It’s easy to make assumptions as you walk around a career fair, limiting the types of employers you interact with to a particular industry or well-known brand with fancy giveaways. Can you ever really have too many free pens? However, you never know what opportunities are out there until you take a chance and chat with a recruiter. You might find out that there is a great internship that fits your skills and passions that you never would have considered if you didn't stop and introduce yourself.

This past fall, we learned that employers can’t rely on their in-person recruiting plans and expect to be successful in the virtual space. At an in-person fair in the “before times,” you could set up your booth and expect hundreds of students to stream by in just a few hours. Students didn’t need to know anything about you in advance to stop and chat (or grab some free swag!).

It’s no secret that the global pandemic has upended our economy, and some of the industries that traditionally hire lots of graduating college seniors—travel, hospitality, entertainment—have had to temporarily institute hiring freezes or delay start dates.
