Registration Fees for Spring 2022 Virtual Career Fair:

  • For-profit companies: $400
  • Large Nonprofits (50+ employees) and Government Agencies: $300
  • Small Nonprofits (less than 50 employees) and Emerging Start Ups (less than 50 employees): $150

Virtual Career Fair Format

  • We will be hosting 100 employers maximum for each fair, so we encourage employers to register for the events as soon as possible to reserve your spot.
  • We also recommend that employers plan tohave at least 2-5 representatives attend the fair in order to be able to host 30-minute group sessions concurrent with 10-minute 1:1 individual chat sessions with students.
    • We encourage attending employers to host at least one group session as it is the most efficient way to reach several unique students. Each group session you can have a different descriptive title if you wanted to use this opportunity to engage in a variety of topics such as general info session, Ask Me Anything panels, a session around a particular role you are hiring for, etc.
  • Employers should make sure to update their Handshake profiles with new jobs and internships well in advance of the fair date. In addition, please highlight any Tufts alumni representatives that will be representing your organization by listing their name, Class Year, and Major in your fair employer description.
  • Employers need to build out their schedules in advance of student registration opening for students.    Students will be unable to sign-up for group sessions or one-on-one sessions until you have these finalized and visible in Handshake.
  • Employers – Top 10 Ways to Prepare for the Tufts Virtual Career Fair 
  • Students will need to attend a Tufts Virtual Career Fair preparation session that will be offered in order to learn more about how to navigate a virtual career fair. Students will be required to schedule all one-on-one chat sessions and group sessions in advance of the fair. We are not responsible for students that attend the virtual event and are unable to access sessions or chats on the day of the event.
