Career and Graduate/Professional School Information Fairs

Upcoming Virtual Career and Information Fairs from Handshake

For job and internship seeking students, COVID-19 has jump-started the nascent virtual career fair industry! What this means for you is that there is still a lot of opportunity out there for you as companies are taking advantage of these virtual platforms to source talent. Some virtual career fairs are open to students from anywhere in the US, while others are closed for a host university’s students only.

Lead Your Way: Diversity Networking and Career Conference - February 17th at 3:00 P.M – 6:00 P.M

**This Fair will be Virtual and hosted on Handshake**

Join us for the inaugural Lead Your Way: Diversity Networking and Career Conference as we foster rich discussion on diversity equity and inclusion topics while promoting diverse talent for internships and full-time employment. This event is being offered as a collaboration between the Career Centers at Appalachian State University, NC Central University, UNC Chapel Hill, and UNC Greensboro. This fair is open to all undergraduate and graduate students (except MBA, Medical, Dental, and Law).

The event will feature break-out panels on topics related to diversity in the workplace featuring employers from organizations who have committed their resources to promoting diversity, and a networking after party for participants to interact with each other. Panel topics are listed below. Once we receive your registration, we will confirm the panel topic, time and send you the Zoom link.

Panel Session 1: Authenticity in the Workplace

  • Bring your whole self to work, can I be myself at work (ie. gender, sexual identify, religion), ways that students can show up to work without negotiating who they are, how do you as a student/candidate identify your core values to make sure you find an organization that shares those values

Panel Session 2: Managing Difference in the Workplace

  • Addressing micro-aggressions and toxic workplace, training initiatives on inclusivity/bias, creating supportive safe work space

Panel Session 3: Recruiting, Hiring & Retaining Diverse Talent

  • Ways that recruiters and hiring managers mitigate bias in recruiting and hiring of students from underrepresented groups; the resources companies make available to support the retention and advancement of those groups such as employee resource groups (ERG’s), mentoring programs, and leadership development programs; the management and leadership demographics disaggregated by race/gender and the goals to improve identified disproportionate representation

Please register and plan to participate in this event. You may participate in the whole or event, or in part, depending on your schedule and availability. We welcome you and look forward to having you contribute to the conversation.
