5. Big Ten Virtual Career Fair


Thursday and Friday, November 29 & 30

Times are specific for each attending employer


The Big Ten Virtual Career Fair is a great way to get in front of leading employers without ever having your leave campus! In fact you don't even have to leave your desk.


The Big Ten Virtual Career Fair is open exclusively to students and alumni of the 12 Big Ten universities. Whether you are looking for an internship, a job right out of college or are an experienced hire, you'll be able to find a job opportunity suited for your skills. On the days of the fair you'll be able to talk directly to corporate recruiters.


Some of the nation's top companies may be looking at your resume prior to the event, so don't be surprised if you hear from an HR representative requesting you interview with them during the job fair. By contacting these companies through chat rooms rather than standing in line, you are much more likely to have a meaningful exchange with the recruiter. And it's incredibly easy to sign up!


Return to the site often as new companies are added every day. Many of the companies will have links to their websites with job postings as well as the hours during the virtual fair that they will be online to chat with you about jobs.


Log on during the virtual career fair hours on Thursday, November 29, and Friday, November 30. The companies will have "office hours" listed online so you'll be able to hook up directly with the companies you are interested in working with.


One week before the event, registered attendees will be given a unique username and password that will give them unlimited access to the two-day Virtual Career Fair.


That's all you have to do and you'll be on your way.
