedule sessions in any fair of interest. Review the full details for each to be sure you're not missing out on great opportunities to connect with employers

How to Access Your Scheduled Sessions:

  • Once you are in your Rutgers Handshake account, 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.
