How does a virtual career fair work?
The Aerospace, Defense, and Intelligence Career Fair will be hosted on the virtual platform, Brazen, which allows students to interact with companies via either text chats or 1-1 video chats. Please prepare for both, as it is up to the employer which form of chat they utilize.
How do I access the fair?
Students will need to register for the career fair on Brazen. By creating an account, you will be able to build a profile and upload your resume prior to the event.
Do I still need to dress professionally?
Because companies find the 1-1 video chats more productive than text chat, it is important that you dress professionally and are fully engaged when participating in the career fair.
See you on September 28-29!
