2021 Design Virtual Career Fair
Wednesday, February 24
10:00am – 5:00pm CST
The career fairs will be held using a convenient virtual platform within CyHire, Iowa State’s online career management system. When a representative is ready to speak with a student, they will activate a video chat using their preferred video platform then have a short conversation with candidates. Additional information and training materials will be provided to registrants.
The platform enables employers to:
- Schedule available timeframe
- Set preferred meeting length (e.g. 5 min per student)
- Include as many representatives as desired
- Use your preferred video platform (Zoom, WebEx, etc.)
- Take notes to revisit later
- Email interested students prior to the fair
- Receive meeting information and resumes after the event
- Brief video overview
Registration is managed using CyHire. Create or access your account, then select the Design Career Fair from the list of events on the right side of your home screen. Please ensure information is complete for each participating representative and be sure to confirm your registration after completing the form. The standard registration fee is $100. A reduced rate is available for government and non-profit employers.
Employers wanting to hold interviews the day after the fair will be responsible for scheduling their own interviews and communicating with their candidates. Please send your interview schedule(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help us support students and track interviews for our data and reporting purposes.
Students use CyHire to search for professional opportunities and to learn more about employers prior to the career fair. We suggest posting any available jobs and/or internships via CyHire.
