Life Science Facility
No Pre-Registration Needed

  • Research the companies attending the fair
  • Print multiple copies of your resume and have it ready to digitally share as well if needed (pdf is preferred)
  • Bring a “nice” folder or padfolio to carry around with your resume copies and also to keep any handouts or business cards you receive
  • Dress for success during the Career Fair. Business casual is acceptable, especially for freshman and sophomores.  Juniors and Seniors, you may choose to dress to impress and wear your professional suit. First impressions do make a difference. You will want to have professional dress ready also for any after fair interviews.  Clemson has a Career Closet to help with these outfits if you are not able to obtain professional clothing!

Virtual Career Fair

October 7th
11AM-2PM
Pre-Registration Required

Be sure to log into Clemson Job Link, to pre-register AND browse through companies that are attending to learn more. Remember, you can “star” up to 10 companies you want to visit with and those companies will be alerted that you are interested.  Below are a few things to remember as you prepare.  Please let me know if I can answer any questions or provide any assistance!

  1. Pre-Register and do your homework on companies!
  2. Upload your resume (see the tips below if you don’t have one ready yet!)
  3. Make sure you are “zoom ready”, dressed for success and have your talking points ready!
  4. Many employers will be offering group “information sessions” throughout the day.  Log in early and click on the company name to see more information from them on those activities.
  5. Nervous? Don’t know what to expect? Watch this Video Tour of the Virtual Fair
  6. Have ready the various virtual platforms that employers will be using to chat.  Zoom, WebEx, Microsoft Teams.
