Prepare for Virtual Industry Fairs

  • Get your resume ready. Check out our resume basics and sample resumes for AS&E and SMFA undergraduates and graduate students.
  • Get a resume review. Get your resume critiqued prior to uploading it to Handshake as a public document for employers to view! Stop by the Career Center's virtual resume critique day on Monday, September 14 from 7 am - 7 pm ET (first come, first served, no appointment necessary). You can also make a Quick Question appointment for a resume review on a day of your choosing. In both cases, have your resume ready to share on screen via Zoom meeting.
  • Attend a Prepare for the Fair workshop. These events will be hosted on Tuesday, September 15 at 12 pm ET and Wednesday, September 16 at 1 pm ET (choose one session to attend). They also will be recorded, and you can access them on our YouTube playlist if you cannot make the event day of. In addition, we will have virtual/chat Office Hours leading up to the fair on 9/21 (9 am - 12 pm), 9/23 (12 - 3 pm), and 9/25 (3 - 6 pm). 
  • Plan to dress professionally for the Virtual Industry Fairs. Review proper attire for MenWomen, and those beyond the binary. Business casual attire is appropriate for the Virtual Industry Fairs, unless you’ve been instructed differently. You may note some career fair or interview attire guidelines portray traditional gender roles: Remember, you are the final judge of what will work for you. Job seekers should dress professionally for the gender they would choose to present at work or in gender-neutral attire. The most important consideration for appropriateness of attire is that clothes be professional, fit well, and be consistent with organizational culture.

[NO-SHOW POLICY] As a policy, we ask that students who no longer wish to meet with an employer they have a scheduled 1-on-1 with give notice and cancel prior to the start of the Virtual Industry Fair. This is as a courtesy to the employer and to other students who would be interested in filling the slot. If the Fair has started, we kindly ask that you keep your commitment as a representation of not only yourself, but the Tufts community. *No-shows may result in a loss of access to all Handshake functionality*
