On Friday, February 11, Firsthand held its first annual MBA Virtual Career Fair. The fair was geared toward first- and second-year MBA students looking to prepare for and find internships and full-time positions.
The fair allowed students to connect with top employers, and included a keynote speech by PrimeGenesis Chairman George Bradt; a career paths panel discussion, which featured prominent executives in the banking, tech, health care, and e-commerce sectors; a fireside chat about the all-important consulting case interview; and a panel discussion focused on sustainable careers in consulting.
The fair also included a fireside chat with Hon Lam, a Career Coach and Talent Consultant at University of Texas, about the international student job search. This special chat was geared towards international MBAs, and covered the H-1B lottery, the advantages that international students bring to employers, how to highlight those advantages, and inside tips on finding full-time employment in the U.S.

The fair will provide women studying science, technology, engineering, or math or already in STEM roles with the opportunity to meet with employers, find new and exciting jobs, learn career lessons, expand their professional networks, and engage with event sponsors.
