Krannert Fall Virtual Career Fair

Wednesday, September 22, 2021
10:00 am

For years, Krannert students have been landing their dream jobs with the help of career fairs hosted by SMEF. During your time at Krannert, you’ve put an extraordinary amount of effort into preparing for case competitions, group projects, and exams. Your job search should be just as important. But you don’t have to do it alone — we’re here to help you every step of the way.

Creating An Account
The fall career fair will be held virtually on the Career Fair Plus platform. All student participants should create a Career Fair Plus account prior to the fair on September 22 & 23.

It will be critical for students to create an account and sign into Career Fair Plus in advance to schedule times to meet with employers. Everything candidates need to know for a smooth virtual fair experience can be found on the Career Fair Plus website.

Preparing for the Virtual Career Fair
The time you spend talking to recruiters during the fair is important, but the best candidates know the hard work happens in the weeks leading up to it. You know what job you want, and we can help you get it.

Krannert Professional Development Center is hosting a series of events (in person and virtual) designed to help you through all of the important preparation steps in advance of the career fair.
