You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions of your own at the end of the discussion.

You'll learn why the case interview is important, how to prepare for it, and best practices for succeeding.
Join a Social Impact Careers Panel Discussion
All attendees will have the opportunity to listen in on a panel discussion with representatives from top employers about how to find companies that are making a real impact when it comes to ESG (environmental, social, corporate governance), how to prepare for roles that focus on ESG, and where to find these roles. There will be time at the end of the panel for a Q&A.
Join a Career Search for International Students Panel Discussion
This special panel geared toward international MBAs will focus on the H-1B Lottery, the advantage that international students bring to employers, how to highlight that advantage, and inside tips to finding full-time employment in the U.S.
Connect with Top Employers Through Virtual Booths
In addition to benefiting from talks and panel discussions, you'll gain insights and expertise from representatives from many top employers who actively recruit, interview, and make hiring decisions. Several employers will host virtual booths, and each booth will include a list of representatives that can be booked for 20-minute one-on-one conversations that will take place on the day of the fair.
Also, upon registering for the fair, you'll be prompted to submit your resume for the chance to be pre-selected by employers for one-on-one conversations on the fair date. If pre-selected, you'll be notified via email prior to the fair. If not selected, you can still drop your resume at any employer booth that you choose, and be able to explore employer booths once they go live.
