Do I need to register? Advance registration is not required, but highly encouraged! Registering will help us keep you up to date on event logistics and share preparation resources.

Do I need to sign up for timeslots in advance? No, since this is an in-person career fair, you can show up on the day of the fair and walk around to connect with recruiters.

Tell me more about the free LinkedIn profile photos? Ventrait Pictures are now filled.

Why is it important to have a free LinkedIn profile? LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with more than 830 million members. You can use LinkedIn to find jobs or internships, connect and strengthen professional relationships, and learn skills to succeed in your career. Your unique profile can help demonstrate your experience, skills, and education.

Is there a cost to using LinkedIn? LinkedIn offers a free basic membership to anyone who wants to create a professional profile online.
