Steps to a Successful Virtual Career Café Experience

  1. Sign in to Handshake, and register for one or more job fair events. Click the Virtual Career Café of your choice above, and you will be directed to log in to Handshake using your Titan Single Sign-On credentials. To complete your event registration, click the register button. You will receive an email confirmation of your registration.

  2. Complete your profile following this guide from Handshake. If you've used Handshake before but haven't logged in for a while, the system may simply prompt you to update your information, whereas new users must start from scratch. Be sure to select "community" instead of "private" when you set the visibility of your profile. To maximize your chances of getting hired, it's important to fill out all of the sections — and don't forget to upload your resume! If you don't have one, you can book a Career Center appointment for help getting started.

  3. Sign up for group and individual sessions. You'll have the opportunity to browse and follow employers' profiles in advance, as well as to arrange times to meet with them. Simply click the available sessions tab to see a list of available sessions, select the sessions you want, and click confirm. You can sign up for sessions up to one minute before their scheduled start times. You should sign up for the introductory group session that allows up to 50 students to simultaneously meet with an employer to learn more about open positions, company culture, and ask questions. Also sign up for a one-on-one session which allows you to chat privately with a potential employer. These individual sessions may be scheduled in advance (recommended if you know you're interested and because space is limited) or as a follow-up to a group session (pending employer availability).

  4. Connect! On the day of the career café, log in to Handshake to attend your sessions at their scheduled times. You can also review these day-of tips from Handshake to make the most of your experience. All sessions can be conducted using Handshake video, audio, or text-based chat; employers and students can individually determine how they would like to connect.
