Virtual Career Fair Resources

Welcome to the Poole College of Management’s virtual career fair resources page. Given the current COVID-19 global pandemic, we have decided to host our college career fairs in a virtual format this fall. We have partnered with Career Fair Plus to offer students and employers a virtual networking experience that will be beneficial to both parties. We are here to assist you with this transition from an in-person career fair to a virtual fair and we offer a full list of resources below to help you get started and have a successful virtual career fair experience.
