The March 2022 virtual Career Day event featured opportunities both for career conversations in group settings and more personal one-on-one overviews, in addition to a limited number of programming sessions around career development. All opportunity-seekers were welcomed to join this event at no cost.

  • Exclusive access to the Career Day resume database to reach out to eligible candidates in advance and set up interviews and conversations
  • A digital “home” for attendees to learn more about each group’s opportunities, featuring options for sharing pre-recorded video, as well as synchronous and asynchronous messaging
  • Easy access to schedule and host meetings and interviews within the platform
  • The option to host live drop-in office hours
  • Access to interactive, personalized networking
