Career Fair Prep

Twice a year, Fall and Spring, the University of Arizona facilitates multi-day career fairs that bring together employers who are actively recruiting our talented graduate students during Career Days. This free and fully online, self-paced program for graduate students launches one month before each of the career fairs and provides information, guidance, and resources on:

  • Using Handshake to research employers and their job opportunities
  • How to research potential employers
  • Preparing a tailored resume
  • Crafting a self-introduction that highlights your skills and experiences
  • Developing a conversation plan to engage employers, to help them learn more about you, and to ask them about their company
  • Creating a plan to continue to build employer relationships after the event

Programming begins one month before each Career Fair.
