Standard

Coming up on March 29, 2012 is the SoACE Virtual Career Fair. If you are a little confused as to what a virtual career fair entails, simply read below for information specific to this event.

What is a Virtual Career Fair?

TCU Career Services, a member of SoACE has teamed with Unicruit to provide you with an opportunity to learn about career opportunities with many companies in an on-line, virtual environment.

By participating in the Virtual Career Fair you will have the opportunity to interact with representatives from recruiting organizations and ask questions about these organizations just as they would face-to-face. In this case, many of the recruiters may not come to your campus, but are still interested in recruiting.

When you register to participate, you will have the opportunity to upload your resume and occupational goals.  On February 1st you will be able to enter the Career Fair and “meet” representatives.  You will have the opportunity to participate in the Student Lounge where you can ask more informal, but career-related questions.

For more information contact Career Services at 817-257-2222.
