The Los Rios Community College District will host a Virtual Career Fair Wednesday, Oct. 20. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes representatives from a variety of companies and organizations. 

Students will be able to join both group and individual sessions with each company. Group sessions are up to 30 minutes long, while the one-on-one sessions last 10 minutes. 

Students are required to make a Handshake account (the website that runs the event) and have a resume attached to the account before attending the event. The Handshake webpage for the event includes a “Prepare for the Fair” workshop recording that covers what students need to do and know before attending the event.

Some of the attending employers include the U.S. Secret Service, Comfort Keepers and California Department of Social Services. 

Jesus Garcia, a student personnel assistant from the City College Career Center, wrote in an email that the event is valuable to students because they will have a chance to connect with employers in the Sacramento area, as well as prepare for when they transfer to a four-year school.

“[T]his is an experience for when you transfer, and you join a career fair at your other school,” Garcia said.

While the difference between in person and online is large, the online format’s “one-on-one session with the employers…means you can (get) a lot more out of this event than you would in person,” Garcia wrote.

Despite easier access to the event with its online platform, Garcia said that there has been a decrease in event attendance. 

“When the career fair was on campus, we had a lot more employers wanting to participate in the fair. We used to have 100 employers on campus while now we only get about 30,” Garcia said in the email. “And we had a lot more students join the fair since it was on campus, and they could stop at a table before heading to class.”

However, Garcia said that the virtual fairs have turned out “very good” so far and that the process is shorter and easier now that it’s online. 

“Before…we had to send invites, make flyers/print them, plan out table layout/contact operation, get up early to set up, set up workshops and much more,” Garcia said. “Now for online we set up the fair on [H]andshake, send out an invitation, set up some prep workshops, the process is a lot shorter.”
