SAN ANTONIO – The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is collaborating with institutions across the San Antonio area to bring students an opportunity for students and alumni to network from home. Students at partnering institutions will have the opportunity to virtually connect with employers from across the nation. Partnering institutions include: The University of Texas at San Antonio, Northeast Lakeview College, Northwest Vista College, Palo Alto College, Schreiner University, St. Mary’s University, Texas A&M University San Antonio, Trinity University, and the University of the Incarnate Word.
Students and alumni can prepare for the expo by reviewing the attending employers prior to the event and preparing to interact with employers through a chat rather than a face-to-face interaction like they would at a traditional career fair. Participants should review what time each employer will be online to ensure that they will be in the expo while a particular employer is online. Once a participant has connected with an employer in the general chat, employers can invite participants to a private chat where they can ask more specific questions about a participant’s experience and qualifications. Participants can also prepare for the expo by reviewing their resume and utilizing the University Career Center’s resume templates, uploading their resume to VMock for instantaneous feedback, or by checking in to the University Career Center’s virtual drop-in hours every Tuesday and Wednesday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. For more information on virtual drop-in hours visit Handshake.
