The virtual career fairs platform on Handshake is FREE for all Handshake partner institutions! Virtual Fairs is not a module and will be part of every institution contract in the future.
Refer to our blog post for more information on Hosting a Virtual Industry Focused Event on Handshake.
We have a few simple guidelines for usage, as the primary cost of virtual engagement is video. While Handshake absorbs the cost for our partners, we defined a few sensible parameters for engagement to prevent “always on” use.
We simply ask that our partners make sure events are career-outcome related and under six hours. If your event falls outside of these parameters, that’s OK! Just contact your Relationship Manager and let them know what your plans are and we’ll be happy to work with you.
Can I run my office’s appointments through virtual fairs?
No. We ask that you restrict the use of our virtual fair features to just career services-hosted career fair-type events.
Other vendors cap the number of employers who can sign up for a career fair, will Handshake have a cap or a recommended cap that you can support?
We know some vendors will have a cap on the number of employers that can be at an event at once. There will not be a cap like this in our tool; however, Handshake will be paying for video engagement, so we need to monitor video usage in some capacity so that it doesn't become extremely high. If you follow the guidelines provided above, your usage will remain free.
