Spring 2021 CSE Virtual Career Fair 
Employer meeting sign up begins Monday, Feb. 1 at 8 a.m. Central Time

Download the Career Fair Plus app in the App Store for Apple devices or the Google Play Store for Android devices. Once downloaded, search for the University of Minnesota, then College of Science and Engineering Career Fair.

Next, follow the Career Fair Plus instructions to begin searching for employers and sign up for time slots to speak with employers one-on-one. Be sure to use the app filters and thoroughly read through schedule descriptions to find companies who are hiring your major and position type.

Sign-up will be open through the virtual Career Fair on Tuesday, Feb. 9, but we anticipate that some companies may reach capacity, so sign up early! Employers may add more meeting times up until the day of the Career Fair, so continue to check the app for additional time slots.

In addition to individual time slots, many employers will host group meeting rooms during the fair providing groups of students the opportunity to text chat with an employer in an informal setting. Students can pre-register for a group meeting or drop into the meeting on the day of the fair.

Attending group meetings is a great way to learn more about a company and their opportunities without signing up for a one-on-one meeting. We recommend signing up for the group meeting prior to the fair so you can better manage your schedule. Your Career Fair Plus dashboard gives you the option to view a list of meetings you’ve signed up for and filter them by one-on-one and group meetings.
