To ensure the safety of the UW-Madison community and visitors, all students and employees must share proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or be required to test weekly on campus (effective August 30).
This requirement does not apply to employer visitors. However, all students, employees and visitors to campus are required to wear masks when inside campus buildings. This rule applies to the in-person Career & Internship Fair dates.
Some schools and colleges at UW-Madison will offer on-campus interviewing opportunities; check this space for updates or contact us for more information.
Additional Hiring Opportunities
Career Fairs are built to connect employers with students looking for internships and full-time degree-seeking job opportunities. Those wishing to promote part-time positions or on-campus student employment are encouraged to post to the Student Job Center.
Only recruiting Engineering students? You may consider attending the College of Engineering Career Fairs.
Virtual Fair FAQs
This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.
Has Handshake thought of how the virtual fair features will accommodate needs of small local employers as well as larger employers?
Scheduling will honor employer preferences. For smaller and local employers we will recommend group sessions to reach as many students as possible. A large employer may have the resources to send multiple representatives that can create 1:1 availability throughout the day.
Do all employers need to set up the time slots for 1:1 appointments with students?
Handshake will provide templates for employer schedules, but each employer will have the opportunity to adjust this based on their preferences.
Can employers customize the way their booth looks with logos, etc.?
Employers will be able to customize their registrations (booths) similarly to how they customize their Handshake profiles today. We are considering pre-recorded videos as another branding mechanism for employers registrations.
Will there be an opportunity for a company to host something on the departmental level? For example, a company that may hire engineers primarily, but also might have a marketing department booth, and an HR booth, and a business analyst booth, etc.
Yes, employers will be able to set schedules per representative and connect those schedules to relevant positions and preferences.
Other companies who provide this platform limit the number of fairs they will hold per day, so the platform isn’t overloaded. Will you be doing this, and if so, do I need to make a reservation with you?
There will be no limit on the number of concurrent fairs that can be run based on platform capacity.
Will interview days be integrated into the virtual career fair experience?
Scheduling will be a part of virtual fairs! These schedules will support 1:1 and group interactions.
Will your virtual fair have the option to do an interview day with pre-selects?
Pre-select interviews on the day after the fair will not be built into the virtual fair feature. However, you will be able to create a pre-select interview separate from the virtual fair, just like you can do with in-person fairs today.
