Information for Students and Alumni

Registering and signing up for sessions 

  • In order to sign up for sessions with employers, you must be registered for the expo. 
  • To sign up for Group or 1:1 sessions, you may be prompted to update your profile privacy setting. We recommend using Community to make the most of your Handshake experience, as this will allow you to participate in all fair sessions and engage with other students/alumni!
  • Review which employers are attending the expo (follow employers you want to check back in with)!
  • You'll be able to sign up for sessions up to one(1) minute before the start time; once the session has started, you'll be unable to sign up for the session.

Preparing for the expo

Here are some best practices to help you prepare for a successful expo: 

Participating in the expo

All sessions will have the option for Handshake video, audio and text based chat. There is no customization for types of interaction; it is up to the employer and student joining the session to determine how they would like to connect.
