Virtual Platform

We will be using Handshake’s virtual career fair platform. We will be continually sharing resources with registered attendees to help you and your team adapt successfully to this continually evolving platform. We highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the fair platform well in advance of the fair to make the most of the fair experience and avoid technical challenges.

Interviews

While the virtual fair sessions facilitates informal 1:1 meeting times with students, JMU does offer virtual interviewing options if you would like to schedule more formal follow up interviews with candidates you met during the fair. Feel free to reach out to handshake@jmu.edu for more information on scheduling formal interviews following your fair participation.
