Discover new career opportunities. Get personalized recommendations based on your Handshake profile for which employers to connect with.
Never wait in line, ever. Pre-schedule 1:1 or group sessions with employers ahead of the fair or on the day-of.
Make an impression. Bring your unique perspective to the table, ask great questions, and follow up with recruiters after the fair.
