You’re ready to attend a virtual career fair with Career Services, but where do you begin? Follow this guide to ensure you’re ready and set-up for success!

Before the Career Fair

Setting Up

Visit and select the OSU Virtual Career Fair.

  1. Browse the list of employers.

  2. Favorite those you want to speak with during a meeting.

  3. Take notes on their company profile about what interests you and reminders of why you want to meet with them.

Create an Account

You will need to create an account and build your candidate profile. Make sure you build a complete profile that includes your resume as well as other relevant information. This is the profile employers will see when you book meetings, so you want to make a good first impression!

Check out the following video on how to create a student profile:

Book Meetings with Employers

On February 24th at 8:00am, all of the employer meetings for the Virtual OSU Career Fair will open and become bookable so you can begin making your career fair schedule.

Find an employer you are interested in meeting with:

  1. Click on one of their schedules: Group or 1-on-1.

  2. If it's a 1-on-1 Meeting, select the time you'd like to book a meeting.
    If you haven’t already, log in or create an account to book the meeting

Note: Please only book one meeting per employer. Recruiters will share their notes on the candidates they meet with, so there is no need to book meetings with multiple recruiters from the same company.

Here's a quick video walk-through of the booking process:

Once you have created an account and booked your meetings, you can view your schedule and join your meetings on the web portal on the day of the fair!
