UVA Launches First Virtual Career Fair

Posted: Updated:

The University of Virginia makes finding a job as easy as point and click.  Tuesday the university launched its first-ever virtual career fair.

Job seekers can upload their resumes and chat with representatives from more than 45 companies.  The high-tech initiative is helping students avoid the chaos that often comes with traditional career fairs.

Barbara Hampton with UVA Career Services said, "For students who may find career fairs - the larger events where we have maybe 160 employers - if they find that type of environment intimidating or only have one or two employers that they want to target, they know when each employer is available."

A total of 22 Southeastern Conference (SEC) and Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) schools are participating in the program.  The career fair runs until Thursday.
