Important advice on navigating the virtual career fair.

  1. Will there be a time limit per recruiter?
    • Yes. The limit is 10 minutes. Times may be extended at the recruiter’s discretion.
  2. Will we be able to see how long the wait time will be per company?
    • Yes.
  3. Will the "wait line" be based on a first come first serve basis?
    • Short answer: yes. Companies can elect to enable “SmartQueue” which will automatically sort their line based on the company’s desired credentials; however, SmartQueue will never turn down a student from talking to a recruiter.
  4. Is this 1:1 session by video chat or just through texting?
    • All chats begin as a 1:1 text chat. Companies who have elected to include video chat in their booth can then open a video chat at any point in the conversation.
  5. Will interviews still be the following days after expo?
    • Interviews will be held at the company’s discretion using a 3rd party application. Details on their interview schedule will be provided by the company during your chat. The SEC will not be responsible for any interviews.
  6. Will there be a demo video or tutorial on how to use Brazen?
    • Yes! We will provide you with as much information as possible leading up to the event. Look out for information on an Expo Prep event headed by the SEC, and stay in touch with our social media and email listserv for live updates.
  7. Will expo be a during a certain time from say 10 am-4 pm? Or will different companies be on during different parts of the day?
    • 10-4 PM, 9/15-9/17
  8. Will we know what employment type the companies will be hiring?
    • Yes. This information is available at expo.sec.vt.edu and will be available in each company booth.
  9. Are freshmen allowed at this event, and do we have to register in advance?
    • Yes & yes! Registration links will be sent out closer to the date of the event. We’ll send out a schedule in the coming weeks.
  10. When will the information of times and what companies are attending be published?
