PLEASE NOTE: Student Registration will open September 2 at 12PM ET! Both large-group information sessions (30 minutes each) and 1-to-1 meetings between students and representatives from each organization (10 minutes each) will be available to attendees, but you MUST register in advance of the event (beginning at the above date/time), and select each group session and/or 1-to-1 session you’d like to attend. Space is limited based on how many individual representatives are offered and is available on a first, come, first served basis by the organization so act fast!

When you register for the event, update your Handshake profile completely as employers will be able to see it.
· Be sure to complete all fields in your Handshake profile including job and industry interests.
· To sign up for Group or 1:1 sessions, your profile privacy setting will need to be set to “Community” or “Employers”.
· Because employers can set requirements on the following fields for eligibility to sign up for 1:1 meetings in the virtual career fairs, make sure that the basics are accurate: graduation date, school year, major, GPA and work authorization. Click on the pencil icon in your Handshake profile to make any necessary changes. Students who have not yet declared a major or concentration should feel free to add their intended choice. Since only one school automatically transfers into Handshake, dual degree students should add their second school. Note to transfer students, first-year graduate students, certain PhD students, and post-docs: If you don’t have a Penn GPA, put in the GPA from your previous institution or previous degree for the career fairs so that you are not screened out based on not having a GPA in the system.
CareerLink is open to all Penn students and alumni served by the Career Services office. Please see the “eligibility for services” section here.
