  • CPD will host all virtual fairs and networking events using Handshake and Zoom Web Conferencing.


    Employers will register similarly to in-person fairs. Once the employer's registration is approved by CPD, employers are able to generate session schedules for representatives that will be present. 

    Employers are able to host two types of sessions to interact with students: 

    • Group Sessions:
      • 30 minutes each
      • Multiple students can attend
    • 1:1 Sessions:
      • 10 minutes each
      • One student and one employer representative can attend

    In these sessions, employers will be identified as the Host, and they will be able to share their screen with participants. 

    For additional information on how to register for the fair, sign up for sessions, and participate in the fair, visit the Handshake Help Center article "Handshake's Guide to Attending a Virtual Fair".

    Zoom Webinar
