WPI Plans for Fall Opening Latest Information

WPI Fall Virtual Career Fair Series - Session #1

Thursday, September 17, 2020
12:00 pm to 3:00 pm

EMPLOYERS

Overview

WPI will be holding a Virtual Career Fair series across six dates in September. Each fair will feature students from all degrees and disciplines and is ideal for employers looking to fill full-time, internship, and co-op positions. The goal of multiple sessions is to limit the number of organizations at one event and will allow for our employer partners to select the date(s) that works best for their recruiting calendars. We will be using the Brazen platform for our fall virtual career fair series, which will provide you with the ability to have 1:1 text chats with students, 1:1 video chats with students if you schedule them in advance or invite them to video during the text chat, provide live or pre-recorded presentations, on top of other helpful features you can customize for your organization's booth. All of these aspects of a virtual fair can help you find highly qualified talent in a remote environment. The ease of access using the Brazen platform and the data that you will receive on your candidates will be tremendously useful!

STUDENTS

The CDC will be hosting a Fall Virtual Career Fair series across six dates in September utilizing the Brazen platform. All dates are for students and alumni from all degrees and disciplines seeking a full-time job, internship, co-op or part-time experience. Companies will be signing up for the date that works best for their schedule, while other companies may attend multiple days. Therefore, each fair will consist of a mix of different companies and we recommend checking out each date in advance to see who is attending.  

The career fair is an opportunity to present yourself virtually through chat and video dialogue with potential employers, as well as take part in viewing their live and/or pre-recorded presentations.
