    The BDN Virtual Graduate School & Career Fair offers a two-in-one recruitment experience. It is a professional event for undergraduate students who are interested in attending graduate school programs. It is also a professional event for job-market ready graduate students and advanced degree holders to meet with employers from universities, non-profits and corporate organizations. Job-seekers will have an opportunity to interview with prospective employers or schedule interviews for a later date. 

    This online recruitment fair is an excellent venue for employers who are committed to diversity and inclusion at their institution. As a recruiter, you will be able to network with and interview highly qualified candidates from underrepresented groups with advanced degrees from across the disciplines for faculty or other professional positions. 

    Fair Information:

    The recruitment fair will take place October 15, 2020 from 10am - 3pm (ET). 

    Candidate Information:

    Recruiters are considered representatives from companies or organizations that are recruiting for graduate school admissions or career openings. Candidates will have the opportunity to share their resumes, virtual business cards and other documents with recruiters.  Candidates will also have the ability to engage in a chat or video call with recruiters.  Candidates will begin interacting with the recruiters when the event goes live. 

    Recruiter Information:

    Candidates are students and professionals who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees or advanced degree holders who are pursuing career opportunities.

    Recruiters will have the ability to review resumes, collect information from candidates, and engage with candidates in a chat or via Zoom video call. Recruiters will gain access to set up their virtual booths in September. The virtual platform allows you to create a profile for each recruiter at the booth, upload documents, post a video, schedule follow up calls and connect directly with candidates.
