UMBC’s first virtual Fall Career & Internship Fair will be taking place on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020. The UMBC Career Center wants to make sure you are registered, prepared, and comfortable with this new format prior to the day of the fair so you can make the most of your time connecting with employers over live group chat and video.
WHY SHOULD YOU PRE-REGISTER?
The pre-registration process will give you the opportunity to complete your profile and upload your resume. Employers will be able to search candidates based on the information provided on this registration form prior to and during the fair.
Pre-registered students will have early access to view attending organizations and review their job opportunities starting TODAY!
WHAT WILL I NEED TO COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION PROFILE?
You will want to have a current resume to upload to your profile.
A virtual resume review appointment can be made with a Career Center staff member by clicking the “Schedule Appointment” button on your UMBCworks home page. Next, select a 30 or 60 minute full resume review, OR a 15-minute Express Appointment (available Monday-Friday, 2-4 p.m., and Tuesday, 5-7 p.m.). All appointments are held via Webex, either screen share/video or phone. You will then receive a calendar invitation to the Webex appointment with directions on how to connect prior to your appointment time.
You will also have the opportunity to upload a profile picture and provide the link for your LinkedIn Profile.
