Fall 2021 Resume Review Day

Tuesday, September 21, 2021 - 12:00pm to 3:00pm


What is Resume Review Day?
This event brings employers, hiring managers, and alumni together virtually to offer 1-on-1 resume review to students from all majors and with all career interests. This is not an interview or formal application for a specific job/internship within one of the companies, but an incredible opportunity for students to get tips and feedback on their resume from industry experts that look at thousands each year.

How do I share my resume with Employers?

This semester, you will have two options for sharing your resume for feedback:
  1. Share your screen. Have a copy of your resume open on your computer during the event and share your screen with the employer.
  2. Create a shareable link. Share the link with the employer in the chat of your 1:1 meeting.
Whichever method you choose for getting your resume in front of the eyes of the experts, be sure to take detailed notes on the feedback you receive!

How do I prepare for Resume Review Day?

Pro-Tips for During the Event:

  • To Cancel a Session
    • If you can’t make a session that you've registered for, we highly suggest you cancel the session instead of just skipping it
  • Virtual Backgrounds
    • Handshake Fairs do NOT have virtual backgrounds, so if using video to chat, ensure your dorm/room background is appropriate for speaking with a potential employer
  • Text Chats 
    • Text written in the chat during a session is NOT saved
    • Copy any contact information or details the recruiter has shared with you before leaving the session!
  • Technology Troubleshooting
