What's in my profile?

  • My Resume

    Uploading your resume takes seconds to do. Click and select the file on your computer. Before you upload your resume, be sure to update it and proofreda...oops. That's what we mean. Proofread. Have a friend or colleague take a look.

  • Headline

    If you were a book, this would be your title. Capitalize the main words. Use action, experience and qualities that describe you. Avoid clichés like the plague. Punctuation is not necessary!!!!

  • Key Words

    Too often, job seekers leave this area blank because they think the resume has it covered. Don't. This is how employers will search through hundreds of job seekers to get to YOUR resume. 

  • My Picture

    Uploading a photo of you is completely optional. If you choose to do so, please keep it professional. More like LinkedIn and less like Facebook.

Try the Demo!

A great way to get ready for the Live Career Fair is to a dry run. The demonstration below will take you through the full process of the career fair up to the point where you talk to a recruiter or leave a message. The demo will end at that time.

Please read through all the tips below before starting. You must be logged in to your Job Seeker Account to enter the Live Career Fair Demonstration.

Use Chrome Browser

If the Live Career Fair link opens in a non-supported browser like Safari or Internet Explorer, copy and paste the link in a Chrome browser window.

If you don't have the Chrome browser, you can download it in this link to Google Chrome.

Accept Permissions

The browser may request permission to use your web cam and microphone. This is normal.

You will need to accept both web cam and microphone to enter the Live Career Fair.

Mobile Device Users

When the Career Fair window connects, you will need to “show” or “hide” the keypad by clicking the icon in top-left corner of the mobile screen.

If you are on a slower wi-fi connection, the career fair may take a few extra seconds to load.

Only a Demo

Keep in mind this is for demonstration purposes only. You will not use this link for real Live Career Fairs.

Your web cam will be on, just as it will be on the day of the Live Career Fair. However you will not be recorded if you choose to leave a message.
