Important Information for Students

The Virtual Career Fairs will be hosted on the Handshake platform this fall. This new way to engage with employers means there won't be any lines and a little preparation will ensure you can maximize the experience. Watch this five minute video on Virtual Career Fairs at Handshake for an overview of how this will work within Handshake. Students will register through Handshake, build schedules for one-on-ones with companies of interest and be able to register for group sessions to learn more. 

Participating Organizations

A list of participating organizations is available in Handshake on your events page when you register for the virtual career fairs. Updated employer details will be available as employers register. Students are welcome to register for all virtual career fairs of interest as different employers may be attending on different days. Feel free to attend another day to connect with all employers of interest.

Prepare for the Career Fair (Workshops)

For more information on the Multi-Day Virtual Fall Career Fair, please contact your co-op advisor or the career counselor for graduating students and recent alumni, Helene Stockman-Baer at hms372@drexel.edu.

Important Information for Employers

Employers may register using Handshake and will receive a confirmation email when the career fair registration is approved with an invoice. Employers are welcome to register for more than one day. Daily registration fees will apply.

Employer Registration

Each representative registered will be able to create their own unique schedule and employers are encouraged to do so right away so students can schedule a time to connect at the career fair. This Handshake help article on How to Set a Schedule for a Virtual Fair is a guide for creating a schedule.

Employers will be able to engage with students and alumni during this virtual career fair hosted on Handshake through:

  • Video, audio, and chat communication with students
  • Group meetings with up to fifty students
  • One-on-one student meetings scheduled in advance or after a group session
  • Sharing company culture and messaging students ahead of time

Note: During registration, employers will be asked to share the number of representatives attending the fair — up to 15 representatives per employer are able to participate in the fair. Each representative registered will be able to create their own unique schedule to engage with students later this summer. To learn more about these features, check out this Handshake-hosted training webinar and review this help article on Virtual Fairs in Handshake for an overview of employer scheduling for the career fair.

Registration Fees

Corporate: $300 and Non-Profit: $150

  • October 5: STEM (Day 1) 10 a.m.–1 p.m.
  • October 6: STEM (Day 2) 10 a.m.–1 p.m.
  • October 7: Business, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.

Corporate: $200 and Non-Profit: $100

  • October 9: Health and Human Services, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.; Media Arts and Design, 2–4 p.m.

The STEM and Business Days have different registration fees to reflect the larger student and alumni populations that would be attending these days. For the Health and Human Services, Media Arts and Design and Liberal Arts and Education events we anticipate student attendance will be representative of the Drexel student populations within these areas and the employer participation is set to a smaller scale.
