  3. Find out which employers are attending so you can spend your time wisely and speak with everyone you need to during the job fair. Research the company's websites and learn about the positions available.
  4. Prepare some talking points in advance. Virtual meetings usually last less than 10 minutes.
  5. Test out the platform, as well as your audio, visual and internet connection prior to the day of, to ensure everything is working well.
