Career centers at Florida’s 12 public universities, including New College of Florida, will virtually host the 2021 Statewide Job Fair on June 10 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Current students and alumni from the participating institutions can register to attend at no cost. More than 200 employers from across a variety of industries, including Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Lutheran Services of Florida, and Sarasota County Government, have registered.
The fair will take place on Career Fair Plus, a free app designed for virtual career fairs. Employers are recruiting undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni for full-time, part-time and temporary positions. The app enables attendees to schedule one-on-one live chats or video calls with recruiters, as well as sort employers by the experience level they’re seeking and the open positions they offer. Representatives from the Florida Career Centers will also staff a virtual meeting room on the platform where students can drop in for tips on networking with employers, navigating Career Fair Plus and more.
Time slots with recruiters will continue to become available as they set their schedules leading up to June 10, so registrants should continue to check Career Fair Plus for appointments. Attendees should come prepared with their resumes and a summary of their background, relevant experience, and interests.
