How to Access Your Scheduled Sessions:

  • Once you are in your Rutgers Handshake account, click on the "events" menu option at the top of the page, then click on the "Career Fairs" filter at the top.
  • Click on the fair of interest, and you will have the option of viewing your scheduled sessions. Once you click on a scheduled session, you will see a "Join Session" button in the top-right corner, which will launch the video platform. Note that this button only appears blue a few minutes before starting your scheduled session, so refresh your browser often.
  • The session will no longer be available if you are running late. If you scheduled a session with an employer and miss that time, the system would mark you as a no-show for that employer, and you will be unable to reserve another time slot today with that same employer.

We went Virtual!

The Rutgers-New Brunswick Virtual Fair Series is organized around our career communities. The fair labels represent the types of positions employers offer, NOT the industry with which they align. Employers from a variety of industries or sectors may need candidates for these types of roles. We encourage all candidates to research organizations and the positions they are recruiting before the event. Attend as many fairs within the series as appropriate. This fair is open to all Rutgers students and alumni.











While in-person offerings are currently limited, we strive to offer a tremendous virtual experience! Find the information and resources you need for success.
