  1. Create a strong virtual profile. Ensure your resume is up to date.
  2. List the type of positions you’re looking for on your profile so it is easy for employers to find you as a candidate.
  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. 
  6. Plan where you will be sitting in advance. Find a quiet spot with a neutral background and good lighting.

  8. Arrive on time for all scheduled meetings or interviews.
  9. Maintain eye contact and practice active listening. Try to smile and nod naturally as you would during an in-person conversation.
