Virtual Career Fair Resources

NC State is using Career Fair Plus as our technology partner for our virtual career fairs. Career Fair Plus will help us to create an intuitive, user-friendly experience for students and employers.

Student Resources

Create an Account

  • You can start looking through the employers that will be attending your virtual fair without needing to create an account.
  • When you’re ready to start scheduling appointments, you will need to create an account and build your profile.
  • Make sure you build a complete profile that includes your resume as well as other relevant information. This is the profile employers will see when you make appointments to meet them, so you want to make a good impression!

Scheduling Meetings

As you browse the employers who will be at the virtual fair, you can schedule meetings to meet with them virtually.

  1. Tap on the employer you are would like to meet with and then tap ‘Meetings’ to see the schedules they have available
  2. Select the schedule that you’re interested in; employers may have multiple schedules
  3. Select a time that works for you, and hit ‘YES’ to book the meeting time

If you are not signed in, you will be prompted to sign in. If you have not yet created an account, you must do so at this stage in order to biik appointments.

The system will not allow you to double-book yourself, nor to book back-to-back meetings. This is so that you have a buffer window in case one of your meetings overruns.

Don’t forget, meetings are first-come, first-serve, so if there is an employer you want to meet with, don’t wait to schedule an meeting with them!
