Are you ready for the Virtual Career Fair?

Denison students, are you ready to suit up (at least on your top half!) and meet with recruiters at the upcoming Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) Career Fair? This fair, hosted through Handshake on September 28th is an opportunity for you to connect with recruiters from over 50 organizations for 1:1 chats or joining a 30 minute group session.

 If a virtual fair sounds strange to you, think of it as an advantage to the internship/job search process! You can join from a comfy place of your choosing and have time to plan and prepare for each conversation you want to have! Still not convinced? Check out some of these resources below or attend David Snider’s (Denison Career Coach) Prepare for the Fair workshop.
